Item no: 129275
The Montblanc Meisterstück 149 Calligraphy curved nib GT is a design that writes history. The Meisterstück collection was introduced in 1924, with the name meaning"Masterpiece", and has become a symbol of high quality luxury.
The cap and barrel of the Montblanc Meisterstück GT 149 Calligraphy Curved Nib Fountain pen are made of black precious resin, with the iconic white Montblanc emblem inlaid in the cap. This edition of the famous fountain pen is crowned with the innovative curved nib, which is handcrafted in Au750/18K solid gold and adorned with three delicate parallel lines; a symbol inspired by calligraphy movements.
The curved nib is sharpened at an angle of approximately 45 degrees, which allows for a variety of writing styles and line widths depending on the angle and orientation the writing instrument is held. Similar to an architect nib, the curved nib writes a thinner line (width M) when moved vertically, and a wider line (width BB) when moved horizontally. A curved nib is particularly suitable for Chinese, Japanese and Korean calligraphy, for sketching and drawing designs, as well as adding flair to normal handwriting.
The art of calligraphy, which allows for a form of self-expression and creativity, requires the versatility of a nib that allows for a variety of line widths, shapes and styles to enhance the beauty of handwriting.
