MeisterstuckJust hearing the word perks me up. I absolutely love Mont Blanc Writing Instruments!
Being the daughter of an advertising specialty entrepreneur, I never lacked for pens or pencils. I grew up knowing all about writing instruments. I have visited the manufacturing facilities for Parker Pens, Bic Papermate and many others.
I have kept journals for years and have gone through my share of pens. I have written a lot and continue to do so as a professional journalist.
It always seemed that every attorney I ever worked for always had a Mont Blanc pen. I didn't know what was so special about them until one day I went into a Mont Blanc boutique.
I tried writing with one of the pens and it was unbelievable. It was like a swan gliding on water. The pen felt like an extension of my hand. The feeling was like nothing else I could describe. My hand felt as if it was being made love to. My thoughts, begging to be committed to paper, flew out of my fingers through the pen.
I knew that I had to have one. Ah, but which one. I tried a few and still couldn't decide which one was for me.
I took home the catalog and poured over the information. This is an investment purchase. Much like buying a house or car except that it will stay with you longer than either of those and it is personalized with your name on it. It is really an extension of you.
I have gone back to try to narrow down the selection. Within the Meisterstuck line there are over six different styles. I also like the Etoile line.
I'm sure I'll know which one is "write" for me. I'll know because the pen will just feel "write." <---- spelled wrong on purpose. :-)
