In 1906 Alfred Nehemias, a Hamburg banker and August Eberstein, a Berlin engineer, concluded an agreement to manufacture the newly invented fountain pen and established a factory in Hamburg

In 1909 The first Montblanc fountain pen was launched. This new writing instrument featured significant improvements, and its name was chosen – so the story goes – to represent its peak of technical achievement and highest European craftsmanship

Ever since then Montblanc have been renowned for quality and design. The early pens and particularly pens from the 1920's to the 1930's have been highly sought after by collectors. Later pens have been issued in limited editions and the later  Meisterstück range are superb every day writers
