Montblanc is a classic – and I have reviewed some of their most iconic models over the past few years (e.g. 146, 149, Rouge et Noir). Most Montblanc pens do have a distinctive look, and you’ll probably recognise them pretty fast.
There is one Montblanc pen, however, that I would argue does stick out in very peculiar ways. While it is very timeless in design, as most other regular line Montblanc writing instruments, it is distinct in its way of being non-classy, and super minimalist instead. Having a Meisterstück as the Montblanc-reference in the back of your head, the M does indeed come as quite a bit of a surprise.
Actually, I don’t know if this pen is totally not Montblanc in its appearance, or if it is very Montblanc. Or whether it is the snowcap logo being all over the place that prevents me from mistaking the pen for a Lamy – which by no means is meant in despicable ways, as Lamy is a stellar design company.
Be this as it may, the M certainly comes with plenty of greatness: a plateaued barrel, a magnetic push on cap that sort of auto-closes and auto-aligns the wire-clip with the plateaued barrel, a never-before-seen nib design from Montblanc, and some more. All in all, I am really glad to now have a video review of this pen for you!
Before we hop into the review, I would like to take the opportunity to thank Appelboompennen for supporting the review of this pen. You can also buy the Montblanc M in their webshop (no affiliate – just a friendly pointer).
