Montblanc Great Characters Edition Miles Davis Fountain Pen, which comes with it’s original large presentation box and information booklet, dated 10th April 2017. The pen has been used daily but is still presented in very good condition. The original finenib was exchanged for a glorious BB Double Broad offering, which is a delight to write with.
This Great Characters Edition honours one of the most famous and respected jazz musicians of all time, Miles Dewey Davis. The shape of the writing instrument is inspired by the trumpet, with it being further emphasised by the finger buttons on the clip. The blue cone is a nod to his famous album “Kind of Blue”. The pattern on the cap and barrel highlight the diverse movements he represented: Jazz Fusion, Modal Jazz, Hard Bop, Cool Jazz and Bebop. The 2006 marking on the cap ring refers to the year he was inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame while the shape of the cone stems from the special ‘Heim’ mouthpiece he used for playing.
This is a piston filling pen, so bottled ink is your weapon of choice. As mentioned, the pen is fitted with a Double Broad 18k rhodium plated nib, which features his iconic silhouette.
The important details are as follows…
– 18k Double Broad Nib
– Serial Number markings on the clip
– Presentation Box
– Very Good Condition
