Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this wonderful Montblanc Writers Edition Honore de Balzac Rollerball Pen, which comes with its book style Montblanc presentation boxe (including outer) and stamped information booklet – confirming first purchase on 5th April 2018. The pen has barely been used and is presented in wonderful condition. Only 8400 pens were produced and this is number 7773.
Ever year Montblanc honour a great literary figure, as part of their writers limited edition. In 2013 it was Honoré de Balzac, the French novelist and playwright.
The design of the pen is inspired by Balzac’s style, with his pointed shoes being reflected in the shapre of the cone. The striped black and grey barrel are a nod to the “cutaway”, which was an important part of his wardrobe. The clip and clip ring reflect the decorated walking stick that he carried. Balzac’s signature is engraved on the cap.
The pen is fitted with a new rollerball refill. If you’d rather use it as a fineliner, then you’d simply have to purchase the relevant refill – these are widely available online.
The important details are as follows…

As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
