This Montblanc fountain pen uses a piston filling system that I have tested with water and works as it was designed to. The piston works as it should and smoothly. Additionally, when removing the piston and nib from the pen, there were never any traces of ink. This is how I have concluded the fountain pen has never been inked. The piston filler is the brass type, not plastic.
