Montblanc’s 2007 Writers Collection limited edition series honors the famous American novelist, poet, and screenwriter, William Faulkner (1897-1962). Regarded as one of the most influential writers of the 20th century, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1949. Faulkner donated a portion of his Nobel winnings to establish a fund to support aspiring writers which resulted in the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction.
The platinum-plated cap and barrel are in perfect condition with no cracks, nicks, scratches, dings, dents, or repairs. The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel. The fountain pen measures 5 3/8" capped and 6 1/2" posted. The left side of the cap is stamped with the Limited Edition number 10846/16000 and the right side has the William Faulkner signature.
The shape and surface of this unique writing instrument are reminiscent of the novelist’s early creative period and the style of art déco. The black-brown precious resin, shimmering like mother-of-pearl, meets the bright brilliance of the platinum finish with its subtle ring structure. This represents a shift in point of view as we encounter it in Faulkner’s works.
This Montblanc fountain pen uses a piston filling system that I have tested with water and works as it was designed to. I have taken apart the piston to clean and grease it along with cleaning the inside of the barrel. 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.
This pen has an 18-karat gold Two-Tone nib is platinum plated and decorated with an engraved biplane, recalling the great author’s passion for flying. The nib is engraved with "4810, 18K/750, Montblanc, 2007". The Montblanc NIB's writing portion (iridium) measures roughly .83mm when measured with digital calipers. This nib is designated as a Medium which matches the medium nib sticker adhered to the pen. I never inked the pen to keep it in New Old Stock, Mint, Never Inked Condition for the new collector.
This Faulkner Limited Edition Writer's Series Fountain Pen is in Mint, Never Inked condition. The combination of the ribbed platinum-plated cap and barrel with the black-brown resin looks superb. Guaranteed an original Montblanc writing instrument. and one you will be able to pass on for generations.
