Montblanc’s 2005 Writers Collection limited edition series honors the Miguel de Cervantes. The design of the Writers Edition Miguel Cervantes was inspired by the windmills whose shape is reflected in the writing instrument and the clip. Their form, tapering in opposite directions, symbolizes the different characters of the hero Don Quixote and his squire Sancho Panza. The body of this Writer's Edition shines in brown marbled lacquer with the writer's signature on the right side of the cap. The 18kt gold nib is engraved with the outline of a windmill.
The gold-plated and lacquered cap and barrel are in perfect condition with no cracks, nicks, scratches, dings, dents, blemishes, or repairs. The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel.

The top of the cap displays the famous Montblanc snowcap
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.
This pen has an 18-karat gold nib and is decorated with an engraved Windmill, recalling the great author’s classic "Don Quixote". The nib is engraved with "4810, 18K/750, Montblanc, 2005". 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 only to keep it in New Old Stock, Mint, Never Inked Condition for the new collector.
Cervantes is widely regarded as the greatest writer in the Spanish language and one of the world’s pre-eminent novelists. He is best known for his novel Don Quixote, a work often cited as both the first modern novel and one of the pinnacles of literature. Much of his life was spent in poverty and obscurity, many of its details are disputed or unknown, and the bulk of his surviving work was produced in the three years preceding his death. Despite this, his influence and literary contribution are reflected by the fact that Spanish is often referred to as “the language of Cervantes”.
This Limited Edition Writer's Series paying homage to Miguel de Cervantes is in Mint Condition, Never Inked, with the original boxes and documentation. It is in Perfect condition and guaranteed to be an original Montblanc writing instrument. A superb writing instrument to add to your writing arsenal collection!
