An icon of writing culture, the Montblanc Meisterstück writing instrument is instantly recognizable by its shape, proportions and its precious black resin and gold fittings. However, it’s the fountain pen’s nib, referred to as the very soul of every Montblanc writing instrument, that makes it truly stand out. As part of its mission to continuously elevate the writing experience, Montblanc has introduced a new nib into its repertoire – the curved nib.
Ground at a 45 ° angle, the Montblanc curved nib is particularly suited for intricate Chinese, JapaneseandKoreancalligraphyaswellasforsketchinganddrawingdesigns. Aformofself- expression and creativity, the art of calligraphy requires the versatility of a nib that allows for a variety of line widths, shapes and styles to enhance the beauty of the handwriting. Depending on the angle of the curved nib on paper, the calligrapher can achieve wide horizontal lines and thin vertical lines while also turning the nib upside down for a fine line suited for detailed drawing.
Hand-sculpted from solid gold by master artisans over 35 skilled steps, each nib is the result of elevated expertise, dedicated workmanship, as well as intuition for each fundamental step that takes years to master.
