    I have watched a number of your reviews of Mont Blanc pens and have heard you often say that they are not worth the price. Can you possibly do a video in which you suggest pens of similar quality but less cost?
    The first pen I bought was an ASC pen. 🙂 And I love my Mont Blancs.

      The Faber-Castell E-Motion comes to mind.

      • Robert Stearns

        I guess it really depends on what one is looking for in pens. As an ink delivery system for a person mainly concerned with functionality the Faber-Castell E-Motion is probably great.
        I like to compare apples to apples so my question was really asking do you have thoughts on pens that are exactly the same as Montblanc or Armando Simoni Club pens that are at a lower price point? Example: 18K gold NIB vs 18K gold NIB, good line variation vs good line variation,collectability, but less money.
        *Of course for me pens are far more than something to mark up paper with ink, they are an investment. So running to a very low cost pen is not at all interesting to me. I may be odd in that respect.

        I find myself trying very hard to catch up with a lot of price points and history and companies. it is a fun challenge. 🙂
