  1. Montblanc Meisterst├╝ckClassique is not surprisingly regarded as one replica mont blanc ballpoint pen of Montblanc's top ten fountain pens, replica great characters edition and perhaps the most iconic of the Montblanc writing series. This pen is coated with precious black resin and has a bright white star badge. It is a must-have for collectors and has a well-known name, with German as a "masterpiece". Each pen has a separate serial number, which means that no two pens are the same. Similarly, each nib of Montblanc is individually stamped after manual testing by Montblanc's master craftsmen.
