The Montblanc fountain pen is as archetypal a writing instrument as a yellow No. 2 pencil or a steel-grey MacBook. Archetypal, however, isn’t a synonym for perfection — or at least it wasn’t until now. The new Ultra Black pen eschews the traditional shiny resin in favour of an elegant matte black finish and updates the silhouettes of the original to something impossibly sleek.
The special-edition pen is only available until the end of 2016.
