Since the invention of writing, the word on paper has fueled the amazing progress of humanity. The ability to write effectively and beautifully has long been revered. Guided by a pioneering spirit since 1906, Montblanc revolutionized the writing culture with the innovations it created over time. Today, Maison continues to push the limits and bring the best of craftsmanship to each of the writing instruments it develops.
The most iconic writing instrument, the fountain pen uses a nib to apply water-based ink to paper. The ink glides effortlessly across the surface of the page, which means glorious streaks and less pressure on the paper. You can even achieve a more unique writing style by adapting your choice of pen nib, shape, and angle.
Rollerballs use the same design as ballpoint pens, but with water-based ink. It flows quickly and penetrates more into the paper than the ink in a ballpoint pen. Ease of flow requires less pressure and creates a smooth and comfortable writing experience.
This is one of the most common and well-known pen types. The ink used in ballpoint pens is oil-based and dries faster than other types of ink, which means less smudging when you are writing. Because the ink is thick, ballpoint pens use less ink but need more pressure on the paper.
