Montblanc Pens


Montblanc is easily the best recognized pen brand in the world today. It is one of the very few brands that has stand-alone boutiques here in the United States located in most of the best malls or high-rent shopping districts. Montblanc has grown from being mostly famous for pens into a lifestyle brand featuring watches, leather goods and other accessories.

Montblanc sprung from the Simplo Filler Pen Company founded in Hamburg, Germany in 1906. In 1910, Simplo Filler officially became "Montblanc", named for the tallest mountain in Europe to symbolize the high aspirations that the founders had for the brand and the high level of quality that they built into it. The Montblanc star was born in 1913.

It took nearly a decade more for Montblanc to grow to resemble the company that we know today. In 1924, the Meisterstück, (Masterpiece) collection was unveiled.

By 1930, the number "4810" is engraved on Montblanc fountain pen nibs. The significance of this designation is to mark the height of Montblanc, the mountain peak, in meters and to celebrate its standing as the highest peak in Europe.
