Montblanc launches its Bespoke Nib Configurator at selected flagship stores
Handwriting, with its curves and flourishes, serves as a mirror to the soul, revealing nuances of personality and emotion that elude typewritten text on a screen. Each letter penned is a testament to the writer’s uniqueness, and it’s in the nuanced strokes of the pen, that Montblanc finds its canvas for personal expression.
Montblanc reasserts the timeless value of the handwritten word with its innovative Bespoke Nib Configurator. An addition to the existing Bespoke Nib service, it allows newly purchased Montblanc Meisterstück fountain pens to be further customised, optimising nib functionality and design to meet individual needs and tastes.
Customers can book a private consultation at Montblanc’s selected flagship stores, where they will discover an exclusive nib tester coffret that showcases the full spectrum of Montblanc nibs. This hands-on experience is enriched by the personalised guidance of a Montblanc specialist, ensuring the selection of a nib that suits one’s writing style and preference. Accompanied by a bespoke digital configurator, this in-person exploration is augmented by a comprehensive digital archive, offering the ability to compare nib characteristics, designs, and writing styles through an extensive library of 3D images and videos.
From customising the width and flexibility of the nib, to embedding personal symbols or precious stones, each choice is a step closer to achieving a pen that is truly one’s own. Following a three-month crafting period, clients will then enjoy a bespoke writing experience that rekindles the sensorial pleasure of putting pen to paper.
“Handwriting is an intimately personal experience, which is why we have developed a fully bespoke service that caters to our customers’ unique writing needs. By combining the latest technology with Montblanc’s longstanding tradition of craftsmanship, our bespoke nib configurator allows clients to customise both the technical and aesthetic features of the nib to add a truly personal touch to their Montblanc fountain pen,” says Alessandra Elia, Montblanc Director of Writing Culture.
