Never had a Montblanc fountain pen, but here’s my first ever, almost 50 years old Pelikano, which surfaced among my father’s junk when we cleared out his estate the other year. Especially designed for left-handed writers, such as myself.

But I do have a Montblanc automatic watch, which was also found among the old man’s rubbish, be it genuine or not (I lean towards the latter). An heirloom all the same.

At any rate I’m going to have to give the pen an overhaul and get me some ink cartridges, seeing as I have remained left-handed to this day, which means it could once again be put to good use.

The watch? Honestly a little too flamboyant for my taste.
