For more than 100 years the Montblanc name has stood for the art of writing, while the snow-covered peak of the Mont Blanc mountain has symbolised the high-quality status of the brand. Montblanc's classic fountain pen series, the Meisterstück, is perhaps the most widely-recognised fountain pen range in the world. The classic torpedo shape has remained virtually unchanged since it's creation in 1924, and has since become a cult item - often imitated, but never equalled. Nowadays Montblanc produces a whole collection of luxury goods, from pens and watches to leather goods and accessories, with each being the culmination of years of passion and expertise. The Pen Shop began life as T&G Allan in 1858, a stationers, newsagent and bookseller based in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Before long, new departments were opened, selling gifts, pens and greetings cards, until finally in 1946 the first Pen Shop was opened. In 1987, The Pen Shop expanded and became Europe's largest writing instrument specialist. Now, almost 15 years later, we're proud to have helped thousands of people find their perfect writing instrument, and to have discovered the art of writing. It is perhaps fitting, then, that after many years of working together, Montblanc and The Pen Shop are thrilled to announce the opening of our 'online boutique', where you can find the whole range of Montblanc products - from pens and pencils to bags and belts. Why not take a look, there's something for everyone. We're sure you'll love the selection. Not only is it a huge leap forward for us with regard to the range of items on offer, but now everything can be ordered directly through our website - no need to call our Mail Order department. You can find the boutique by clicking here, or selecting 'MONTBLANC' from the menu at the left of our homepage.
