Guide Review - Hommage a Frederic Chopin Meisterstuck Fountain Pen by Mont Blanc

For the Collector
Mont Blanc's classic Meisterstuck line of pens has been around since the company's founding in 1906 as the Simplo Filler Pen company. Five years later the company became Mont Blanc, and in 1913 adopted its famous 6-point rounded white star logo symbolizing the famous mountain after which it's named. The Meisterstuck line of pens come in several variations in size, color, and writing mechanism. The Hommage a Frederic Chopin Meisterstuck fountain pen has a 14 K gold nib inlaid with platinum. Its body and cap are made of precious black resin and it's detailed in 14 K plated gold, though you can also get it in platinum.

Both are extremely gorgeous. Many lovers of fine writing instruments often collect Mont Blanc pens, and since my purchase, I may have become a collector too!

For the Lover of Classical Music
The Hommage a Frederic Chopin Meisterstuck fountain pen comes in a beautiful black box adorned with a golden Chopin signature.

After removing the cover you'll not only find an exquisite pen, you'll find an exquisite recording of Chopin's Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 1 in E minor and Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 2 in F minor. The concertos were performed by the Montblanc Philharmonia of the Nations conducted by Justus Frantz. I've never heard the orchestra before, but its quality is easily comparable to many of the world's greatest symphony orchestras. Chopin's only two piano concertos were composed in 1830, and were first performed in Warsaw later that year.
