I have a Bordeaux colored Montblanc Meisterstuck mechanical pencil. I keep it in my daily planner and use it all the time.

Nice !!

They are great writing instruments !

I've had mine for a LONG time, and they still look like new.

Mine was a best man present from my closest dental school buddy, for his second wedding. The marriage lasted about 2 years, but the pen soldiers on ! For his third time at bat, he imported a bride from Russia. I got no pen for that one.

Nice collection Mike! I'm missing the mechanical pencil and ball-point in my LeGrand collection.

Do you use any of these as a daily writer?

I use my MonBlanc LeGrand Rollerball everyday, matter of fact I never leave home without it!

This is a super old thread, but figured I'd revive it.

I very rarely use any of my MB pens. I'd lose it for sure if I bought it to work, plus I wouldn't put it through that torture.

Frankie, I got to see your MB at the GTG, so I'd assume you use yours on a daily basis.

My MB LeGrand Platinum RollerBall goes with me just about everywhere I go. It gets used all the time and is very rare for me to leave it behind. Somehow I have managed to make it part of my daily carry and am aware of it's whereabouts at all times so it does not get lost during my daily travels.

Kills me when people ask me if I have a pen that they can borrow, but I let them use it, I remove the cap and keep the cap within my possession.

Hmmm, owning a few myself, maybe I should start to carry one around with me as well.

My Montblanc is part of my daily carry, if I don't have it within my possession I feel off. This helps me with not loosing it.

That's good, but the one I wanted wrote in many cartoon dialects.

Can't go wrong with the MB LeGrand Platinum Rollerball. That is my EDC writing instrument. Rarely do I ever leave home without it. You saw it during the GTG. I bring it everywhere I go, even to non-business functions.

I concur, I have the gold, but would prefer the Platinum, bought mine about 14 years ago and don't think the platinum was available then.

Is the LeGrand line bigger than the others ? Yours looks like it's double the size of my ballpoint. I think my next one will be the platinum LeGrand.
