60s-70s Montblancs (x4/22x)

I was wondering if anyone in the club has a Montblanc 14, 24, or 34, or any of the 22x (220, etc.) or similar pens from the 60s and 70s. I've been thinking of picking one up as I really like the style but after seeing a picture of a 224 next to a Lamy 2000 I'm thinking they might be too slim for me, so I'd like to handle one first.

These are the sorts of styles I'm referring to:

Cheers.

Thanks to all who brought Pelikan writing instruments to the March 17th meeting. In the picture above, you can see Julienne's and Glenn M's fine examples, from the trusty Pelikanos & Pelikano Jr fountain pens to the pricier piston-fillers in the SouverÀn line (M400, M600, M800, M1000) and the lovely Pelikan 'Cities' (Special Edition) "Piazza Novona" pen.

Our next meeting is scheduled for Thursday April 21st, at the usual place and time (Perks pen store, 5844 Cambie St, Vancouver, BC. Meeting from 6:30pm-8:30pm approx.) Our meeting theme will be Stationery (new, different & old standbys) so please bring some examples for us to see. All are welcome! Any questions? Please email us at vancouverpenclub@gmail.com
