Fact 23 of #90facts:
If you have a look at a Montblanc Meisterstück nib you will see that there is a cut from the nib tip to the heart hole. This cut is made with a wafer-thin disc of diamond dust and graphite and is necessary for perfect ink flow.
Fact 22 of #90facts:
Did you know that every Montblanc Meisterstück nib has a tip made of iridium? Iridium is one of the hardest materials and is even rarer than gold or platinum. If the nib tip were just made of gold, it would be too soft and quickly “written away”. Experience the feeling of writing with a Montblanc Meisterstück yourself in a Montblanc Boutique near you http://montbl.com/storelocator.
Fact 21 of #90facts:
The stamped nib is still flat after the embossing process. Now the gold nib needs to be die forged. Afterwards, the nib has a curved shape, which makes it more stable.
Fact 20 of #90facts:
The nib engraver needs to be an absolute perfectionist to create the perfect nib stamp for a Montblanc nib. He has been working for Montblanc for over 30 years and is a true master craftsman.
Fact 19 of #90facts:
Every Montblanc Meisterstück nib is embossed with a nib stamp. The design of the nib stamp is transformed with the pressure of 25 tonnes in the gold.
Fact 18 of #90facts:
Did you know that the hole in the Montblanc Meisterstück nib is called "heart hole” as it had the shape of a heart in former times and is important for proper ink flow?
Fact 17 of #90facts:
In order to provide the perfect writing experience, the Montblanc Meisterstück gold nib must guarantee an unchanging form while remaining elastic and flexible. To attain this, a very special rolling process is necessary, the so-called Strakverlauf, that gives the gold band a conical contour. When the gold nibs are cut out of this band the thickest part is at the tip of the nib.

Fact 16 of #90facts:
Every Montblanc Meisterstück nib starts life as a solid gold band and, depending on the collection, either in 14- or 18-carat gold. Find your own Meisterstück in a Montblanc Boutique near you http://montbl.com/storelocator or in our Online Boutique http://montbl.com/6ifS.
