The Buck-Ninety-Nine Bag-O-Pens & Pencils (many neat colored sketching pencils, ended up comprising nearly two whole sets of different brands)

The Five that stood out from the crowd. Oddly, all these fine mechanical pencils are sized 0.5mm, and the leads are all 0.9mm

Seeing the cap logo of this pen is what made me buy the bag. Do you recognize it from the ink bottle I got a couple weeks ago?

Says “MONT BLANC” on the band, moment of truth – is it a fountain pen, maybe a piston-filler that goes with the ink bottle?

The Mont Blanc refill inside is empty. The pen is very nicely made. everything screws apart and together nicely on hidden machined threads. Mont Blanc normally wants north of $300 for their ballpoints, so I guess they’d be well made…

No serial number engraved on the clip band. Could mean it either predates that practice, or it’s a pretty well-made fake. I dunno enough to tell, It looks to me like a Starwalker Fineliner Rollerball model, but I’m not real hip to Mont Blancs.
