I always wanted a Mont Blanc pen and it took me til two years ago to be able to justify (or afford) one. I have seen replicas, or more appropriately fakes and I had no desire to own one.
If I were you I'd bide my time until I could afford the real thing.
[SIZE="1"]Ah... You can't beat the cold steel and the badger. All this electrical rubbish, little wheels spinning around all over the place for callow youths and peach fluff, Not for a man's beard. Razor blades for men! I think we'll have this on number 9. If you're going to have a shave have a close one!
