Yesterday I got the call I had been waiting for for like 2 or 3 weeks!!! I had taken my Mont Blanc pencil into the pen store to get fixed - the lead was not coming out correctly (well, not at all really). We had to ship the pencil back to Germany so they could repair it. Yesterday I got the call that it was back and ready for me to pick up!! I went out today and got it (and paid my hefty fee for it...). I was so excited to have my pencil back. Now my pen is not lonely :) Notice on the pic that the lead is out just the right length for writing!!!!

Uh, yeah, you musta missed that discussion - it cost $75 to have it repaired, $11 for postage. But I am so glad to have it back! I got the pencil as a graduation gift when I got my accounting degree - 2002. The pen I just got as a combination Christmas/thank you for holding down the fort gift last year. My boss was out of work because of back issues and I was doing all the work by myself for about a month. The do write really nice though!

I've been using it like crazy all week! It's just too funny how a dumb (expensive) pencil can make all the difference!!!

Happy you got your pencil back. I know some said it would be cheaper to just buy a new pencil but it took a lot of hard work for you to earn that pencil.

I don't know that I thought if it that way, but you're right. It wasn't easy going back to school as a single mom, with 2 teenage kids, working full time, getting my CPA license, and proving myself at my job... Thanks! I do deserve it :)

Yes, just about all day long. Being a CPA, I need to make notes in clients files or on their paperwork.

Gee that must be some pencil, I have never heard of a pencil like this that would be so important, infact i didn't think people used pencils anymore, I know the other day I told someone biro ink doesn't seem to last as long these days...maybe we should all go back to pencils

I'm a CPA and I use pencils all day long... Both the pencil and the pen were gifts - from different bosses. They cost a couple hundred dollars a peice, so yes, they are very nice.
