Weekend Project: $15 Mont Blanc pen

I love to use a good pen.  I recently lost my good Cross pen that I always have carried.   In the spirit of being frugal I decided to see what I could find on a budget.  I came across a quick post on lifehacker discussing a Mont Blanc Pen for $15 bucks.   Being a person who likes a good pen, I decided to give this little project a try.


The steps are pretty easy.

1. Get a G2 pen (pro or regular)  I did both.

2. Purchase Mont Blanc refills – I got 15158

3. Trim the plastic end of the refill – I used a utility knife

4. Re-assemble and enjoy.

I chose the G2 pro for the more executive look, but realized I like the clear regular G2 becuase you can see the Mont Blanc and it reminds me that I am using a nice writing utensil.
