When you hold a Mont Blanc pen, you’re not just holding a decent writing tool; you’re holding a well-crafted and valuable piece that’s one of a kind. Naturally that kind of a thing doesn’t come cheap and there’s only a finite number of them made to keep them unique, which is how we end up having so many replicas out there.
Some of these replicas are obviously very low quality and you don’t have to be an expert to tell that they’re fake; however, other replicas can be pretty close to the original thing which makes them even harder to spot. A lot of people end up getting ripped off because of these troublesome replicas of the real thing. If you’re looking for a high quality pen for yourself, you should read the following t know how to tell if Mont Blanc is authentic.
Mont Blanc realises that there are many imposters selling imitation pens in their name, so they have a system that helps their customers buy only authentic pens. All Mont Blanc pen models have their own serial number engraved in them. Some imitation pens will have this serial number as well, which is why just looking for it isn’t enough; you have to look it up on Mont Blanc’s online database. If it doesn’t show up there, they didn’t make it.
The Finer Details
No matter how hard the makers of fake Mont Blancs try to deceive you, there are some details they can’t copy otherwise they’re going to be sued for it. The most easily spotted detail is the logo; imitation pens have very bulky and unclear logos. In addition to this, you can see all the specs and details very closely on the official site, which is why it’s very easy to spot the differences when you hold a fake one.
