  1. Hi,

    2 questions?

    I have a Montblanc M rollerball / fineliner and in the list of fineliners I do not see the one that fits my pen.

    Also for the same pen, I see that there are no fine alternative for rollerball refill. Should I understand that the alternatives is just the Schmidt one?

    Thanks.

    Can you help me?

This was previously a gift to me and the current refill (out of ink now) has “Made in Germany” , then the band “M” , then the code “202”. So I was looking at your article above for the above code but its not there. Can you help me, please as to what to get and best place, including online cheaper options. Thank you

  3. Hello
    I have a Montegrappa Forutna Rainbow pen. I have tried Monteverde medium point M23 and do not like the feel looking for something bolder and wetter. I like the Schmidt 5888 which a website said would fit but it does not. What would you suggest?
