Yes. When I first wrote with a Mont Blanc, I wasn't terribly impressed. It seemed a little smoother than average, but not much. It took a split second for the ink to flow causing your first letter to have a bald spot. Once the cartridge was worked in, it was another story. It feels like writing with grease on glass it's so smooth. The pen practically writes by itself.
Now is your chance to have your own German engineered Mont Blanc fine writing instrument for the cost of a $0.25 pen and a $7 dollar Mont Blanc refill. It's better this way, trust me. Your colleagues will appreciate your down-to-earthness for using such a humble pen. Little will they know your Pinto of a pen is rocking a McLaren engine.
Step 1: Collect tools and supplies
-a Bic Clic Stic
-a Mont Blanc $7 refill
-Safety cutter or Exacto Knife
Of course, be careful when using the incredibly unsafe "Safety" cutter or Exacto and keep Super glue off your flesh, especially orfices.
If you have the opportunity, pull the clicking mechanism off of the backend of the pen prior to purchase and measure the the length that inserts into the pen body. Some of them insert 1" others insert 1 3/32". You want the one that goes in 1". You can use the other one, but you'll have to shave off 3/32". Come on people, it's a Bic. They don't have the precision and constistancy of the German engineered Mont Blanc. In due time, in due time...
