Every year Mont Blanc creates a new limited Meisterstück Edition pen with a theme.

In 2015 the concept was based around shell inlay. The challenge was how to inlay such a heritage material into a pen frame of modern day material.

The first issue was which type of shell would compliment such a classic design both in colour and elegance.

After much review Mont Blanc decided on the natural beauty of the Tahitian Black Lip shell, the mother of the famous black pearls.

The second issue was the development of the related new technologies, in particular those needed for securing the very demanding precision-level of the inlay.

We are proud that NSQ Solutions successfully supported the Mont Blanc Artisan Atelier-team in resolving this issue as well.
