Hey Mark,

Moleskin, yes! have I got the perfect fountain pen for you.  For many years 
I have used a Montblanc Traveler fountain pen along with Moleskins and other 
types of note books.  Less than a year ago I acquired a new Montblanc 149 
fountain pen because it felt so good to grasp but alas I can't part with my 
Traveler so my 149 has never been inked and I have never offered to let it 
go but.. if an interested party who remembers the joy of putting pen and ink 
to paper was to come forward I would seriously consider parting with it.
