***UPDATE*** As of October 2016, the Monteverde Poquito has been discontinued by our distributor.

Here is a quick look at the Monteverde Poquito, one of the smallest fountain pens around. It’s awesome for a purse pen, pocket pen, just something to write quick little notes.

Monteverde Poquito in Pink

Pros:

  • It’s super-small and light
  • It’s pretty affordable at $24
  • Takes standard international short cartridges, which are pretty widely available
  • Comes with one cartridge to get you going
  • Nib is smooth and reliable
  • 4 different color options
Cons:
  • Pen is so small, it won’t fit any converter, so you have to use cartridges
  • Only comes available with a medium nib
  • May be tiring to write with for a long time because it’s so thin

You can check out how the nib compares to other pens with the writing samples I’ve done in the Nib Nook.
