Monteverde has just released its most affordable fountain pen yet, the Monza. At $16, it’s an incredible value and could be a great competitive option for a first fountain pen. Let’s take a look….
The Monteverde Monza is offered in four different demonstrator colors – Crystal Clear, Gray Sky, Honey Amber, and Island Blue. The benefit of the translucent body is that you can see your ink level!
The Monza fills via cartridge/converter – it comes with a small converter, which is always a nice consideration when it’s included for free. It uses short standard international cartridges.
It is currently offered in two nib sizes – Fine and Medium – and we’re told an Extra-Fine is planned for 2018. The steel #5 nibs are smooth writing, and the clear feed is fun too. You can really see the capillary action of the ink flow at work.
The fountain pen comes in a plastic pen box that you can reuse, either as a pencil box or to store miscellaneous fountain pen accessories in. Each box matches the pen in color.
To make this an even sweeter deal, the Monza is eligible for our free Monteverde ink deal. Now through the end of the year, we’re offering a free 90ml bottle of ink with purchase of all Monteverde pens – Monza included!
Have you tried the Monteverde Monza? What do you think — would you recommend it as a first fountain pen?
