The Monteverde Super Mega Abalone fountain pen collection features the highly iridescent inner nacre layer of authentic abalone shell from New Zealand. The shell of abalone, traditionally, has been used as a decorative item in jewelry, buttons, and as an inlay in furniture and musical instruments. The inner shell of the abalone is a swirl of intense colors, ranging from deep cobalt blue and peacock green to purples, creams, and pinks. Hand-turned and hand-polished, the barrel brilliantly reflects shimmering light off its surface, enhancing the stunning colors of the Abalone shell.
The Mega collection is one of the oldest and most successful Monteverde USA collections. Initially launched solely as an InkBall pen, Mega quickly gained worldwide recognition for its extraordinary performance and unique design. It has been featured in some of the world's most prestigious publications including the New York Times. The Mega is well known among pen aficionados for its substantial size, durability and exceptional writing performance.
It comes with a standard international converter and an ink cartridge. It is offered with your choice of a reliable, smooth-writing German made JoWo #6 black steel nib in extra-fine, fine, medium, 1.1mm stub or the JoWo black Omniflex flexible steel nib for variation in line width.
This Super Mega Abalone fountain pen is offered with gunmetal trim.
