Monteverde Monza 3 Fountain Pen
I got this pen in my Inkredible box and wasn't super blown away by the look (it's a decent quality blue plastic with just a touch of metal trim). It's very easy to set up, which hasn't been my experience with a lot of other pens, and the nibs do not clog up. The combination of pen and ink that I received writes very very smoothly and, while light, the pen does fit well in the hand.
As others mentioned, the storage box is a big bonus. I like to be able to set it aside and know it isn't rolling around or getting damaged, and you could preload your other cartridges if you wished, letting you switch out smoothly as needed.
So honestly, not my favorite pen at all. This is only my second fountain pen. This pen is light weight, literally it feels like I am writing with a plastic straw. I have cheaper pens that weigh more than this pen. However, it is still very comfortable to write with. It is made completely of plastic with a screw on lid with minimal metal trim. The tips look sturdy and have clear ink feeds. The piston converters have a small plastic ball in them. I'm not 100% sure the purpose behind this I'm only assuming that it is for mixing inks that separate.
Being new to the world of fountain pens I can appreciate this pen for the accessories that come with it. You receive 3 nibs and piston converters for each of them, then 2 pre-filled ink cartridges, and they all come in a case. The case is a thick plastic case with two layers of dense foam. The first layer is a solid piece the length and width of the case; the second layer has individual cutouts for each and every piece. I recieved this pen in the 30 dollar Inkredible box for my first month in September. And my only complaint about it is it is too light for me. Other than that it's a really excellent pen, easy to use, and great for a starter just learning the differences in the nibs. I actually almost bought this because I was too impatient waiting for the first box to ship. So I am very glad I waited. For the price it is a very nice pen set.
This was such a great purchase. The value of a beautiful pen with the options of three different nibs and multiple cartridges is awesome. It has a beautiful feel, color barrel and writes very well.
I got this pen in my July Inkredible box. I adore the fact that there are three different nibs. This is the pen I wish I had started with.
