Loving my first Monteverde pen, this Regatta fits me to a T. It’s not too heavy or large in my smaller hand and the rustic wood appealed to me and feels so lovely. I really like the gunmetal details too, especially on the nib. I did notice when it arrived that the nib had a bit of a scratch on it but I’m so happy with the pen that it really hasn’t bothered me. I will definitely be ordering again from Truphae.
I received the Monteverde Regatta Explorer Walnut Fountain Pen with a fine nib in my very first subscription box. I have been looking at this pen to add to my collection and after reading some of the reviews stating that this is heavy metal pen, I decided to hold off on purchasing this pen. I am glad that I did. Yes, this pen does have some heft, especially posting the cap but it is not overbearing. I am not one to cap my pen so this was not a problem. It is a beautiful writer.
Great addition. The walnut and carbon fiber are stunning. Great weight, and a beautiful writer.
