Monteverde Monza, Pen World profile and stocking stuffers

"I really like those Monza pens!" (He just purchased #s 2, 3 and 4).
H. A., Crystal Lake, IL
"Dear Norman, the Monteverde Monza and Tool pens arrived today. The quality of the Monza is much higher than I expected, and it writes  a beautifully consistent line. I would not hesitate recommending this pen to anyone. While I am aware that the pen may be used as an eyedropper filler, I have chosen the converter for now, and that is working just fine. The Tool pen is at the other end of the spectrum, being a heavier and very sturdy pen. While I do not wish to demean the writing quality of the Monza, the nib on the Tool Pen is really a dream to use. The quality of these nibs certainly belies the price points of both pens. With all the ďextrasĒ that this pen contains, I will be keeping it in my brief case for various emergency fixes. As always, Norman, I know the TLC you give these nibs has much to do with the pleasant experiences we receive from your pens. That extra effort is most appreciated, for I know it is time consuming and delicate work. Thanks also for the relaxed professionalism of your videos. They are informative and helpful, and I find them very restful. Best wishes for the New Year!"
C. K., San Antonio, TX

"Hi Norman, the repair worked beautifully! The polish is barely visible or tangible, and itís keeping the ink just where it should be. Thanks so much for your help on it! And thanks once again for providing such great products with your impeccable service. The
Hero 616 is amazingly smooth for such a fine nib (and itís one of the finest Iíve ever used). It will serve very well for marking my drafts and my studentsí as Iíd hoped it would. The Monza is a great new find as well. Itís good to see Monteverde getting serious about entry-level ones, and the demonstrator look combined with the easy-glide nib makes this a very fun pen to useóand watch! The clear feed is also helpful for making sure Iíve got enough saturation to get right down to writing, and the PR Chocolat looks great in it. Thanks once again, and have a lovely holiday season! Cheers,"
C. T., Easton, PA

Island Blue fountain pen -- F or M nib            $16.00   

Honey Amber fountain pen -- F or M nib       $16.00    (F sold out)

Gray Sky fountain pen -- F or M nib                $16.00    (F sold out)

 

 

The Monza makes for a perfect stocking stuffer, knock-around or beginner's pen (although I've been using mine almost non-stop for several weeks, as I find it a very alluring size and weight).

Measuring 5-1/4" capped, 5-3/4" posted and 4-1/2" with cap held aside, this is a pen that fits anyone's hand well (this is a pen that I find more comfortable posted, a rarity for me).

 

 

The Crystal Clear is obviously a full demonstrator, with the ink readily apparent under all lighting conditions. What's really nice is that the other three versions can also easily show ink level when held in front of a backlight of some sort.

 

What's also a boon for many, is that the pen has a rubber gasket between the section and barrel. Why is that significant? It's because many fountain pen users like to convert their pens to eyedropper-fillers (the pen also comes with a cartridge converter and international-style ink cartridges as well) in order to get a copious amount of ink in their pen (as the entire barrel is being used as the ink reservoir. Normally, it one were to see if the pen worked as an eyedropper -- besides the presence of a gasket -- you'd want to apply some silicone grease to the section threads to act as a sealant against ink leakage. When I got my sample, I decided to live dangerously and forego that added precaution. Now, your mileage may vary, but I've been using the pen as an eyedropper for weeks now, without any problem at all.

 

 

 

Each color pen comes with a matching color gift box. The box contains the pen, piston converter for bottled ink (such as Private Reserve or Monteverde) and two short international style ink cartridges.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Crystal Clear Calligraphy Set (1mm, 1.5mm and 2mm nibs)    $30.00

Perfect for discovering the fine visual expression of words, each calligraphy set is individually packaged with 1 transparent demonstrator pen body, 3 removable front sections, 3 stainless steel calligraphy nibs, 3 standard piston ink converters for bottled ink, and 2 ink cartridges. The stainless steel nibs included with each set come in 1mm, 1.5mm and 2mm sizes.

 

 

Crystal Clear Deluxe Calligraphy Set (1mm, 1.5mm and 2mm nibs)    $70.00    Sold out, but can be ordered

The Deluxe version of the calligraphy set not only includes everything described above, but 4 30ml bottles of Monteverde's spectacular new ink colors: Charoite, Fireopal, Onyx and Sapphire. In addition, a bottle of the new Pen Flush* is included, designed to keep your pens as clean as a whistle!


 

*Guaranteed to remove the old and stubborn build-up in fountain pens with the perfect balance of ingredients. Makes your pen write like new again!


Ingridients: Distilled Water, Ammonium Hydroxide, Biodegradable Surfactants, Propylene Glycol, Potassium Sorbate, Glycerine.

 

Instructions:

1. Clean a fountain pen with distilled or tap water until the water runs clear.

2. Fill and flush your fountain pen with Monteverde USAģ Pen Flush, repeating to remove any extra ink.

3. Fill and flush with clean water again to remove any remaining Pen Flush.

 

 

 

Warning:
Do not drink. Do not breath in directly. Keep away from eyes, from open fire, out of reach of children and pets. Wash skin thoroughly after handling. Do not mix with any other solution. Do not mix with bleach. If swallowed: Rinse mouth. DO NOT induce vomiting. If on skin(or hair): Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water/shower. If inhaled: Remove person to fresh air and keep comfortable for breathing. If in eyes: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Immediately call a poison center 1(800) 222-1222 or a doctor. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.

 

 

As with all new pens, I recommend to run a dilute solution of dishwashing soap (two or three drops to a small bowl of water) through a new pen a few times, followed by water only. Step one is effective at removing manufacturing oils that can tend to make the ink less than enthusiastic in heading from the converter to the nib, and step two removes the traces of the detergent you've used...which tends to have the opposite, diuretic effect.

IMPORTANT SERVICE NOTE: Every nib that ships from His Nibs is closely examined under high magnification and tuned or adjusted if needed. About 85% of modern nibs need some adjustment out-of-the-box from the manufacturer for an optimal writing experience. Most commonly, the tines of the nib are misaligned -- which would cause scratchiness at the minimum; the slit between the tines is partially or fully closed -- which would starve the nib of ink and at best cause skipping; or the slit between the tines is too wide -- which will either again cause skipping, or conversely, flooding. There are other factors  -- such as separation of the nib from the feed -- that are inspected and repaired before any pen leaves the Palace.

The only 100% guarantee of course comes when the pen is actually filled with ink and written with for the first time, but our pre-shipping inspections and tunings have eliminated 99.99999 (my finger is getting tired) of the frustrations that a customer experiences when first using a new fountain pen. Although this can be time-consuming on occasion, it affords our customers a much more pleasant experience when receiving a fountain pen from His Nibs -- and saves us the frustration of dealing with returns!

Warranties and returns

If an item proves to be defective, in most cases the manufacturer's warranty will apply. However, please email us first so that we can determine the easiest way to resolve the problem to your satisfaction. In the case of fountain pens -- which are a bit more individualistic than other writing instruments -- what may at first appear to be a defect (hard starting or poor flow for example), can in almost all cases be resolved with a few simple 'tweaks' to the nib, which we'll be happy to guide you through or perhaps suggest returning to us for adjustment.

Should you wish to return a non-defective item within 3 days of receipt because it doesn't suit you for some reason, again please email us and we'll arrange an exchange, credit or refund (minus any shipping/insurance charges), if the item is returned in an 'as new' condition. If you've dipped a fountain pen to try its writing characteristics, kindly clean off any ink residue prior to shipping -- to save us both a nasty surprise .

We want you to be happy with your purchase from HisNibs.com and hope to have you join the ranks of our many long-term, repeat customers!
