Known for their unique designs and innovative ideas, Monteverde USA® is proud to announce a redesign of a classic, the Strata™ collection. Originally introduced in the mid 2000’s, Strata™ delighted the pen industry, with its slim design, reliability, and dynamic use of color.
Utilizing the same design but with a vibrant and contemporary flair, each Strata™ is carefully machined to perfection before it is dipped in high-quality metallic lacquer. Hand assembled, each pen comes fitted with polished chrome accents and completed with a 3 tiered cap-top for a unique and stunning finish. The long, sweeping clip is easy to use and adorned with the famous Monteverde® mountains logo along the top, while the end of the cap-top displays the same logo encapsulated in black resin for contrast.
The collection name is tastefully printed in black lettering can be found on the backside of the fountain pen mid-band. The fountain pen un-screws by twisting the cap top counter clockwise while securely holding onto the barrel below.
Hand polished, the Strata™ collection is available in a selection of rich metallic sheens. Beyond being functional, the Strata™ collection is gorgeous without being ostentatious, slim and sleek, ideal for travel or as a daily writer. Each Strata™ pen is housed in a slim gift box.
This metallic blue pen comes with a standard international converter and an ink cartridge. The Monteverde Strata is offered with your choice of a reliable, smooth-writing German made JoWo #6 silver steel nib in extra-fine, fine, medium, broad, 1.1mm stub, or the new JoWo silver Omniflex flexible steel nib for variation in line width.
Our note about the JoWo Omniflex nib: This flex nib will allow you to experience more bounce and softness than writing with conventional nibs. You can achieve some line variation with a little additional downward pressure, to a point. We recommend flexing the nib to about twice the line width that you would see without using any pressure. Please take care to avoid pressing too hard on the nib, as over-flexing could prevent the tines from returning fully to their original position and decrease or stop your ink flow.
