Form, fashion, and function are the key to a great writing experience. The designers at Monteverde took this principle, put it to practice, and are happy to present the Essenza collection, a contemporary recreation of an old Monteverde classic. Hand-crafted from European grade acrylic resins and featuring an alluring multi-faceted body and cap, each writing instrument is unique. Displaying a variety of striking marble-like shades, a chrome clip, band, and grip are added to enhance the elegance of each writing instrument, with the Monteverde logo beautifully printed along the band. Each fountain pen cap is threaded, for a secure closure whether in your pocket or briefcase.
This fountain pen is offered with a reliable, smooth-writing German made JoWo #6 silver steel nib in your choice of extra-fine, fine, or medium. It fills via standard international ink cartridges or converter (included).
We do our best to photograph the pens to show how they will appear in person, but due to the nature of the material, expect some variation in the pattern from what you see here.
