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 fills via standard international ink cartridges or converter (included). It is now offered with your choice of a reliable, smooth-writing German made JoWo #6 silver steel nib in extra-fine, fine, medium, 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.

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.
