Handmade European grade acrylic resin makes up the Monteverde Prima’s cap and barrel. Accented with gleaming chrome, its sleek shape results in a pen that is ergonomically balanced and a joy to own. This Prima fountain pen features an orange swirly acrylic resin. It has a #6 stainless steel nib to complement the silver trim, and fills via standard international ink cartridges or converter (included).
We are excited to exclusively offer this pen with a German-made nib from Bock. For over 75 years Bock has been manufacturing parts for fine writing instruments and we’re confident that you’ll love how these nibs enhance your writing experience! The Bock nibs do not have an imprint to note the nib size.
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.
