Montegrappa presents its first special edition of the ZERO collection, Meteor Shower. This work of art coincides with the peak season of shooting stars and Montegrappite meteor shower. Thanks to the improvement of the new handmade resin and refined finishes at a maximum expression, you will not find two exactly the same pieces. The fountain pen features a ruthenium-plated 14-karat gold nib along with ultra-black ruthenium trim. Limited edition of 300 pieces.
The Montegrapps is my favorite Italian fountain pen. Very well made and the nib is fantastic - writes well right out of the box- no issues at all. I got the medium nib.
I use it with the Diamine inks.
Wet nib, true to a western medium, writes like a dream - Totally recommended.
Great service and very fast shipping by Iguana Sell !!!
Excellent Pen. Great nib and ink flow. Striking Finish.
Only giving 4 stars because I have some genuinely 5 star pens and while this is excellent I think the 1930 Extra and some of my Visconti's are superior. Nonetheless its great - very good nib with a bit of feedback. It's sounds "musical" on the page and makes the writing expericence feel quite tactile. Nice nedium wet line (from a medium) - perfect. Really accentuates shading in a good ink. Very comfortable body shape though slim. More comfortable than I thought it might be. The finish is striking (not over the top) though perhaps I prefer Montegrappa's celluloid finishes. Still this is a great pen and it is lovely to write with. I recommend it.
Colours are muted and the pen is light in weight ,it is not easy to write.I do not rate this pen highly.
