Customer Reviews

Exclusive Momento Zero
I purchased the dark red Exclusive Momento and it's beautiful! I wish it were slightly lighter in color as I already have beautiful black Sailors and this is close in depth. It pairs beautifully with Diamine's Red Dragon and writes like a dream because Leonardo tunes the nibs before they ship. Can't wait for the next Exclusive Moment Zero.

Momento Zero
Every Leonardo fountain pen I have purchased from PenChalet is beautiful. When I first heard of Leonardo pens, I didn’t like them. I thought that any pen manufacturer that gives a pen such a long name must be of poor quality. I buy all my pens from PenChalet and I began noticing a lot of Leonardo pens, they were advertising. So, I bought one. I was amazed at how nice these pens are. I paid less than 150 dollars for each pen. Not only are they beautiful pens, they are also well built.

I can't stop looking at this pen. This acrylic is just absolutely stunning. And the craftsmanship is fantastic. You can't see the seam between the section and the barrel at all. The pen feels really great in my hand. The finish is so smooth. I'm usually a broad nib person but decided to get a medium. It writes a little on the broad side which is perfect. I paired it with Diamine Arctic Blue which matches extremely well. I bought Colorverse Gravity Wave for this also but not tried it yet. If you can get your hands on one of these with the Blue Hawaii acrylic grab it before it's gone. I love this pen. It's also a super value.

Beautiful pen, nice size and super smooth steel nib. I am a gold nib girl but this steel nib convinced me that steel nibs can be equally smooth. Pen Chalet customer service is excellent!

Momento Zero Grande
Awesome pen. I thought it would be too big since I love the size of the normal Leonardo. But to my amazement I love the size and the Sands color is amazing! Great pen. Great writer.

Version black mate, gold, with medium nib. As all Leonardo fountain pens this one is also good writer. Writes very wet and smooth. Black mate color isn't truly black, rather very dark brown.

The pen is striking to look at and well constructed. The moderate price is surprising because it looks more expensive that what it cost.

Momento Zero
This is my third momento zero and the Pietra Marina is a great looking resin. As others have commented it is darker in person than most of the pictures you see online. Bock nib worked well out of the box and the usual good craftsmanship. My other two Zero's have super smooth threads but unfortunately this one does not, despite using some silicone grease. Just a bit coarse or grindy. On the other hand, the cap bands on this one are flush to the body unlike my other two which stick out a bit on one side. Perhaps the mark of a handmade product. But overall these are a good value for an Italian pen with lovely materials.

Furore
I like the appointments of the pen, including a nice sized nib. However, I prefer an medium nib and the Furore's medium nib is closer to a fine than a true medium. The pen balances well in the hand without posting. It writes well, no skips, etc., but it does write fairly dry. Personally I prefer a wetter line.

I got it in Passion Red, and it looks good, but I think I would have liked it better in one of the other colors. For the price it's a good pen pen if you're fine with a thinner medium and don't mind a nib that writes moderately dry.

What a gorgeous pen this Momento is! Talk about eye candy and not expensive, either. Pen Chalet was quick to get the pen on its way to me. I will definitely buy from them again!

Momento Zero
I bought for my birthday the Leonardo Momento Zero Pietra Marina fitted with an extra-fine nib.
The fountain pen is really beautiful and the nib is great, wet, soft. It glides on the paper easily. I chose the Sailor Jentle Sky High ink and I enjoy writing with my fountain pen. A good price for an excellent fountain pen. Very happy.

Exclusive Momento Zero
Beautiful pen that writes wonderfully. I have the Orange/Matte Black version, and it is stunning. The resin is deep and rich in appearance. One thing that isn't mentioned in the video review is that the pen is a captured converter. To fill, unscrew the cap on the end of the barrel to expose the twist knob. No need to unscrew the section to expose the converter (unless you prefer to fill the converter with a syringe). The nib is incredibly smooth, and once you do an initial flush/cleaning it writes without skips or misses. I regularly get compliments on the pen, and ended up getting a second as it is a bargain at the Pen Chalet prices. It's hard to find a captured converter pen in this price range. I can't wait for other offerings from Leonardo.

Exclusive Momento Zero
An amazing pen. The acrylic has beautiful depth, the finish is perfect, and the ruthenium trim is flawless. The nib is great right out of the box and the fine writes as an XXF on the reverse. Not a big fan of captive converters (they should have knurled the knob) but you can also unscrew the section and fill it regular style. The Blue Hawaii is a perfect match for blue-black ink. Style is reminiscent of a wartime Conway Stewart just in a more modern size.

This pen is amazing. The steel nib is smooth and has a slight bounce. The pen body itself is a nice color. The converter that comes with it is huge, and the pen is girth-y and nice to hold. On rare occasions it does have a hard start though, but I'm very happy overall.

This is my third Leonardo pen. The workmanship and style is great. I have the steel nib in fine and find it a very smooth and wet pen .

While maybe not my favorite pen, it’s one I will keep inked for regular use. The resin is beautiful.

Stunning pen! Great colors in the resin and is such a pleasure to look at. The nib (I got a medium) tends to run dry and has an occasional hard start. Think I’ll try a wetter ink and see if this changes.

I just got the Leonardo Momento Zero in Pietra Marina. I is one of the best looking pens I own. The polish and the marbling are so unique and beautiful. This is my second Momento Zero. The nibs are as good as gold nibs. I got an extra fine and I usually only use fine but this extra fine is the smoothest extra fine I have ever used. What a great pen for the price. You cannot get a better pen for the price.
