I recently received this pen as a gift. The pen looks great with nice visual depth in the resin. It's a medium sized pen of medium weight with a comfortable, non slippery section.
I filled mine with Diamine Emerald using the included convertor to match the pen color. The fine nib started right up with a nice flow and after a couple days of using became very smooth (I firmly believe fountain pen nibs need a break in period for a persons individual writing style).
Quality is very good and I will be looking to buy other colors of this particular pen.

I own two and occasionally I have to barely twist the converter
to get ink flow but that's after having not used them awhile.
I believe owning fountain Pens is a wonderful things .Having said this They are like owning a pipe or a fire place...Pipes give joy to pipe smokers and who doesn't love a fire place . constantly tending to them is part of the joy ..If Tending to pens isn"t your thing get a ball point or rollerball

I got this pen in the stub nib and I must say I enjoy using it very much! It is fun to write with and the nib is very smooth! I also highly recommend Pen Chalet for their customer service! You can't beat it!

This is beautiful writing instrument, and certainly value for the price. Runs a little dry, but perhaps it will improve as I use it more.

Nice weight. But the EF is more like a F-M on a Pilot. And seems to write thicker than an EF Lamy. It's very pretty though.

This is a beautiful pen. I ordered the tiger eye color with a 1.1 mm stub nib. There is a lot of the deep luminescent-like luster in the pen material. The pen writes well with good line variation from the stub nib. It is a little drier writer than some of my others, but very acceptable. Writes smoothly and consistently.

A beautiful, well-balanced fountain pen. Medium Nib (steel) could be a trifle 'broader' but excellent and crisp writing.

This is my first pen from Monteverde and I had heard mixed reviews but, at the price Pen Chalet had it for, I decided that, even if it wasn't a great pen, it wasn't a major investment.

I'm thrilled to say that the pen will become my daily workhorse. The nib floats beautifully and smoothly across the paper (I use Rhodia books so the paper quality helps with the writing experience), holds a substantial amount of ink in its included converter, and the thickness of the body fits nicely in my hands.

One note - if you have large hands, you'll probably want to use this pen with the cap posted or it may be just a bit too short. That does make it just a tiny bit top-heavy but not enough to be a real detriment - especially once there's ink in the pen. Also, holding the pen an additional 1/4" higher seems to resolve the weight of the posted cap.

These are really lovely pens--only a bit below my Duofold on writing smoothness and a much more affordable alternative. The chrome trim begs to be changed for aesthetic purposes, but the functionality is excellent.
