A great pen for the price. I usually stick with gold nibs, but this steel nib even has enough flex to give some nice line variation. A bit scratchy so you feel the paper. And it is really striking looking.

I was thrilled that the Prima lives on! The orange and black is very striking. Writes beautifully. Get one for yourself. Great service at Pen Chalet!

This pen writes very well and has a good size. It is the best Yafa pen I have purchased.

Lightweight pen. The swirls are more yellow than green, but it still looks nice. The nib is huge in comparison to the pen, but I like that. The stub nib I got was wet and smooth but not a firehose. It even had a fair bit of flex, which was surprising. The included threaded converter is great - all converters should be threaded. It takes standard international cartridges, and includes one blue and one black cartridge. The box is stunning. This pen seems like it should cost $120, but I paid nowhere near that.

Purchased 2 Monteverda Prima Fountain Pens and I just love them. Had a question about my order and Ron quickly responded and handled my question. Also purchased 3 bottles of ink which the colors much nicer than the pictures. Looking forward to my next purchase. Thanks for the excellent service.

I received the Monteverde Prima yesterday, as expected the pen looks fine, the pen cam in a beautiful green leather case, inside the box was the instruction and warranty card along with a small plastic bag with two in refill cartridges. Unfortunately one of the cartridges was dry, the other however went right into the pen and immediately I started to try it, the pen is very light, the green color is vivid and as the light hits it gives a different shine to the green that is very hypnotizing, the ink flowed very smoothly no scratching or delay in the fluidity of the ink. For being my first fountain pen I am very satisfied with my purchase.

This pen is fantastic. With the right paper it glides over the surface with almost no effort. A pleasure to use and if you get writer's cramp with it, you're just writing wrong.

Beautiful pen but the nib is not great. This is my first experience with a stub nib, so perhaps I am expecting too much, but I encounter three problems when using it. First, it rarely starts right away. Second, it is pretty dry, so if I write with a little bit of speed, it starts skipping. Sometimes it even railroads on the down stroke (I am not applying much pressure at all so this is just the dryness, not over-flexing of the tines). Last, the tines are not evenly cut (one side is wider than the other). This is more a QC issue and I am not sure if it effects performance, but it is a little bothersome visually. The rest of the pen is really great. Color and design are beautiful, weight is good, and the balance feels right. Just wish the nib performed better. For the price though, I think it is worth getting, then spending a little more on a good #6 nib, switching it out, and then having a pet that is both beautiful and well-performing... (assuming the feed is not the culprit ).

Quite honestly, I'd read mixed reviews for the Monteverde Prima fountain pen. However, I found the purple & white swirl to be irresistible and bought it with my fingers crossed. I got the 1.1 mm stub. Well, it’s a fabulous pen and probably among my top five all-time favorites. It writes beautifully, is comfortable for short or long writing sessions, and has never given me any kind of problem. I can confidently recommend this pen and, of course, Pen Chalet who quickly and professional fulfilled my order.

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.
