Monteverde's expansive Artista line of innovative pen designs continues with the Stripes family of pens. Like the original transparent, demonstrator Artista pens, these are mid-sized writers -- comfortable for both small and large hands. The fountain pen and rollerball both measure 5" capped, and 6" with the cap posted. The ballpoint comes in at 5-1/2".                                                              

                                    

Using a new, exclusive Laminata™ process, specially formulated liquid acrylic resins are poured layer-upon-layer. Each layer is required to cure before the next layer is added. Monteverde’s exclusive Laminata™ technique takes far more time compared to the previous “Cut & Glue” method -- but the results speak for themselves.



Once all of the acrylic layers have cured, the Laminata™ acrylic slab is hand-cut, hand-lathed, and hand-drilled. The pens are then hand-polished to a gorgeous  -- and translucent luster.

 

Using a small LED light in -- or behind -- the cap, gives an idea of this translucence, 

 

 

         

          

 

The fountain pen sports a medium nib, and carries on the demonstrator's use of a clear feed.

There are no guarantees that this pristine appearance will survive the first contact with ink however!

      


 

 

 

 

                 

 

Unscrewing the barrel from the section reveals a full-sized piston converter for bottled ink, and the pen will also take international-style ink cartridges, such as those from Private Reserve.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


The rollerball versions are equipped with Monteverde’s exclusive Perma Seal™ cap, designed with a small o-ring that extends the life of refills by preventing drying, and if desired, allows for the same permanent marker refills that are used in the Artista Perma (designed to write on virtually anything, such as plastic, glass, leather, textiles...and much more).

 

The ballpoint pen is actually a multifunction writing instrument as well. Using Parker-style refills, you can convert it to a gel pen or capless rollerball.


 

 

 

 

 

 

Each pen comes gift boxed, and includes Monteverde's Lifetime Limited Warranty.

 

              

IMPORTANT SERVICE NOTE: Every nib that ships from His Nibs is closely examined under high magnification and tuned or adjusted if needed. About 85% of modern nibs need some adjustment out-of-the-box from the manufacturer for an optimal writing experience. Most commonly, the tines of the nib are misaligned -- which would cause scratchiness at the minimum; the slit between the tines is partially or fully closed -- which would starve the nib of ink and at best cause skipping; or the slit between the tines is too wide -- which will either again cause skipping, or conversely, flooding. There are other factors  -- such as separation of the nib from the feed -- that are inspected and repaired before any pen leaves the Palace.

The only 100% guarantee of course comes when the pen is actually filled with ink and written with for the first time, but our pre-shipping inspections and tunings have eliminated 99.99999 (my finger is getting tired) of the frustrations that a customer experiences when first using a new fountain pen. Although this can be time-consuming on occasion, it affords our customers a much more pleasant experience when receiving a fountain pen from His Nibs -- and saves us the frustration of dealing with returns!

Warranties and returns

If an item proves to be defective, in most cases the manufacturer's warranty will apply. However, please email us first so that we can determine the easiest way to resolve the problem to your satisfaction. In the case of fountain pens -- which are a bit more individualistic than other writing instruments -- what may at first appear to be a defect (hard starting or poor flow for example), can in almost all cases be resolved with a few simple 'tweaks' to the nib, which we'll be happy to guide you through or perhaps suggest returning to us for adjustment.

Should you wish to return a non-defective item within 3 days of receipt because it doesn't suit you for some reason, again please email us and we'll arrange an exchange, credit or refund (minus any shipping/insurance charges), if the item is returned in an 'as new' condition. If you've dipped a fountain pen to try its writing characteristics, kindly clean off any ink residue prior to shipping -- to save us both a nasty surprise .

We want you to be happy with your purchase from HisNibs.com and hope to have you join the ranks of our many long-term, repeat customers!
