"Hello Norman, I just wanted to thank you for my invincia stealth pen, the ink and the personalized note. The note made this shopping experience one of my favorites and I will now be ordering from your site whenever I am in need of a new pen or ink."
Hi Norman, Just wanted to let you know I got the
pens in the mail on Monday, and they are fantastic! I brought the Invincia
Spitfire Red and 717i Demonstrator (both filled
with Monteverde Blue) to work with me
Tuesday, and the Invincia Stealth Black and 78G
Forest Green "Medium"/Fine (filled with Parker Blue-Black and Monteverde
Blue respectively), and they have all been magnificent! As you say in your
demo video, the Dollar 717i is a very "fun" pen, especially the
demonstrator. I thought they might have some trouble on the extremely cheap
copy paper we buy at work by the truckload, but they've all performed
flawlessly so far -- although I have noticed that in general ink takes a
little longer to dry on Post-It notes, no matter the pen... Maybe it is the
kind of paper they use? Who knows. Anyway, just wanted to let you know
you've got another satisfied customer, and I won't hesitate to do business
with you again in the future for sure. The handwritten "wax"-sealed note was
a nice touch as well, you hardly see handwritten notes in packages anymore
(forget "wax"-sealed!) :) Thanks much,
"Please sent me the
Avenger Yellow and Thunderbird Blue.
Several months ago a purchase the Invincia Black Stealth FP and I just felt
in love with this pen. I now have several FP in my collection from all
price ranges and brands but I use my Black Stealth FP on a daily basis. Now
I want to increase my collection of the Monteverde color fusion fountain
pens to eventually have all the colors available."
"Hi, Norman! As a writer, I have many
pens in my collection from all price ranges and brands. This is the first time
I've purchased an Monteverde writing instrument and must say I am very much in
love with the Invincia Color Fusion Stealth broad nib fountain pen. I have
been in the market for a new fountain pen for some time and had been looking
at this particular Invincia for a good while now, but never found the
information to help me decide to buy it...that is until I found your website.
The review and video demonstration posted on your website answered my
questions and made the decision easy. Thank you so very much! Also, the
Private Reserve Gray Flannel ink was exactly what I was
looking for! From now on when in the market for a new pen, I shall be buying
from you! Plus the fact you include a personal note in the order makes it one
of the better shopping experiences I've had in a long time. And may I say
you've the best penmanship I've come across in a while!"
"Hi Norman, I received my order, the Monteverde
Color Fusion (Black Stealth) today, and I must say, I love this
pen! It is definitely a class act! Silky smooth, very comfortable in
the hand, and comparable to anything I have in my poor collection of fountain
pens! I continue to be amazed at the quality of your offerings! I have run low
of words to use in praising your site, and the excellence of service you supply
to your customers. The "fine touches" you provide (the hand-written notes, the
fine tuning of the nibs, ect.) are exceptional in this day and age!!"
"I would like to take this
opportunity to thank you very much for the Invincia Stealth FP. It is a
wonderful pen, and I did NOT have any problem using the “La Reine Mauve”
Noodlers ink; the ink was drying up on the other FPs that I purchased with the
competition. Thank you for the personalized note you sent me with the pen; It
was a very nice touch."
"Dear Norman: I received the pens yesterday! they
look excellent! As you kindly said, they conform a beautiful collection all
together. I dive at once on the whole bunch, touching, feeling and looking
closely at every detail and characteristics of every pen. Let me remark, from
the beginning, the severe beauty of the Stealth, the baroque brilliancy of the
Jinhao and the comfort of the
Seven Horses. Thank you very much for all, you
were of great help and everything went so smooth. We will surely keep in
contact. Best Regards from Spain!"
"I got my pen today when I went downstairs for
something else....I've cleaned the nib as you advised and to my amazement, the
pen took the ink so much better than when I would fill it without rinsing it
first. I never thought of needing to do that brand new pens! I'm still a bit new
to using fountain pens so I appreciate that tip from your web site. The pen
writes beautifully! I've never had a Monte Verde pen before now. I'll be
ordering more of them as I'm able."
Monteverde® Invincia™ Color Fusion Collection
Monteverde® introduces the new concept of “Color Fusion” series to the ever popular Invincia™ pen line. It all started with the Black Stealth Invincia™, a pen in all black with sophistication that definitely gets noticed and yet remains understated as it flies “under the radar”. The 3 layers of durable black lacquer create depth and brilliance with the barrel, clip and trim all in matching black. The fountain pen even has a new and unique black nib that is titanium-coated stainless steel for extreme durability yet remains flexible.
To live up to the name “Color Fusion”, the pen series would of course have to soar to new heights with more brilliant color schemes being introduced. The two new exhilarating colors that are ready for take-off now are Spitfire Red and Avenger Yellow. Your passion for flash, flair and flight are sure to be excited by the new Color Fusion concept. The sophistication of the trim, clip and nib in stark black contrasted with that of the barrel and cap in brilliant red or vibrant yellow is revolutionary just as was man’s ability for flight itself. So whether you wish to go incognito or fly with more flair, there is a new Invincia™ Color Fusion that promises a great flight.
Invincia™ Color Fusion pens are available in twist-action ballpoints, rollerballs, and fountain pens with either Fine, Medium or Broad nibs that are filled by either ink cartridges or ink converters.
The new Invincia Color Fusion Collection offers four new versions -- joining the Stealth -- Avenger Yellow, Skyhawk White, Spitfire Red and Thunderbird Blue, which bring new high-tech materials to the classic styling of the iconic Invincia line of pens. These full-sized fountain pens measure 5-3/8" capped, 6-3/8" posted and 5" with cap held aside. Being of metal construction, they have a pleasing heft in the hand.
No, your eyes are not deceiving you. All fountain pen models have black steel nibs, coated with titanium for extreme durability, and are available in B, M, F or the new stub sizes. I've found that the new, large Monteverde nibs run about a size smaller than typical western nibs. Hence, I'd classify the B nib as a typical medium, the M as a fine and the F as an x-fine. The stub is a 1.1 mm medium. Please specify the nib size you'd like, by letter or 'stub' only, to avoid confusion when ordering.
The fountain pens and rollerballs have screw off caps but post as slip-ons. If you're like me, and rarely post a cap, you'll find the Invincia plenty long enough without posting for comfortable writing.
The cap band on both models sports 'Monteverde USA' on the clip side...and 'Invincia' on the back side.
The fountain pens come with a piston converter for bottled ink...but as with all new pens, I recommend to run a dilute solution of dishwashing soap (two or three drops to a small bowl of water) through a new converter a few times, followed by water only. Step one is effective at removing manufacturing oils that can tend to make the ink less than enthusiastic in heading from the converter to the nib, and step two removes the traces of the detergent you've used...which tends to have the opposite, diuretic effect. The pen will also take International-style cartridges, such as those from Private Reserve. The Monteverde gift box and warranty are included.
Although I've focused on the fountain pens of the Invincia Titanium collection, the pens are also available in equally impressive ballpoint and rollerball and the newest Ink*Ball versions.
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!
