"I just wanted to let you know that I received the package within a couple of
days (well before my departure date). The black stub nib is fantastic - fits on
the stealth beautifully. I didn't have any issues replacing the existing nib. I
also loved the colours of the PR inks. My husband keeps asking me how many ink
bottles and pens do I have and the answer is always the same, "not enough"! :)"
"Hi Norman, Thank you again for such
professional service - delighted with my new Monteverde fountain pen. Already
finding great enjoyment in writing with this wonderful and absolutely fine
looking instrument. Shall definitely follow your informative news updates and
guides. May your business continue to prosper and grow!"
"Thank you so much for the wonderful recommendation for
the MV41172 - Black &
White. It arrived in a very timely fashion. My husband opened it on our
anniversary and inked it right away...Pat has found a new love! Not that he
doesn't love his other pens, he just can't get over how enjoyable the pen it to
use. You really hit the nail on the head when recommending this gem."
When art and technology are blended in perfect symbiosis, the result is a pen of extremes in perfect balance, the MONTEVERDE® INVINCIA™. The Collection is as formal as a ballroom dance, yet as relaxed as a well-worn pair of jeans. It's perfect for him, and perfect for her.
There are four finishes classic finishes that contrast and compliment each other perfectly: Rose Gold/Grey Carbon Fiber; the spectacular Mirror Chrome, the sophisticated Black Tie Carbon Fiber, and the newest, Black & White, which departs from its brethren with a gorgeous pearl-like resin body. The pen measures 5-3/8" capped and 5-3/4" posted. INVINCIA™ fountain pens come with an ink converter for bottled ink and a black ink cartridge. 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.
As of July, 2007, the Invincia fountain pen (all models), has been re-designed with a larger nib! The Invincia has always been an oversized pen -- with an undersized nib. Monteverde has listened to its customers and has retro-fitted the model with a new section, feed and the new large nib first exhibited by the Mega M3 combo pen. The pen now measures a full 6" with its cap posted, and the overall look of the pen is now much more in balance. As of 2009, all Invincia pens are now available with your choice of fine, medium or broad nib.
So, as you look at the other, older photos on this page, please visualize each model with the larger nib...and yes, the Rose Gold gets an updated, larger two-toned nib as well.

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!
