"Received the package today. Exactly what
I was hoping for. Feels good in the hand and writes effortlessly.
"Norman, I received my pens last week. I really like both the
Crocodile Outre, and the
Monteverde Invincia Stealth. They write beautifully and are great to
have on the road with me. Great pens and great value. As always,
thank you my friend."
"The Invincia Stealth is EXACTLY what I was
looking for in a pen. Thanks so much for your recommendation too!! I love the
everything about it! The weight, the feel, the way it writes, and it's looks! I
had done some reading about the Stealth and I saw a few complaints about a
posting issue. Absolutely none here though. I am so happy! Thanks again for
everything! I will definitely recommend you to anyone that inquires about the
pen! Excellent service all the way around, extremely prompt, and incredibly
"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."
MV41192 – Monteverde® Invincia™ Color Fusion Ink*Ball, Black Stealth
The new Invincia Titanium Collection offers two versions, the Titanium and the Stealth, 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. Both 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.
... 'Invincia' on the back side.
The Titanium version has a striking combination of a black-braided carbon fiber barrel, paired with a titanium-coated cap. It's quite a stunning look. The black clip, capband and barrel-end match perfectly with the black section and nib when the cap is removed.
The Stealth version has an 'under the radar' take on the modern fountain pen. The entire pen is in black with the cap, barrel, clip and trim all being specially coated with 3 layers of durable black lacquer. The fountain pen nib is also in black with a flexible stainless steel nib coated with titanium for extreme durability.
If you were a pen-carrying Ninja, this would be the pen for you. Personally, I can't stop visualizing James Bond each time I pick up this pen (Sean Connery, of course). But even if you don't fantasize about being 007, carrying the Stealth just makes one feel more suave somehow.
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 (outside of the pen!), 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 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!

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.
