Monteverde Impressa

On Amazon for $26. Normal street price $40 - $50.
Pretty universally touted as a very nice item. Look up reviews on uTube via the pens name on uTubeís search thing. Matt Armstrong particularly liked it.

Gunmetal barrel and cap with deep red clip, band, etc. Black nib. Spring clip. Top of cap is square which tapers to standard round. Includes a converter. Takes Standard Universal converter and cartridges.

Donít know why itís discounted. Amazon has the other colors for pretty much retail. This one...with a medium nib...is much less. Whatever the reason...Twenty Six Bucks? I ordered one immediately.

Sounds and looks like what used to be the norm for fountain pens 50 years ago - well made, good looking, good writing WRITING instruments! Back then you bought a pen to USE, not collect ! Sounds like you've found a keeper!! Twisted Evil

If you can find a bottle, Omas's Vespuci Red. Omas sadly doesn't produce inks anymore but this Red is worth looking for! Twisted Evil

Iíll keep my eyes open. But apparently the Vespucci Red was a Ltd Ed ink sold together with Omas A. Vespucci fountain pen(s). So...
