I've been using mine for a few weeks now. No squeaking using Sailor Jentle Blue Black ink. I like it overall, but wish the cap would post. It seems like it should but I can feel something push back when I try. It's a heavy cap anyway, so I'm fine with using it unposted.
Got mine a few days ago. I filled it with Lamy Green, having forgotten to clean it first (I guess I've gotten spoiled by Japanese pens that work out-of-the-box) and it skipped very badly. I cleaned it by filling it with slightly soapy water a few times, follows by rinsing it with water several times. I then filled it with Private Reserve ink since I remembered it to be unusually wet but the pen still skips, but far less than it did at first. I'm hoping it will improve with use.
It sure is pretty though. Both the all-over design, the carbon fibre (which my eyes seem to have trouble focusing on), the sheer blackness of the pen and the contrast with the colour of the cap. Capping it feels weird though - there seems to be some issue with the threading but I can't tell what. The black laquer is also already coming off the threads.

The skipping does become less prevalent with more use, at least that was the case with mine.
The quality of this pen far surpasses that of the Levenger L Tech and Pilot Vanishing Point I had purchased here on Massdrop.
I absolutely love it!

That is high praise, @dleblanc! Glad you're enjoying this, feel free to post a writing sample here.
My rollerball just showed up. ***Canadian buyers be warned, I just got dinged with a $20 GST/HST/Handling charge, even though it was shipped USPS.*** This is my second Invincia drop, first was the Black Tie fountain. I am just as happy with this as I was the Black Tie. Great construction and quality for the price. The rollerball is insanely smooth, my only complaint is the point section is very thin, so if you like gripping a thinker pen this is certainly not for you. The box card and the website say to use Monteverde or Parker G22 refills, but after a few quick searches I can't seem to find them retail online (at least in Canada anyhow). Anybody have a lead on where I can buy rollerball refills for this guy? G22 turned up nothing on Amazon.

I didn't get dinged as a Canadian buyer. What I found was that in Canada, it's like a roulette with the taxes and stuff. Sometimes they charge you, sometimes they don't. Depends on if you get lucky or not.
I received my pen about a week ago. Opened it up and noticed it has some scratches on the cap. Further, the carbon fiber section is peeling below the cap (think of an object with shrink wrap and it starts to peel). The pen is quite disappointing compared to another Monteverde Invincia Deluxe pen that I own (outside of Massdrop).

Hi @AlanPark -- I'm sorry to hear that, did you contact our Support team about that?
We can help you with a warranty claim if you'd like. https://www.massdrop.com/support
PS - Sorry for the slow reply, I missed this one in the middle of the other comments.
JonasHeineman
Hi Jonas, No I did not contact the support team. I bought this pen as a gift for a friend and due to urgency, I gave the pen as-is. No worries on the late reply. I was just trying to warn others.
Regards
I received mine earlier this week. I noticed the nib also "squeaks"/a little scratchy only when doing upstrokes to the right, but after a few days it got a little smoother. I'm using a J. Herbin blue ink and it's writing very wet on a fine nib (though that is probably my fault for not being patient enough to let my pen dry more than an hour after cleaning it with water). Other than that I really like the pen and can't wait to try another ink with it.
Got mine today. I found that I did not like the ink cartridges but I I dunno what ink to get for it haha.

noodlers is nice also pilot iroshizuku ink wise
Mine arrived today. Inked it up with some Waterman Inspired Blue, which was maybe not the best choice. It's a very dry writer and with that ink it actually squeaks. I think that I'll give it a go with some Noodler's Bernanke Blue instead.
Overall, I like its appearance. It fits my ham-fisted hands very well, is nicely balanced for me and weighs enough so that I don't feel like I'm pushing a feather around the page.
EDIT: According to Goulet Pens, the Invincia Titanium has been discontinued by Monteverde. If you want one, I guess you'd better get it now. Goulet has them for $80 and I see a few on Amazon for a couple of bucks more.
DrewDunn
I just received mine as well. I'm using one of the cartridges that it came with and I found that mine squeaks while writing as well. Please let me know if the squeaking stops with the Noodler's ink.
Cheward
It doesn't squeak with the Noodler's ink.
An exciting update! We’re happy to report that all of the orders have been shipped out from our warehouse and are now on the way to you! Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to get into the shipper's system and start updating.
If there’s anything else we can do to make your Massdrop experience better, feel free to contact us via “Contact Support” button in your transaction page (https://www.massdrop.com/transactions).
Great news group! The vendor has let us know that the group's order was picked up and is on its way to our warehouse now. Based on the tracking provided these are scheduled to come in 3/2. Our warehouse team has been forwarded tracking info and will be standing by, ready to get these packed up and turned around as soon as they come in.
Sometimes shipments get delayed en route, not to worry as we will keep the group posted throughout the process and notify you all if anything causes delay.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 3/3 or sooner if something comes up.
HassanS
Glad to hear! Midterms would be happening while I wait for my pen, a nice distraction to keep my mind off of it lol.
Also disappointed I barely missed this one. Please try to redrop if possible.
Thanks again for joining the drop with the community. We submitted the group’s order with the vendor for the Monteverde Invincia Titanium Fountain Pen shortly after the drop ended and they have begun preparing it for shipment.
Once the group’s order is ready at the vendor’s location, they will send the bulk shipment to our fulfillment center where we’ll break it up into individual orders and ship them off to you as soon as possible.
The moment we receive confirmation regarding the shipping schedule from the vendor, we will provide you all with updated information on the status of your package.
Expect an update from us on 2/25 or sooner.
I'd also like in on this one if it's possible. Because there was no mention of limiting the drop to 140 orders I waited to place mine only to come back to find the drop closed.
Pretty please Massdrop could you reopen the drop? If it is reopened I will buy the pen for sure and I figure a few others.

For @jefflowyz @Natator13 @TedPot @vino and anyone who missed out:
This drop ended because all available stock was purchased by members very quickly. There were 100 total units available for this drop, which seemed like plenty for everyone. However, the writing community has grown very quickly in recent weeks and this drop moved fast at the end.
When we know that demand will heavily outweigh supply, we post a note in the first section so that everyone is aware. That was not expected to be the case here, so I didn't post a note - it was my mistake, and I apologize to those who didn't get a chance to join.
Unfortunately, we don't anticipate that any more units of this pen will be available soon. I will ask the vendor if there's any way to make more available, but I am not expecting a 'yes' on that.
If you click the Request button on this page, you'll find out first about any future re-launch.
I thought I saw 5 days? And now unavailable? What on earth
I was possibly a few hours from buying it but the drop just closed even though it said it had 4 days left. Seriously, what the heck?
Are you kidding me? I waited for a response regarding the stub nib while knowing I have 4 more days! and now the drop is closed? whats going on? if it was limited quantities why not mention that???!?!?!
Vino
Same thing happened to me! Going on amazon just to compare prices... Not expecting good news from there:/
I needed a pen asap, this one seemed the one.
How come the drop ended early? I was waiting to get home to buy it and now I lost my chance :(
Natator13
Not sure, my guess is limited quantities.
I am getting on this drop but perhaps Massdrop can arrange for the matte black stealth version for future drops.
Amazon has the fountain pen, roller ball and ballpoint set for $81.37 right now. Prime shipping means getting it in 2 days, not 4, as well. A marketplace seller has it for $79.95.
This drop charges over $90 for the fountain pen and roller ball only, and you have to wait at least a week to get it, too?
No way. Pass.

It says the collection offers a matching set. The fountain pen is part of the collection and you can get matching rollerballs and ballpoints. However, reading the actual product name, it only mentions the fountain pen because that page is only the fountain pen.
The collection is the "Titanium" collection, which includes the roller ball and ballpoint Titanium pens. This listing is only for the fountain pen from the Titanium collection.
I decided to go for it. I thank SeckinBodur and Ironhelixx while my wallet curses them :-) I overlooked deathgate's post - I looked at the Monteverde and Goulet websites and couldn't see a mechanical pencil listed there so I assumed there wasn't one.
can you guys please make the STUB NIB available on this drop??? I know they have that option and this is the one I'm looking for
It looks great, save for the contrasting cap. Might it be possible to attain one of the Deluxe versions (matching carbon fiber cap instead of the Ti coated one shown)?...perhaps in a future drop if not this one?
Will this have the same nib as the Monteverde Invincia Black Tie Fountain Pen I bought?
djaung
Monteverde uses the same nib on the full Invincia line. The only difference is the black steel nib on the Titanium vs the natural steel nib on the Black Tie. You can see the nib and pen better in the pictures on GouletPens for comparison.
I'm trying to make up my mind on this one. How fine is the fine? I mainly use Japanese pens and was surprised at just how wide the F was on a Diplomat I bought. Pity Yafa don't make a pencil version - I'm not interested in getting a rollerball.
Aramchek
I have a Monteverde Prina with Fine nib. Although it isn't as fine as a Japanese fine nib, it is finer than German nibs I have. More like a Japanese fine-medium I guess .
Aramchek
Not sure if this helps, but here is a sample of a fine nib from Monteverde (I did make it slightly wetter than stock) compared to a TWSBI 580 medium nib.

The Catalina(F) Writes super smooth.
Is it possible to just get the rollerball? Love the pen, but already have the fountain in black.

Select the Monteverde Invincia in the Goulet Nib Nook for line comparisons: http://www.gouletpens.com/nib-nook
ironhelixx
That's fantastic. Thanks a lot!
I'm veeeeeery tempted... Damn, I have a pen show to attend in 5 days, if I don't buy anything there I'm coming back!
Title: titanium fountain pen

The pen is great though

Hi @chrisw and @Diegoartes -- Sorry about the mess, it must be pretty cold where you live.
Ink cartridges with ball seals are known to burst in freezing temperatures; we're aware of the issue, but it's not really feasible for us to remove the included cartridges before shipping.
If you would like to have replacement cartridges mailed to you, please complete the Customer Support form - select "Specific Order Inquiry" and choose this drop from the pull-down menu.
