I like the look of this pen, but it's not very sturdy. Within two weeks of having this pen, my oaf of a best friend pulled the cap off of this like a normal pen and completely destroyed the plastic screw-on pieces. It is now a slip-on cap... I might save your money and invest in something sturdier.
I've had this pen for a while now but not written much with it until recently. I have mixed reactions: I like the look of the pen and how it feels in my hand, but I'm not impressed with how it writes, at least with the included Monteverde cartridges.

I had a great deal of trouble getting it to start writing at first, and had to flush water through the nib several times using the converter before I could get ink to flow. Once I got it working, I find that the ink flow can't easily keep up with my writing, no matter how quickly or slowly I write. I also find the Fine nib a bit scratchy on Moleskine paper, and the lines much thinner than my fine point pens from Pelikan, MontBlanc, LAMY, or Parker. I'm considering seeking warranty service to see if anything can be done to address the issues I'm having, though I'm going to give it a little more time to see if it gets any better with further use.

All things considered, I probably wouldn't buy another Monteverde pen (especially given the markedly mixed reviews I'm seeing here).
Got my pen a week ago, nice pen, writes like shit lol.
Why is every "expensive" pen I get on here, write worse then my 7$ Metropolitan Pilot?
It's scratchy, it sometimes stops writing, just ugh.
Also is it possible to replace the NIB with a fine one?

EDIT: I see that was already answered on previous page, I'll look into gouletpens.

The Montverde Fine is almost twice the thickness.
Hi msssdrop, I received the package but it came with one unit instead of two. Can someone respond to my enquiry / email please as I sent days ago.

The pen is great, beautiful and smooth to write. Highly recommended!!
Hi All ... Mine arrived today (20/05/16) in Australia .. nice pen, I like the finish on it although it didn't really look the same as the photo (Carbon Fiber isn't the easiest thing to portray in a photo).. good weight.. not inked up yet, so we will have to wait and see, Monteverde can be touch and go at times.
Received my pen over the weekend. Took a few tries to fill the converter, but it filled fully once engaged with the ink (Pelikan ink). It took a few minutes and some swabbing to get the ink to flow, but once it started my pen has been ready to write each time it has been uncapped. I note that some aren't happy with the materials. I think the carbon fiber look has some depth to it. The pen is light and easy to hold. I got the fine nib, and after a few lines it has smoothed out nicely. At first, I thought it might have been a bit too fine, but it's writing well. You don't need much pressure to get ink to paper. I'm very pleased at this price.

Are these compatible with #6 nibs?

Yep, GouletPens confirms that they're an easily replaceable #6.
Received mine today, and my first impression was that the packaging was wonderful for a pen at this price! However, the threads on the barrels were pretty scratchy while uncapping, and there were many tell-tale signs of the manufacturing process on it.

There is more friction to the nib than other fountain pens I'm used to, but that's not to say it's a bad thing - it forces me to write at a more controlled rhythm, allowing for greater consistency and form.

On the whole, the pen is beautifully designed, and I am very pleased with what I got. Thanks Massdrop!

I too noticed the scratchiness when unscrewing the barrel =/

Overall though the pen is great for the price ! Ive got mine filled with the J Herbin Emerald De Chivor and its a great combo with the pen and 1.1 nib =D
