Montegrappa Nero Uno Linea Rose Gold

I agree the style is a bit "heavy", but in the end, it's more about the writing qualities, so I've decided to overcome that. And it's probably the best writer I have so far, I'd put it on a pedestal, like my Pelikan M1000.

I have one in gunmetal/chrome, which I think is a bit more subdued than rose gold (although less attractive as well, imho). I happen to like the design overall. Even though I have large hands and this pen is on the narrower side, it's actually very comfortable to hold. The section itself is round rather than octagonal, and it's quite long so there's no chance of my fingers touching the cap screw threads (a major annoyance for me). The only minor annoyance is that when the cap is posted the lip of the cap rubs against my hand as I'm writing.
Agree that the nib is quite smooth, although I have found similar smoothness in other companies' pens as well. My fine nib runs wide - writes more like a medium. I think this inlaid nib is quite attractive, and definitely an asset to the pen.
I actually think this pen is less blingy/overelaborate than most other Montegrappa pens and Italian pens in general. It has a nice, quiet elegance to it, and is why I got it rather than that Krone t-rex I was holding in my other hand....

Edited to add: it may seem less blingy to me, because I have the smoke trim, which isn't as bright and eye-catching as the rose gold.

The ink-flow is quite generous on mine. I guess that would be problematic on a paper prone to feathering. Try it on notepad paper, which is usually a bit glossier than white sheets.
Nice review.... what ink did you use?
