Hello. I am new to the forum. I live in Oklahoma and have had a growing interest in fountain pens. My primary collection is with Montegrappa for a variety of reasons.
I write because I happen to own the Montegrappa Revolver among other LE pens. The Montegrappa Revolver is actually one of my every day use pens. By no means is it just a show piece and meant to reside on a desk. I keep it close at hand in my pants pocket protected in a leather case.
The pen writes with surprising ease both in the nib design and the ease of holding a pen. Montegrappa ensures all their LE pens, that may be known as big metal pens among collectors, are usable and comfortable to hold. I pull out the revolver pen when writing in my journals and when taking notes with patients.
The power push fill mechanism is also easy to use. Simply place the nib in the ink bottle and one simple push fills the reservoir.
The pen is solid, made of 316l stainless steel with almost a blue grey tone to the steel. The wood handle is 4200 year old naturally stained bog oak. The revolver cylinder uses precisely made faux bullets that can stay in the chamber or be easily removed. As a gun enthusiast and reloader, I am impressed with this pen. As a pen user, it's one of my favorites.
The pen may not be for everyone, that's okay. It was not designed to fit everyone. For those who do appreciate it, they will be getting a complex constructed pen that took three years of development to make from Montegrappa. No other pen manufacturer comes close to this pen. The next pen that is coming out from Montegrappa will only top this one but from different angles. It will also use the power push mechanism.
Let me know if you have any other questions about the pen.
