A friend of mine asked me an advise as he is going to get one of these pens from massdrop :

 

Grifos Pen and the City Fountain Pen  https://www.massdrop...ty-fountain-pen

Montegrappa Ducale Fountain Pen  https://www.massdrop...le-founatin-pen

Montegrappa Game of Thrones Fountain Pen  https://www.massdrop...tain-pen-bundle

 

 

unfortunately I haven't use any of them ....I hope to get some thoughts from you and so far I don't think there is budget issue

While I don't own any of the ones specifically mentioned I do own both Grifos and Montegrappa fountain pens.  Both are really well made units.  Montegrappa has the advantage of heritage while the Griffos offers a Sterling silver body. It's hard to go wrong with either.

I think for him silver wins he does not have interest in heritage :D

I've owned both in the past, and still have a Montegrappa which I'm going to move on. For sheer value for pens of similar quality I think that Grifos have the edge.
