  1. hey Guys, i have a chance purchasing this nice pen, which in my opinion looks just amazing. BUT! i have read lost of information here on FPN and in other reviews.. some people state it is a pistonfiller, others that it uses the converter inside (and you can not take it out or swap it). If that is true in my opinion in this case converter is the worst filling technology for the price of the pen like that. It seems quite suspicious as when you turn the knob up till the end it still sturns, and would not stop. So which one is it 1. a pistonfiller 2. a hidden converter which you just

  3. Hello, I'm a new fountain pen user currently I was given as a gift from a colleague a Montegrappa nerouno medium size My question was at times when I'm writing I write at a slight slant and the pen would stop feeding ink and I couldn't continue to write unless I readjusted the angle, so I was wondering why this was and how I could mediate this. The ink I'm currently using is quink from Parker (black) I'm sorry if this is posted in the incorrect location, I'm still trying to navigate through the forums, if it can be moved please do so or let me know thank you. Thank you for reading, The

    Oldest Italian Pen Manufacturer

    Montegrappa advertises that it was founded in 1912 and is the oldest Italian pen manufacturer. Aurora advertises that it was founded in 1919 and is the oldest Italian pen manufacturer. To the subtle Italian mind there may be no contradiction here. But to me, an American, having a simple, childlike mind, there does seem to be a contradiction. Can anyone help me resolve my confusion about this?

  10. Well after a long few weeks between ordering the pen and it landing on my doorstep, I'm pleased to say my Montegrappa Extra 1930 Arte Deco in shiny lines has arrived. I had been hoping for a slightly less expensive version of the shiny lines material to be used on a 1930 since the Extra Otto. As much as I loved the look of the Otto, I couldn't justify the price. Now that this model was released, and in a small limited edition number of 50, I decided the time was right to dip my toes into the Montegrappa waters and get my first Extra, Unboxing the pen I was immediately pleased that the celluloi

    Review: Montegrappa Revolver

    Hi, everyone! New here, and just did a brief introduction yesterday. Wanted to share a review we did on the upcoming Montegrappa Revolver (limited edition) from the Cult Collection. This is a truly amazing pen with some super unique features - acts like a real revolver without any of the dangers! Feel free to check out our review here: https://www.truphaeinc.com/blogs/truphae-news-and-stories/montegrappa-limited-edition-revolver-stainless-steel-fountain-pen Would love to hear others' thoughts on Montegrappa - one of our favorite brands for the best metalwork!

    New Member Introduction

    Hi, everyone! I wanted to introduce myself to this network. I have been a long-time pen enthusiast, and am the owner of luxury pen retailer Truphae, Inc. We specialize in high-end luxury pens from companies like Aurora, Montegrappa, ST Dupont, Visconti, etc...and have great relationships with them as well. We also carry brands such as Pelikan, Cartier, and many others. Our goal is to find the coolest pens around, particularly rare ones that many other people would have a hard time sourcing. We not only sell, but buy and consign as well. Feel free to check out our website, www.truphaeinc.
  13. Hello everyone, I have a new Montegrappa Passione ballpoint that I could use some help with. This is a twist actuated ballpoint. When the ink cartridge is retracted, there is a bit of play in the action before there starts to be resistance. As it wiggles, I can feel a small pop right before the cartridge starts to extend. There is still play in the cap/rear of the pen when the ink cartridge is extended also, though not as severe. Is this something inherent to twist ballpoints or should it be tight with no play? Is there anything I can do to tighten up the cap and remove the play? Li
  14. Hello, Can anyone please advise from experience if the Montegrappa Exta 1930 Broad nib is stubbish? I am aware that their medium nib runs slightly narrow, but I don't want a greater line width if it is devoid of character. Any advice or writing samples would be much appreciated
  15. Hi there, Was fortunate to be given 2 pens from an old relative - one a nice Conway Stewart 58, the other not sure - appreciate your help. My first real experience with old fountain pens, and enjoying cleaning them up and using them. The unknown has marbled brown celluloid? with what are clearly brass bands and clip. There is a button filler, but the internals - two thin brass strips have broken away. The nib is stainless with "Ducale" and "4" imprinted. No markings on body Is this a Montegrappa , based on the Ducale , but the clip doesn't seem to match , although the cap shape/bands

    Montegrappa Repair

    Does anyone know how to dismantle a sixties montegrappa pen with a leaking piston? It looks i bit like a parker 51 section.
  18. This finish is absolutely spectacular! Im a little jealous actually. I havent been able to fire a pen to this color so now I have a new goal. The colors are amazing in person. It difficult to photograph and capture everything but theres a lot going on here and it looks amazing in person. The color does depend a lot on the lighting. All day at work today I was insistent that the cap was much more golden than the body and it bugged me. At home the colors match so much better! It looks great in light with more yellow to it. The price is a little ridiculous though and I would not have bo

    Montegrappa Fortuna Blazer

    The Montegrappa Blazer is a new member of the Fortuna family. A steel pen, treated with fire, to give it a unique and colorful look. We enjoy it and recorded a short video. https://youtu.be/mFrDpSmvYQ8 (I couldn't find a way to embed the video here)

    Nib Finish Deterioration

    I have a Montegrappa Fortuna Skull that I purchased in 2013. It has been a reasonably good pen, performance-wise. Not the greatest. Not the worst. The important note is that I have not used it much (since it is not the greatest performer) and it has remained happily capped and in a secure box most of its life. In fact, I only remember inking it two times (with normal standard inks that everyone uses, nothing weird, alien or BSB) and have only written with it probably a total of two-hours during its cushy little life. And I have cleaned it carefully and properly, as I clean all of my pen
  21. Hi guys. I would like to ask some questions about Montegrappa pen nib unit for sale and repairing. The nib unit of my Montegrappa 80th anniversary pen was damaged as shown in the picture. I was wondering if anyone a brand new nib unit available for selling at the moment (nib and feed only prefered). Besides, where can I get the pen repaired? One more thing, are there any other nibs and feeds of Montegrappa that could be used as a substitution of this pen? Thank you very much.

  25. Shortly after I read a review of the Montegrappa Desiderio here: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/327241-montegrappa-desiderio-review/?p=3916037 I acquired one myself, in the brown/red color: I thought it would be interesting to compare it to an original-generation Montegrappa Espressione, to which I feel it bears some resemblance. Note that there was a later edition of the Espressione that looks somewhat different from the original, and substitutes the 18kt gold nib of the original for a steel nib (at a reduced price), but here I'm only comparing the Desiderio to the origi
