Well its my first official post! I am coming here for some help on a newly acquired pen. I purchased this one at Scottsdale Pen and Knife. Its a blue and yellow Monteverde Regatta. The shop owner explained to me that this pen was in a Doctors pen collection and was taken care of. I saw it in the bottom of the showcase and told him i would buy it without even trying it. its that beautiful (to me of course).

 

Anyway... he didn't have any other information on the pen. I got it home and inked it up with Waterman Turquoise in a Monteverde converter that I got with the Intima I also bought. This pen is really smooth. like unbelievably smooth. I was wondering if there are any other Regatta owners out there that can help me out with more information on this pen. I have no idea when they were made, how much they were new, what nib size it has, or even if they are all this smooth. I would love to buy another one (or 12 lol) after the experience I have with this one.

 

Thanks!

JM

I think you have the first version of the pen.

Screw cap instead of the current magnetic.

 

In a way you're lucky cause these pens do not exist anymore, but then again I think both re-releases are much more interesting than the original.

I have one of these, and I never really warmed up to it. I agree with you, however it's a very pretty pen!

Increase your IQ, use Linux AND a Fountain pen!!http://i276.photobucket.com/albums/kk11/79spitfire/Neko_animated.gif
