Iridium Point Germany On A Monteverde Invincia



Recommended Posts

I just ordered a Monteverde Invincia from eBay and the nib doesn't have the Monteverde's engraving. The seller told me that are old Monteverde stocks from 3 years back. I've seen that kind of nib in a lot of handmade custom pens here, how well do these nibs behave?

 

Thanks.

 

Here is the listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/171347601704?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

Every Invincia I've seen has the Monteverde branded nib on them. I am not an expert though, so there may be some that are generic.

 

As for how it works - chances are both that nib and the Monteverde nibs are made in the same factory so there probably won't be any difference in writing.

Well if it writes good I'm happy

 

Here is the picture of it

I have never seen such a nib. Not in a Monteverde (of any age) nor in any other pen/brand.

Chances are the source is, yes, in some far east factory.

Question now is how do you like its performance when actual writing?

Mm, sound pretty unusual, the seller wanted to withdraw the listing when I sent him the email concerning this specific nib, but I requested to purchase it anyway since I like the two tone nib.

The early Invincias had a smaller #5 size nib that was a generic IPG. Some time back I replaced one on my tartania colored Invincia with a newer, larger #6 Monteverde branded one.

So this pen has a #5 nib but a #6 could also fit in there right?

I actually bought a whole section with housing/nib/feed for it directly from them, but I believe you can get away with using the same section. You definitely will need at least the housing and feed for a #6.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to

      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
