Hello - Monteverde Nib Bad, Goulet Nib Good



Charles2

Recommended Posts

I bought a Monteverde Aldo Domani for my first fountain pen, with a medium nib and Monteverde Magnum ink cartridges.

 

It was scratchy and difficult to start from the beginning. I tried different angles to the paper, different rotations of the nib, different pressures. An amateur with more enthusiasm than knowledge, I fiddled ten different ways to "fix" the nib and soon ruined it.

 

I bought a Goulet medium #6 nib for a replacement. After a week of modest daily use, it has been delightful. Starts right away, never scratches or skips. (I gave the little lollipop included in the package to my wife.)

Welcome to our little corner of the universe from a pen user in San Diego. Way to go! Learning that I could swap nibs was very empowering for me and has greatly improved many pens.

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.

To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!
