This pen was packaged in a large, hard, green clam shell box. The pen is secured in place on a satiny white bed by a white satin ribbon. Under the tray, there is a box of ink cartridges and pen refill instructions. It should be noted that although this box should hold 6 cartridges, Monteverde only supplies TWO. Which is the most ridiculous thing ever, because why put them in this box then? It's a let down. Very minor, but anyway, just a note.
This steel stub nib (1.1 mm italic) is a shiny black nib with a single slit and a round breather hole. The nib is engraved with Monteverde USA, the logo, and the peaks running through the breather hole. It's a pretty cool looking nib, and it suits the pen.
I like this clip, both aesthetically and functionally. It is springy,s o it's very easy to use with one hand. The upward angle of the end also makes it easy to slide the pen on to papers and into pockets/pen cases.
Thumbs up. I would prefer if the nib was a bit wetter, but it writes stub-like, and the pen is very comfortable for me. The colors are awesome, and it's an affordable, fun pen. I like it. This is a comfy pen for me, actually, so that combined with the decent nib and color scheme...!
