Leonardo is soon becoming my favorite pen maker. I already own their limited edition Rosewood Ebonite with a gold medium nib and wanted to try their steel nib which was so raved about plus this pen's material was too good to pass.
And boy did this pen live up to my expectations and how! This is a very well made writing instrument and easily one of the best steel nib amongst all the brands available currently in the market. Please buy it and thank me later.
Met deze LE heeft Leonardo wederom de nodige wensen van vulpen liefhebbers afgevinkt en een hoogwaardig product afgeleverd:
- Mooi celluloid
- Piston filler
- 14K, zachte en perfect getunede nib
- Ebonite feeder in Omas traditie
Kortom: een echte Limited Edition.
Fontoplumo communiceerde goed en de vulpen kwam mooi verpakt aan. Altijd weer een kadootje om uit te pakken! ;-)
I had been seeing posting for Leonardo pens for a while and had even looked them up on Fontoplumo. All the reviews were excellent and this model does not disappoint.
It did help that Fontoplumo was having a sale, so decided to pull the trigger.
Communication was excellent, and the pen arrived as described.
Could not be happier with my purchase and also loved the experience of purchasing at Fontoplumo.
I have been collecting modern fountain pens for several years and I already possess three Conids. When I discovered that an orange, ebonite, kingsize model was available I simply had to have one. Orange is my favourite colour and I love the warm feel of ebonite with its friendly, sulphurous aroma.
My Monarch is in a refined, dusky hue, not the garish, citric colour usually offered by pen manufacturers and the titanium nib is arguable smoother than a gold one, allowing a wide line variation.
As a somewhat dour Yorkshireman I rarely employ hyperbole, but this is simply my perfect pen, the one I’ve been searching for. I feel privileged to own this limited edition. Very well done!
Ik heb deze pen aangeschaft om dagelijks mee te nemen naar mijn werk.
Ik vindt de M805 te groot om elke dag in mijn borstzak mee te nemen.
De M200 serie ( met de M400 serie ) heeft de juiste afmeting om precies in een borstzak te passen.
Ik heb voor de M215 gekozen ( i.p.v. een M400 ) omdat deze een aantrekkelijke balans heeft tussen prijs en kwaliteit. ( en hij ziet er goed uit )
Op het papier dat we op het werk gebruiken schrijft de stalen punt van de M215 even goed als de gouden punt van de M400 serie.
The Leonardo Momento Zero Blue Positano is a very good looking, big pen. The resin material is of very high quality, and the blue positano colour is just fabulous. The medium steel nib writes smooth and perfectly out of the box. Even though the Leonardo is a big pen, it lies very comfortable and balanced in the hand. The writing experience is great.
Very happy with my purchase and first class selling and delivery from Fontoplumo.
It's my 4th Momento Zero. Love the solid feel & steel nib writes very well. Slight rattle from the converter in the barrel if you tap it hard enough but it doesn't bother me because it doesn't rattle whilst writing. Of course, overall shopping experience has always been very pleasant with Frank.
My grail pen all through was Visconti Homo Sapiens Bronze Age. I have come across Conid and was head over heels for this product. I immediately contacted the Conid website and the waiting time was excruciating - not complaining. But could not wait up to September which was the delivery period expected as on May 2019.
It was then I searched for the Special editions and I made up my mind that I would buy it from Fontoplumo. Corresponded with Frank, a wonderful person to deal with. On getting the answers to my queries, I have pulled the trigger with a specific request for ensuring the delivery on 22.6 being my birthday.
Inspite of the technical delays, I got the same delivered on the dot. I was given a complimentary Ink Bottle and the shipment was done by DHL Express contrary to the policy that I would be entitled for it free only if the order value exceeds 400€.
This could not have happened but for Frank. Loved dealing with Fontoplumo.
As far as the Conid Pen is concerned it is just wonderful. Even with a steel medium nib it is a pleasure writing with it. Fantastic pen and equally fantastic service.
I read the review you wrote where you indicate the pen skips.
- have you tried different types of ink? (sometimes a pen works better with other ink)
- how did you determine the feed is the problem?
We'd like to make the pen work for you so you have a proper writing experience.
