Let me get this straight. $139 pen is called an EDC? If I were to buy one of these, it would stay chained to my desk with something a lot more sturdy that my bank uses to secure its pens with. I have no confidence in my ability not to lose pens. My pocket is like a parking lot for pens. Some come in, others leave. There is no permanence. I think that Buddha would like it.

Is the Montegrappa logo printed or engraved on the cap band?

I am somewhat surprised this question hasn't been answered. Is it real silver as in 923 Sterling?

I think it's time to stop thinking you're going to get a perfectly-wonderful, nib-you-love from any manufacturer, at any price. Better to learn how to smooth, tune and/or grind the nibs you've ended up with, instead. Everyone has a pen they don't like, and that's a good place to start. If you can't see acceptable progress with the sort of smoothing pads and sticks sold at places like Anderson, you're just being too timid. Whatever you nib is tipped with, it will respond to mild abrasives, lightly applied, and gradually increased/reduced as needed, until the "scratchy" issues everyone is complaining about, are resolved. It's not that hard, and you're starting off with a pen you'd probably stopped using anyway. You have little to lose, and much to gain. Don't be scared!

Good advice, and let me add that there are a number of very good instructional videos out there showing very clearly how to smooth and tune a nib. SBREBrown, for instance.

Is the body “steel” or actual “silver” (AG)?

You can use acetone to remove the clear coat, but be careful not to let any plastic bits touch the solution. I did that to a brass pen cap, and the plastic liner disintegrated.

Cheers that's useful to know. Ill keep an eye on it and may or may not give that a go if the marking becomes really prevalent.

I’ll just say that I bought a Montegrappa Fortuna Fine nib, and it was the worst nightmare I ever had, if you think about smoothness, you better forget it, let me start saying that the nib scratches the paper, and it isn’t just me, do the research!, this kind of brand has a lot complaints about the fine nib, do you think about replacing the nib?, well good luck trying to find one, get in contact with montegrappa people?, don’t even think about it! they send you to one of their representatives, Kenro that’s the dealer name in NY, then you pay $35 in advance, so you can send the pen to Kenro, and they send it to Montegrappa in Italy, that’s the procedure, just to check your pen, not saying that this way it’ll take more than a month, if it’s under the warranty, they could do it for

free, if not they let you know if you want to do the job, so in my opinion, nah thanks, those pens look good, but too much trouble!

Lamy is lubricated. I use J Herbin ink and have found it flows quite nicely. Parker ink is good too.

I don’t mind their using steel nibs, but bring down those prices. Don’t see a reason for gouging.

Many European steel nibs are excellent. My Pelikan 200 is incredibly smooth. However, while typically Montegrappa makes a beautiful pen, I too tend to believe this particular pen is overpriced at this price point. I would not put the company’s pens in my top 5 performing pens.

No weight listed for a metal pen? Bad form, Massdrop. Bad form.
