Monteverde Intima Lava


Monteverde Intima

Color: Lava Smoke
Material: Resin
Filler: Cartridge/Converter
Date c. 2013
Nib: M Black Steel
Working? Yes

A really gorgeous pen! The ‘smoke and fire’ swirl with the black furnishings and nib make a really striking combination. On the lighter end weight-wise, but balances well in the hand. Like most Conklin and Monteverde pens, this one needed a bit of a nib flossing when first inked up, but works like a dream. I did have to have the section replaced by Yafa, the parent company, as the black enamel flaked off. They admitted they’d had a bad manufacturing run on this model, but the new section has put in a lot of miles with no issues. This remains one of my favorites.
