His Nibs.com update -- New Delta & Mega
Permalink Closed

His Nibs.com update --
New Delta & Mega
September 22nd, 2007

Next week we'll be attending the NY/NJ
Pen Show http://www.nycpenshow.com/home.html and hope to see many of your

I again urge everyone to sign
the petition http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/Fountain-Pen-Stamps
for the USPS fountain pen stamps series. We
need a lot more signatures to make an
impression on the postal service.

Monteverde has answered the call for
an all-black Mega in the smaller size
employed by the burgundy and limited edition
versions. The gold trim sets it apart from
its oversized black cousin as well.

With the recent passing of Luciano Pavarotti,
it's fitting that his predecessor -- perhaps
the greatest tenor in history -- Enrico
Caruso, should be honored with a series of
pens. Delta has done just that -- in rich,
beautiful celluloid -- with their Limited
Edition Caruso pens.

Delta also introduces a model that's a bit
easier on the pocketbook...the Vintage.
Classic lines, with a less-than-classic price.

Lai Yee has been inundated with orders for
her handmade pen rolls since their
introduction in our last email update. The
'Chinese Horoscope' and 'Cats' patterns have
permanently sold out, but she's introduced
five or six new patterns for your inspection.

Gold and black Mega

Since it's introduction in 2006, the Mega
line of pens has re-written the definition of
what a fine rollerball means. From the very
beginning, I've had customers who've said
'I love the look of the all-black
oversized Mega, but it's just a bit too big
for my hand. Can Monteverde make an all-black
that's the same size as the medium-sized

Monteverde listened, and we're proud to
present the Gold and Black, and all-black
body with/Gold (3 micron) plating trim. The
medium-sized gold and black Mega is actually
a full-sized pen by anyone's definition. It
measures 5-1/4" capped and 5-3/4" posted. For
the fountain users amongst us, it's just a
little shorter -- and with a similar girth --
to a Montblanc 149!

Delta Enrico Caruso limited edition

His voice soared above the constraints of
early recording technology and his records
achieved far greater popularity than any
other music of the time.

During his career, Caruso made over 266
recordings. He sang at many of the World's
greatest opera houses but he is best
remembered for his 17-year career as leading
tenor at New York's Metropolitan Opera House
which began on November 23rd, 1903 with his
seminal performance as the Duke of Mantua in
Verdi's Rigoletto.

Delta's Enrico Caruso Collection pays tribute
to the talent, the music, and the drive of
one of the most famous people of the 20th
century.  These are writing instruments in a
grand tradition.

Delta Vintage

Delta has long been known for producing some
of the most beautiful, handcrafted entries in
all of 'Pendom', whether in their regular
lines -- such as the Dolcevita -- or in their
limited editions, like the new Caruso.

Unfortunately, the price-range (even with our
generous discount) of most models has put
them out-of-range of a number of collectors.
I'm happy to announce that Delta has produced
a new line of pens -- with classic styling --
that directly addresses that issue. The
Vintage collection brings Delta design and
craftsmanship within reach of a whole new
group of pen enthusiasts.

Important note: This is a
cartridge-only pen, and was not designed to
fit an ink converter.

Who has the biggest pen now?

Measuring a bit over 10" high, these plastic
jumbo pen containers work perfectly to house
your gift of a pen roll -- or for filling
them with a pen or two (tissue paper works
well), chocolates (my personal favorite), ink
cartridges -- or whatever your imagination
conjures up. They're also handy to win bets
of 'who has the biggest fountain pen'!

On the blog...More on Alex the parrot

For those of you who read the story of the
passing of Alex the research parrot in our
last update, there's a more detailed article
from the NY Times, along with a video of
Alex, linked from my September 16th blog entry.
