HisNibs.com update -- Monteverde Regatta Sport
February 27th, 2014


I was chagrined to see the recent retirement of the Regatta line of pens
from Monteverde. With it's magnetic cap, this had been one of my personal
'go to' pens over the past several years.

I'm happy to report that the Regatta has returned in the form of the Regatta
Sport http://www.hisnibs.com/regatta_sport.htm -- magnetic cap and all!

Go to its webpage to learn all about the line as well to see a video
appraisal -- including a look at the 'His Nibs' yacht.

Monteverde Regatta Sport

As with the previous iterations, the Sport is available in three color
combinations (if you consider black/black to be a combination ), and three
form factors -- fountain pen, rollerball and ball pen.

These are hefty, oversized pens, with the fountain pen measuring 5-3/8"
capped, 6-3/8" posted and 4-7/8" with cap held aside.

The largely metal pens alternate lacquered sections with carbon fiber
panels, separated by knurled rings...creating a very distinctive look.
Although the pens have a nice heft, this design prevents an overly-heavy
pen, and I've found them to be very well-balanced and a pleasure to write
with during extended composing sessions.

On the blog...Whatever happened to John Han****?

"Another attempt to require the teaching of cursive handwriting dies in the
Indiana General Assembly. Some school districts still teach the artistic,
free-flowing and whimsical style of handwriting but some don't. The demise
of cursive handwriting leaves some experts worried that it could have an
impact on future generations."
