The pen and a box of Kaweco ink cartridges

Figure 1: The Pen

I recently picked up a Monteverde USA Tool Pen Inkball (link). The pen is, uh.

One of the worst pens I’ve laid hands on

I cracked the box open, discovered there were no ink cartridges or adapters and… it didn’t get better once I ordered a converter and some standard international mini ink cartridges.

NOTHING I’ve tried for ink cartridges or adapters fits in this pen. At all.

The tip of the pen where the cartridge / converter would plug in is a soft plastic and I’ve already over tightened it to the point where it can be twisted freely with minimal force.

I haven’t written with this pen and I already want nothing to do with it.

I’m not going to bother any further. If you want it there is a contact form, send me a note and if you’re willing to pay shipping, it’s yours.
