The Drop: Monteverde MVP Fountain Pen

It’s a big EDC market out there, and tons of awesome gear is released all the time. We made The Drop to help you discover the latest and greatest essentials worth a spot in your EDC.

When it comes to fountain pens, you might have seen the word “demonstrator” used by EDC enthusiasts. A demonstrator pen refers to it being clear or see-through. When fountain pens were the primary kind of pen for everyday carry, demonstrator models were for sales agents to show the internal elements of the pen. Today, demonstrator pens like the new MVP by Monteverde are cool collectibles that let everyday carry stationery lovers show off their favorite writing implements.

Another great thing about demonstrators like the MVP is that they quickly indicate what color of ink is currently loaded. MVP stands for Monteverde Pocket Pen, a great all-around everyday carry fountain pen. It’s small in size, and it can take international-sized ink cartridges. But one of the benefits of its design is that you can fill the body directly with ink. The eyedropper capability of the MVP gives you a maximum of 2.5mL of ink capacity and writing potential.

What we like: This is Monteverde USA’s first demonstrator clear body MVP. Whether this is your first fountain pen or you already have an MVP of your own, it’s worth adding to your EDC pen collection.

What to watch out for: If you’re not a fan of fountain pens for everyday carry, this pen does come in a standard ballpoint or rollerball version.

Final verdict: A practical and beautiful fountain pen for everyday carry.
