The streamlined shape of Intimaâ„¢ is hand-formed from a solid bar of high-grade acrylic resin. It is accented with a special alloy and a heavy gauge chrome mask that will sustain the pen's appeal for many years to come. Intima is available now in NEW striped colors and is accented with jewelry-grade chrome. The MonteverdeÂ® Intima's innovative shape has been imitated, but remains totally exceptional for style, comfort and balance. Intimaâ„¢ can be used as a rollerball or ballpoint pen.
