After failing many times to get good photos from an iPad, I have given up.
So, my apologies for the truely poor images, which do not do justice to the
wonderful nibs from Richard Binder.
The Edison Nouveau Premiere LE has a JoWo nib customized to XXXF with Extra Flex (Artists Nib),
and the ink is Diamine Oxblood (which I find to be wetter than the Kon Peki in the Pelikan).
The Pelikan has its Pelikan nib customized to XXXF with Extra Flex. The ink in the Pelikan is
Iroshizuku Kon Peki.
Both these nibs are soooo... amazing. Just wonderful.
I've posted two images, both awful quality, unfortunately. The paper looks like paper bag paper in
the photos! The first is on an Exacompta pad, and is really white paper! The second is on regular
(read 'poor') quality graph paper. The grid, at 5 squares to the centimeter, gives a clearer idea of
scale than plain paper.
I have not flexed either nib very hard, usually writing with only the weight of the pen plus a little.
My estimate is that I used light medium pressure for these samples for the 'squiggly bits'.
I never flex a fountain pen nib very heavily.
These pens are used for regular, everyday writing, not just for special occasions. They're that smooth,
but I have to mention that I learned to write with old school steel nib pens. So I may be biased.
Does anyone else remember the inkwells in desks?
I can heartily recommend these nibs! Hmmm....Maybe I need some more of them!
