Pilot Plumix Nib

Also, are there any other italic nibs that run with that small width of the Plumix (without the need for getting it custom ground)? I like the size, as I have tiny writing... How big is it compared to say, a Lamy Joy with the smallest available width?

Hmn. I'm not sure what the nib width of the pilot prera italic is... Perhaps the 78G B nib (which is an italic) would be of similar line width.
I ground my lamy M nib into a nice stub, perhaps that should be something to consider. Without the nib grind it was excessively smooth, fat and wet. So I ground it and now it has perfect flow and control, and a decent amount of line variation. It's line width isn't thick at all.
Here are some photos, you can't really see the line variation but it's better than the M since i can use it for notes:
(btw, the ink is MB B/B, similar to your Lamy B/B... Awesome ink!)

I wasn't aware that the Pilot Prera and Penmanship came with italic nibs. They looked like "normal" ones from the pictures I saw on JetPens. Or were you saying that it's the same nib, but ground to a different "style" and size?
I found this, so I guess they would be interchangeable. The Plumix just has the stubbed nib while the Penmanship has an EF nib??
