The nibs are wonderful (I bought a set without a holder), with very quick shipping. The writing is very therapeutic and addictive! You can also try all those cool inks you can't put through a fountain pen.

PM sent for nibs and holder. I'll write letters with them, wonder if they'd work for sketching? -Charles

PM sent back. I'm not much of a sketcher. Maybe someone who is will post.

How'd you do that? I'm seeing a sketch where there isn't a sketch. Or I'm not-seeing a non-sketch. Well whatever it is, I'm still smiling at your unique reply. Looks like the nibs will work if I can avoid catching them on the paper. Thanks, Jill.

The nibs should be sketch-worthy if you know how to sketch. headsmack.gif A dip nib will start catching on your paper when it is getting old. I take that as the sign that it's time to use a new nib.

PM sent inquiring about availability of dip pen and nib set. Looks like a great way to try out ink mix experiments!

Dip Pen with 10 flexy nibs

10 assorted, antique never-before-used steel dip nibs with a dip pen holder.
$10.00 plus $3.00 shipping.
U.S. only.
Paypal.

Dip pens are fun to use. They are also a great way to try out a flex nib if you are considering buying a flexy fountain pen.

Note: Unused nibs have a protective coating that needs to be removed before you start using them or they won't write properly. Soapy water will do the trick.


Time will say nothing but I told you so.

It's a pretty cheap date and lots of fun. Are you left-handed? I think dip pens might be harder if you're left-handed.

HI JILL!
I have been meaning to write to tell you how awesome the nibs that you sent are! The best part of the package though was/is your note. Ohhhhh! That I can someday before I pass write like you do ! Enchanting .. and the purple ink (looked perhaps like Waterman's) was perfect too.

These are great assortments folks ! I may have to order another set !

Thank you zquilts. That purple ink is Baystate Concorde Grape (watered down 50%.) It's the featheriest ink EXCEPT on some Southworth's papers.
