Hello all
i have always loved line variations in pen nibs. And been practising on some nibs. So i plucked out the courage to turn out 2 working chinese FPs, turning their original fine-med nib into gentle or cursive italic. The attached writing sample belongs to one of them. Not sure if this is the proper site to put this up.
But i hope to know what folks think about the line variations of the pen ?

The nib is fine to med, so i estimate the italic is about 0.7 to 0.8mm width. I have also smoothen the edge so that it don't dig into paper.

comments welcomed
many thanks

Thanks for the review, looks a nice pen and good job on the nib you've got good variation in your writing, I wish I could toy around with nibs.
And how can this be, because he is the Kwisatz Haderach.
