I've been playing around with my new Binder 0.7mm cursive italic nib. I'm still having so much fun with it. It hasn't improved my handwriting yet, but I'm going to work on it.
In the meantime, here's a short comparo of a Pelikan M250 with fine nib, VP with stock medium nib, and VP with the cursive italic, and a closeup of the nibs.

Thanks for posting! The handwriting sample was helpful, but the photo of the nibs side by side was really nice. :)

Thanks for the photos. That cursive italic really adds some flair to your writing. ENJOY!!!

Great review! I've had my Binderized left-foot cursive italic nib in my Vanishing Point for a couple of months now, and it is still about my favorite to write with! It has such flair! My stub nibs aren't eventhis much fun!
