Hello folks
recently got to have opportunity to grind a Jotter FP.
And the Jotter FP has been around in the market for a long time, it is a very less appreciated FP.
I would think it is much better than many starter FP such as the Safari or the M200.
Also it makes very good italic nib

Could you post a close up photo or two of the nib showing your italic grind?? I would love to see how you changed the existing Jotter nib.

small (fits nicely in my Franklin Covey notepad pocket brief note holder), yet elegant (for a jotter). very smooth med nib (compared to that of the Vector or Frontier).

... in a nutshell...

great little pen! thx for the review, FPW!

PS. i, too, wanna see the pic of the italic grind.

do you use microgrit sandpaper to grind the nibs to italics?

when i ground a lamy M nib down i used a wet stone and then finished up on some crocus paper. would have been easier with the proper abrasive papers, but oh well... the nib was great.

I also did a grind on my Parker Jotter medium nib by using a hard white Arkansas stone with water to take out metal from the nib's top and bottom but still leaving enough iridium. Then I grind the point down into a workable width with some iridium left. In a medium nib, the widest I can get is about +/- 0.7mm wide. I finish the job by using 12000 grit paper or higher to polish the sharp edges so it won't scratch and catch the paper. I will post photos of the new nib and a writing sample as soon as I can figure out how to post photos with my reply. :hmm1: Hmmmmm....

This is regarding the nib grind I did on my PARKER JOTTER Fountain Pen. IMO, It looks more of an italic stub that I did on my pen and I would like to your comments and inputs.



Thanks to watch_art, I learned to figure out how to upload photos. Here finally are photos of my pen and its italic nib with writing sample :

That's how I did my nib grind and I hope you all enjoyed the photos of my PARKER JOTTER with an italic nib.
It's a very smooth and sweet writer.
