I already announced this post: it's an attempt at reviewing my restored Mabie Todd Blackbird 5245. I'm not very used to writing with a nib as flexible as this one... Will need a lot of practice before I even get near to the art of Richard / Antiono / Hana. Bear with me, ok? wink.gif



Once more in PDF. It worked well the first time...

Interesting handwriting, especially the cross on the 't'. BTW what is that you're writing on--graph paper?

I don't think I've ever had a bleeding/feathering problem with G Lalo. Also, you'd be surprised how airmail paper can take a whole bunch of flex without feathering one bit!

BTW, I forgot to say:

I wish I could discover treasures like that, too! What degree of flex has it got? Your grandfather must be very happy about its discovery. smile.gif
