Hi All,

Well, Another Greg Minuskin First! Check out this Namiki VP sporting a really custom "Duel" retip. Super large crispy 1.3mm italic for one side, then on top an extra fine tip! The Triangle approach for this retip was the solution I was looking for, and it works wonderfully. Enjoy the photos!

Very interesting....
Could this be done with a Parker 51 and say a .6-.7mm stub with an XF on top
What would something like that cost...

Thanks for your reply!

The problem would be getting the apex of the triangle over the nose cone of a 51 pen when you screw it on.

How much does this cost for the tipping on a VP? How smooth is it?

P51 - You can always put the nib in after shell is on?

Cost is $120.00; smoothness is determined on your paper, ink, your unique hand, etc.

Dear Danny,

True. One could do that, but adjusting the tines, especially on a crispy italic, is more difficult this way.
