Hi Guys,

Just a review of a Pilot VP Cursive Italic by Pendleton...really pleased with it. Probably my favorite nib overall - great line variation and really smooth (although the thin upstrokes do sometimes limit how fast I can write with it).

Cheers,
NM

I've got a "B" CI VP nib from Pendleton, it too writes like a dream, I ended up with two more PB nibs not long after I got the VP nib!

Thanks for the nice handwritten review. :thumbup:

Hey how many MM is the nib? and what type of paper are you writing on?

I didn't measure it but based on comparison to other pens I'd say the nib is about 0.7mm. I'm using some cheap notebook paper bought from Target.

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

I have a VP with broad nib that I want to send to PB. Do you know if he grinds on site at the DC Pen show? Rather than ship off, I may do that if he is going to be there and will grind on site.

I believe he will be there and have his 'grinder' as he says, but you might want to send him an email to be sure.. If you need it I can send it to you via PM. :thumbup:
