I do confess to liking wet smooth pens. And these two pens deliver. While the stub does have some tooth, it is very nice for a stub which I would expect to have a lot more.
I do not have any great paper so the yellow legal pads I have will have to do. While I can see a lot of feathering in the scan, it’s not nearly as bad on the page to my eye.
I used Aurora Black in the Homo Sapiens
And Noodlers Manhattan black in the Nakaya.
The Nib on the Nakaya was done by Nibs.com and it is very nice
The nib on the Visconti is a stock 23 K Palladium “F” the pens from Pen time and has not been modified. This nib from what I know requires a light touch so I did not press at all to even attempt line variation.
I have no experience with Stubs but it starts right up and writes in any position. Even I get some line variation out of it and I use a light touch and really have no writing skills at all.
Sorry the site only allowed me to load the pics of the pens
The attached files are hand written with some lines and squigels
Please refrain from laughing at my hand writting ( what the heck go ahead and laugh I Do)
