I use an Aurora Optima Reflessi with what I think is a 1.1 mm Italic square-cut nib in 14kt gold. I've used it for years both for calligraphy and for my day-to-day cursive, to which it lends an accent of beauty just not obtainable with non-Italic nibs.

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
