Thanks bsodmike. So how would you describe the nib now (the one that you like)? B? BB? OB? Stub? i.e. if you got another pen, how would you describe to MB how you wanted the nib to be?

It's a stubby B with good line-variance. It's easier to send a writing sample if you could provide one. Otherwise, you'd have to get fairly descriptive heh.

"It's a stubby B with good line-variance." sounds fairly descriptive to me. Writing samples are always tough for me -- I have several different pens / nibs that I like which makes it tough to guess what sample to provide.

LOL! I thought so too the first time around, but the nib I got performed more like a slightly thinner broad nib. The line was thick and dull, with no line-variance at all. The writing sample helped them to dig around for a decent nib; thankfully, I had a good example to provide.

I love that red ink in the O3B nib. It's eye-popping.

FYI, it's Iroshizuku Momiji ink by Pilot. They've got a rather fantastic range of colours, and my first bottle as well.

@Ghost Plane - I thought of you as soon as I tried this nib out... 'wow', was my proceeding thought!

Dear bsodmike: as I often noted that your tastes for pens and mines are really quite similar, it was not strange to see that after thinking a lot (and making numbers) about that same pen, YOU bought it! Congratulations! The pen itself is a real beauty, and the uncommon nib make her still more special. Use it in good health.

Thanks zemof! I'll post the same image here for the rest of our TFPN friends to see as well. Hope I don't give GP too much of a shock Posted Image (sadly, I can't find an emote for 'hug')

Right to left: O3B nib 75th Anniversary 149 in Rose Gold Limited Edition of 1,924 pcs, 149 with O3B nib, 149 with B-nib, 149 UNICEF Helmut Jahn LE of 4,810 pcs made in 2005 with OB-nib, 149 from 1980's with 14C nib with long tines.

I'm planning on parting with the 149 UNICEF Helmut Jahn LE to make room for at least one more 139/149 type FP.
