Very nice.
Good to know that the sailor music nib is so smooth. The sailor 1911 I own (extra fine nib) has some tooth, but I guess that's the nibsize...
The red color (mine's black) is stunning, as is your photography. Thanks for the review.
May you enjoy your pen in good health and for a long time!

Thanks for this review! You seem to be really enjoying your Sailor. That's what it's all about, isn't it? I love my Sailor Realo with a Medium nib, and I am sure I will want to get another. Your review makes the music nib irresistible!

Very nice handwriting! Do you find that the music nib would work as an every day pen? Is the line too broad for that?

I am no expert, but I would think that the issue would be how big one writes over how broad a nib might be.

I'm currently waiting on a stub italic customization on a LAMY 2000M -stainless steel- and I got a broad to start with. In my emails to the nib-miester I mentioned that my writing is not small. For example, it's a bit of an effort to write small enough to fit my address in the return lines on envelopes. He suggested a broad in that case. I already have an older LAMY 2000 with an EF nib that gets the job done just fine and is a very smooth writer. So I figured, I already have the must-haves taken care of and I'm going extravagant anyway, may as well go whole hog and get something with some character while I'm spending the money.

Then again, maybe I need magnifying glasses instead of a wider nib. :roflmho:
I'm looking forward to making bill paying more enjoyable sometime in April.

By the way, that is a beautiful pen you got!

Do you find you have to keep the pen at a steep angle to write smoothly? Others have said that is the case with this pen.

Nice review! Thanks for sharing. :)

I love Music nibs.

I've watch many of your youtube video.
As I can't contact you through youtube I do it here.

Could you please add substittles in this vid?

Sailor nibs]
That's so interesting!
(Please add the nib name)
I wish the exemples were in cursive.

I'm interested in the 1911 Ivory white fountain pen but I would like the nib to be a music one.
Is it possible?
thank you!
