Hi,

 

I'm new here but I was reading all the topics in this forum.

 

I just ended up ordering Platinum Music Nib with cursive italic customization and wonder to know if someone else already have this pen to ask about.

 

Best regards

I love the Platinum music nibs but I've not heard of the particular modification you are having done. I like the smoothness of these music nibs and I'm not very good with the sharp edges on many cursive italics. The music nib, just as it is, gives lots of line variation.


Yes, yes I do owe you a letter.

I think Geoduc had a writing sample for a Nakaya Music nib that Mottishaw cut to a Cursive Italic. Not Platinum branded but I think the nibs are more than just identical in make.

Each purchase from nibs has been a pleasure, and the one nib I had customized was exactly as I described how I wanted it.

 

You can look forward to a wonderful pen,

Yes, I bet in nibs quality when ordered the pen and customization.

 

Now I need to be patient and wait for new toy.

When you do get the pen with the modified nib, could you please post a writing sample. Thx.

Seconding that request - I'd love to see a writing sample and hear how you like the nib!

 

I have a Nakaya music nib, and a broad cursive italic (ground by John Mottishaw), but a Platinum/Nakaya music nib with cursive italic...now, that's interesting!!  :)

Hi,

 

I received a e-mail from nibs dot com today with the shipped status info!!

 

I'll post the write sample when it's arrive but the brazilian mail and customs authorities are very slow... I have a Sailor Fude Pen with  the customs authorities since 31th may and I haven't received the tax documents to pay yet

Custom work from John Mottishaw (nibmeister at nibs.com) is always great, cursive italic nibs are a great way to add a flourish to your writing or even do some calligraphy! 


The little things really count.
