Hello - New to the Area, looking for a local pen shop to tune my FP nibs - I write in a very small font size and use EF nibs, however the ink flow on almost all of them is too much, looking for a drier experience. Am left-handed too, which doesn't help much in keeping the smudging and smearing down. 

 

Anybody have any recommendations?

Hi there fellow Reno-ite! 

 

Unfortunately, there are no local pen shops in Reno.  I send my pens to Michael Masayama for tuning.  But, be warned, he has a very long, long, processing time.  But he is totally worth it. 

 

I understand the challenges of being a lefty.  May I suggest using a more absorbent paper (i.e. not Tomoe River) and a faster drying ink.  I have good luck with Waterman inks and most Pilot Iroshizuku inks.  I prefer stub nibs, but I understand the need for finer points. 


Best always,

Deborah (aka DrPenfection)
