Do yourself a favor and go to the grocery store and ask for a grocery paper bag (the free one they give to carry your grocery out of the store) and draw some 0's and some 8's on it. Don't draw too many numbers because the nib will smooth out very fast. Also, DRAW LIGHTLY!!

I have done this to many of my MB and it works flawlessly.

Well, IME, most MBs I have used - out of my collection of around 20+, vintage and new - have some feedback.   They are not toothy or scratchy, but you definitely feel the paper under your pen - ala a pencil on smooth paper or skating on freshly-zambonied ice.  


To me, that's a good thing - i find glassy nibs with no feedback to be not very nice for writing, as one loses the tactile sensation of the nib gliding along on paper.

True bliss: knowing that the guy next to you is suffering more than you are.
