... to there.
I recently purchased a beautiful NOS Parker 45, dark green, brushed stainless steel cap and farily flexy 14K gold nib, circa 1967. I decided to ink and use it.
I was a little dissappointed with how flexible this nib was. I'm a lefty over writer and so the nib just does not work very well for me on my verticals (down strokes all). A couple moths ago I sent a P45 with a big broad nib to Danny Fudge and had him grind it to stub. It came back a terrific writer, this was peraps one fo the best FP investments I have made in quite a while (sometimes lucky trumps smart). Rather than have my new pen languish in the box I'd like to get a replacement B nib and have it ground by Mr Fudge, with the hopes that this new pen iqwoould be as much of a joy to write with as the other.
Where can I turn to purchase a broad nib for the new P45? I would be happy to trade the gold nib, it will never be of any use to me as is. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
PS Apologies for the Flickr link, I don't seem to know the secret handshake for posting pics, help there would also be appreciated.
