Hello!

I recently found a Pilot Custom 74 for sale for a nice price, and it's equipped with a Soft Fine nib. For anyone who has ever had their pens reground by Mr. Pendleton, do you know if it is possible to get a BLS grind from that Soft Fine nib? And if you have such a nib, does it write just as springy and "flexy" (term loosely used) as it originally did, along with its new stub properties?

The line variation is the function of the tipping which is shaped during the grind.

 

The softness of the nib is the function of the material of the nib itself or the design of each tine, or both.

 

They are both Basically independent of each other.

I see, thank you for the information! I suspect Mr. Pendleton will be seeing a package at his doorstep soon then.

I am sure he would be happy to respond to your question. It's been my experience that if you email him, he will email you right back. He's a very nice man!
