ok... suggestion beside getting smooth paper Brause rose is inherently very very scratchy at least compared to some of my other nibs
Nikko G, Tachikawa G are among of the less scratchier nibs I have

Esterbrook 538 I used it with conjunction on the Ahab since it fits and it was good


next INK
INK IS IMPORTANTLY I would say do not use FP ink especially VERY WATERRY INKS perhaps something like J.Herbin 1670 inks and Noodler's X-feather would have better chances Sailor inks also have better chances of lesser railroading next get some gum arabic and decant a little amount of ink and use gum arabic to thicken it up
