Thanks. The pen is a Parker 45 with a right footer oblique broad italic, nib code Z. Nice nib but I prefer the standard broad italic, nib code E.

Yeah, I can see that. Since you are doing italic, a "slanted hand", the oblique might strain your hand a little. The straight broad italic would be more comfortable and easier to control for italic. The oblique is generally considered better for uncial, Roman, half-uncial, etc, done as a "straight hand".

 

Enjoy,


Yours,
Randal

From a person's actions, we may infer attitudes, beliefs, --- and values. We do not know these characteristics outright. The human dichotomies of trust and distrust, honor and duplicity, love and hate --- all depend on internal states we cannot directly experience. Isn't this what adds zest to our life?

~Epic


Letter Writers Alliance
Epic... that's Lord Epic to you, or LE for short.   :P
 
A sincere man am I
From the land where palm trees grow,
And I want before I die
My soul's verses to bestow.
 
All those moments will be lost in time.
Like tears in rain.
Time to die.
