Thank you for the sample photos NinthSphere.
I was just using an Edison 1.1 mm italic, and actually felt feedback on Clairefontaine from it. I think this is a first or second for me (feeling feedback). So I started thinking I should get the stub. But after seeing your photos, now Im thinking the italic.
I wrote a message to Franklin Christoph about this. Its hardly an easy question to ask the penmaker, but I acknowledged that.
I had the same problem choosing a nib for the Italix Parsons Essential. The nib that came on that pen wouldnt write well, skipped. Suggestions here were to get an Edison nib. Edisons Brian Gray refered me to their meisternibs site. That means an unmarked Edison nib is installed in The Italix.
Usually I dont struggle with a nib choice because most penmakers offer the stub or the italic. At any rate, I truly appreciate your photos and suggestion.
Edited to add that your Bexley looks like it has a nice nib on it.
