Ok, even this is rather an "old" post, I will share some of my thoughts.
I do traditional Chinese calligraphy, with brushes and pens. And I live in the Florida, so, my daily writing is still English.
Let me put it this way, for my bold naginata togi nib, wrtting English with it is not very pleasing. Butter-cutting smooth? Yes! But, too bold, and too juice. Really just a signature pen. English letters don't really have much variation, in sense of stroke direction and length. For English writing, my favorite is Visconti Dream Touch nibs, those you can find on Homo Sapiens.
However, when it comes to chinese calligraphy (Japanese Kanji calligraphy writes Chinese words too.), totally different story. Chinese words are so complicated, and it gives the nib a lot of free degree when you write, that including the pen's angle. My Togi can sometime deliver a stroke variation as rich as brushes. That is the best fountain pen to write chinese words. Please see the blue circles in the picture, as you can find stroke variations easily.
To be honest, almost all fountain pens can write thinner when you write in a vertical position, since you are using only the tip. But these Naginata are so very smooth even you are just using the tip, that's something.
I just wish I was born few years earlier, so that I can still buy a Cross Point with $600.
