If you could only pick one of them, on which of the following would you rather have a BB nib:  (i) on a 146 Solitaire, or (ii) on a 149.


Which pen size do prefer? The nibs should write similarly, excepting for individual variations.

Here's an inexpensive nib which I have found to be a delight! Recently got my Kaweco Sport Galen Leather edition in the mail with Kaweco's #2 BB nib.

Kaweco Sport pens are fun. My first was a BB. I also like the calligraphy set for some much wider nibs. ;)

I might try one of those. A lot of nib for not so much $!

Here is a vintage Kaweco Sport V12. Marked nib size is B but it is more like a stubby BB if you, for example, compare it to vintage Pelikan nibs. Awesome fun in small package and a piston filler to boot! What is there not to like? <3
