Thank you for sharing that letter. I'm very tempted to pick one up now. It looks quite stubbish and very crispy. My kind of nib!

I also visited Fritz Schimpf" web page, where they posted another couple of samples. It is, indeed, a very desirable nib. Being a "Special edition" it is a bit over my meanings, but very desirable nonetheless. Actually, it seemed to me one of the best Montblanc modern nibs altogether. 

 

As Montblanc gave such a clear example of their virtues in making this kind of italic-slightly-stubbed nibs, it would really interesting if they would add this variant to their nib choices.

Lovely! Hoping these are a complete fast sell out so we can have a 149 version for those of us who find the 146 too small.

 

Yes please.

So my pen is here ;)

The packaging of Fritz Schimpf is really beautiful...it's a carton wrapped in brown paper. Whoaaa

 

I need to write some more with this pen to say if I really really like it...It is not as smooth as my other MBs. 

The line variation is pretty noticeable...but it is quite similar to my B Nibs...and the B nibs are smoother...

 

but see for yourself

I’d pounce on a BBB in a heartbeat. Fritz might want to start with a BB to get the ball rolling. Look how terrified the narrow nib contingent are of a simple B.

Were they to know of the wider than BBB dreams of a few of us...they scarf down chocolate chip cookies like there's no tomorrow.

 

Those larger than life nibs are where the fun is...as you've been saying for years.
