I'm all about vintage flex and want to use a rough adaptation of Copperplate for journaling and letters.
A while back I purchased a lovely little gold-filled ring top Wahl FP with a wet noodle #2 nib. The nib writes about a Western EF when not flexed, so I'd like to get a finer nib.
My question is: should I have the nib reground to a finer point for calligraphy purposes or should I get another pen entirely?
Will the small size of the pen make it harder to control for styles like Copperplate or Spencerian, or does the weight of the all-metal construction make up for it?
Control is fine with the EF nib, but I'm wondering if it will be harder to control with a needlepoint nib.
My big pen purchase goal for next year is to score a wet noodle Waterman 52. Would it be better to have the nib on a larger pen like that made into a needlepoint?
Thanks for any advice!
