Hi guys,

 

I have been a LAMY user for quite some time and use its fine and medium nibs.

I want to 'upgrade' and buy a Conklin Duragraph, but cannot find any good comparative nib reviews that show the line thickness of the Conklin medium & fine nibs versus the LAMY medium & fine nibs.

Could one of you tell me how these sizes compare, or show me in some way?

 

I'd love to hear from you and thank you in advance!

 

Best regards,

 

Julia

Have you tried using the Nib Nook at gouletpens.com? Brian and his crew have written with Noodlers Black using every pen and nib size in their inventory so you can compare them online.

I own a Duragraph but it has a stub nib (which I love). Based on reviews I have read (Matt Armstrong has a good one) the nib sizes on the Duragraph seem to run a bit thinner than European standard, aka Lamy.
