Hi

 

I am Jaspreet from India and I grind nibs. I usually post pics of my grinds on instagram ( handle - Jazzorilla). I am new to FPN and i will be posting pics of my grinds here for constructive criticism. 

 

Attaching some pics of a Broad Cursive italic grind on a Kanwrite nib which writes as a smooth B on reverse.

Nice looking, and it's always nice to have two sides.

 

IMO double sided is something to look at, with the modern Pelikans (outside the 200).


Everyone says poor Mozart dead at only 36. None say poor Mendelson, dead at only 38. His family only allowed him to start at 20, but before, musicians use to come to the Mendelson garden to steal the music of Mendelson and his sister. A good artist also, can still buy prints of his famous Scottish drawings in Scotland.

I have a Pelikan m605 with a Broad nib. The back side wrote like a sharp italic. Eventually i ground it again to have a forgiving CI on one side and a sharp italic on the other side.
