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).


German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

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.

Great work judging by the photos. Have you considered doing grinds of other people in the future? I get the feeling there's a shortage of nib grinders in your part of the world.

Hi Hasorer. This is Chanchal from Kolkata. Just too elated to find a nibmeister locally. Your works are wonderful. I have a Pelican souveran m600 medium nib. But I feel it's way too broad and wet nib, uncomfortable for my writing style. I was actually planning to buy a fine nib for m600, just when I found your post. Can your expertise be any of my help? Awaiting a response from your side.

Yes, I have been doing grinds for people since couple of months now. Recently ground nibs at a show in Mumbai organized by Fountain Pen association of India. Thank you :)

Great photos.  Thank you for posting.  I've been messing around with a couple of Pilot Varsities and various micromesh pads in an attempt to turn one into a stub and the other into an architect.  I don't have the guts to try my hand at anything more expensive than a Varsity or a Wing Sung.

Nice clean work Jaspreet. I'm still having trouble with the final polish on my grinds. Those pics look great.
