I would like to know if anybody has experience with the Esterbrook 2312 and 9312 italics. The reason being that my 2312s have worn down into patterns like an inverted vee and like a half left oblique. This required a reshaping to restore the italic shape on the 2312. I would like to know if others have had a similar experience with these nibs. The 9312, being tipped has shown no wear after much more use by me.
I am thinking that the 2312 italic nib is better as a collectible than as something to be used. Neither 2312 was used hard or bore down on. So, I was surprised to see both worn out of the original italic shape of a straight across cut. I should have taken pics, but I have already reshaped them.
