I was glad to meet JC Ament as well. Since he is local to DC area, I'm hoping to engage his services more often. I had him work on my Conid to grind it a bit finer to my preference.
I saw some other folks offering custom grinds that looked very enticing. I'm leaning towards getting a fine italic as my next option.
I picked up a Stipula Speed that looked really nice. It has a captured converter that I'm not familiar with. I hope it's not too much of an issue to clean.
I also picked up an Esterbrook 3668 sunburst nib for a new dollar Esterbrook pen too. This is my first foray into Esterbrooks.
