Hi, I recently purchased my Pelikan M805 Stresemann Fine and absolutely love the way it writes. The nib writes fairly wide for a fine and is comparable if not wider than my sheaffer and cross medium nibs. However, I was wondering if there were grinding options for the Fine rhodinated nib to maybe improve the smoothness as the sweet spot appears to be rather small. I would prioritize smoothness over line variation as I have tall thin handwriting but I would entertain the idea of a cursive italic if smoothness was maintained.
Is it possible to grind the fine nib down into a stub or cursive italic and if so, which grind should I get? If not, would tuning improve the smoothness in general?
The SF Pen show will be my first pen show and since I'll be going tomorrow, I was wondering if it would even be possible to get the pen ground in person; if so, how early should I get there in order to ensure an opportunity with a nibmeister?
