Bryant-

Wha is the Blue lacquered pen with silver trinnings? It's not a Proust.

Today... Proust with fine nib and MP4 with a super wet medium...

Jeen:

Yes, the width of the line is perfect. It still allows shading, moreso it seems on the bottom half of the characters, but still is fine enough to allow formation of 'e' and other similar letters when I write small, but not too fine as to be toothy or without character.

Glad it turned out well.
Enjoy! thumbup.gif

1990s 149 in a 1980s 149 desk base, XF nib. But I'm carrying a sterling Aurora Optima with XF and a Parker 51 Flighter (XXF) so I have a choice.

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

Today wore a MB Star Chrono, accurate as always, and wrote notes all day at work with a 80s 146 with a sweet 0.6mm stub & MB royale blue.

Hopefully my 144 Classique that is due to arrive via USPS, back from Pendemonium for a fine cursive italic nib grinding. Didn't like the M nib.

Bugmd, If you get the chance, please post a photo of your Platinum facet Solitaire in the Solitaire thread.

I used a 149 today to celebrate Friday. What a week it's been. headsmack.gif
