I've started to compile a handwritten nib review database (well, as database-y as you can get when they're all done in one notebook, anyway) and wanted to share the first one I've done. It's from a new nib craftsman who lives just across town from me (thumbs up for that!), FPN member dannzeman. Aside from Dan being my friend, I have no affiliation, and I'm not on his payroll. I am, however, one of the few people out there who have been fortunate enough to sample some of his handiwork. I liked this nib so much that I made him an open offer that when he felt like he was ready to do it, I'd like to have him stub my Pelikan M805 (those of you who know me well know what this means).



I've got a few more of these that I'm planning to post out fairly soon. Some are stock nibs, some are ones that I've ground myself, some are nibs that talented individuals have ground for me. Hope you'll find this helpful!

I've never made any claims at being subtle. wink.gif
