  1. How has your nib prefer eve changed over the years? I used to buy fine and extra fine nibs exclusively until about seven years ago, when I started getting into broad and upwards. Now, my standard nib is is almost always going to be a stub or cursive italic, and wouldn't bother with anything smaller. I think larger nibs can be more demanding to use, but also help in maintaining a clear hand. Any thoughts?
  2. from iampeth.com website, i found that i need to align the tip of my nib with the axis of the holder, ( sounds reasonable enough ) However, the nib is ALREADY inserted as far as it will go. Yet it protrudes over the axis. My Nikko nib is also the same situation... I think its Speedball design problem. What do you think ? http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3744/11081707705_e0d39eb977_c.jpg

    Pelikan Nib Reproduction!

    Everyone is probably aware that Pelikan over last year have started dramatically reducing their nib range. After speaking to a contact who has been conversing with Pelikan, they will only be producing: EF F M B Stopping BB & All Oblique Nibs! The question that I would like to pose is, if Pelikan did a production run of 500 nibs for say the M800 & M600 range. The 500 nibs split into 250 of one type of nib & 250 of another. Which Nibs would you like to see production of: Italic: 1.1, 1.3, 1.5, 1.7, 1.9 Stub Nib. Please leave a choice of two nib types! & How many people would be interested in buying one of the pens with reproduction nibs...? Thank You Regards rrs
  4. There are so many reviews of the Namiki Falcon out there, so for this review I want to focus on the custom nib by Mottishaw. A couple of words of praise for Mottishaw and his people at nibs.com. They held my hand the whole way, worked through one exchange because I ordered the wrong kind of pen for the writing I was hoping for, and rushed the job so I could have it before John went on vacation. Everyone is very hot on his Spencerian grind right now, but I am glad I listened to him about the oblique grind. It is very nice for my handwriting. This is also my first review, so let me know what I have left out that you want to know. I am posting two images. One is the pen right after I received it, and the next is after a week or so with it. I have heard that the nib loosens up on the flex after use. It may be the case, or I may just be used to how hard I can ride the nib and still control it. Both reviews are written with the standard Namiki black cartridge. The converter options (Con-50 and Con-20) are pretty small and kind of messy for so little payoff, so I just use cartridges and then refill them with my favorite inks. And here are some pictures of the nib.
