Wanted to give a brief report on the LeGrand Blue Hour with OM nib for which I waited patiently for almost six months. I inked it with Blue Hour ink and used it at work yesterday. The pen is much heavier than a 149 and just as long, but the OM nib is excellent, and the ink matches the color of the pen very nicely. It should do just as well with the Tolstoy Sky Blue. I am very grateful to La Couronne du Comte for their usual excellent service, as well as their pricing that enabled me to obtain this pen. Mont Blanc quality shows through all around with this magnificent pen.
I'm planning to get a Rouge et Noir black, but would like a nib with stubbish properties. I've got a B nib Wilde which has got wonderful line variation and is just lovely, but generally I don't like my nibs to be too broad. Do you think my best chance of getting what I want lies in an OM, B or OB? I realise every nib is hand finished so nothing can be guaranteed!
I started a thread here last year about Pelikan stopping the production of these nibs. The Pelikan website continues to display these nibs as options and has a whole section (pun intended) dedicated to "selecting the correct nib", with these nibs being options to choose from. Was reading a thread the other day, in which a post from a reliable German member stated that Pelikan may be considering a U-turn on this decision. Any news on this?
