Hi all, I just purchased my first decent fountain pen, it's the TWSBI Diamond 580AL in silver with an extra fine nib. I was reading around and noticed that there were a lot of mixed reviews on how scratchy the extra fine nib was, and I was wondering what everyones personal experience was? Also, I read that the 580al is a huge improvement to the previous models as the ones made before the 580al had cracking issues. Is this still an issue with the 580al? How do I go about storing and taking care of the pen? I want to take this to class everyday and I'm wondering if you all could send me recommendations for a case or a holder of some sort? Lastly, is there a big difference between the extra fine and fine nibs for this pen? I've seen written samples for both and I couldn't tell the difference whatsoever and I'm not sure if what I've seen is accurate or even for the right pen. Thanks for your time everyone!
I plan to purchase a TWSBI Diamond 580, but I don't know which nib would be right for me. Can you tell me which TWSBI width (fine/medium/broad) is closest to a LAMY FINE? I have a Faber-Castell with a medium, but even that is finer than my Lamy fine. I have looked at Goulet's nib nook but I'm still not sure.
