dmvara posted a topic in MontblancSo hello to all. It's been awhile since I have posted on here. So here is my tiny question. I have 2 149s. One is the calligraphy and the other is a vintage with the ebonite feed. I was contemplating sending the vintage one in to Nibsmith for a grind to either a stub, CSI, or CI. I guess I am not sure if it is worth changing the M nib in favor of something else when I already have the flex Calligraphy. Will I be let down and gravitate back to the flex more even after grinding down the 149 to a different nib? Should I just leave it as a M nib? I have never written with a CI or CSI style nib. I have only written with a metal stub and I am certain it is totally different experience with an 18k nib. I could just sell it off and just keep my 149 Calligraphy, but it is nice to have a vintage piece. Just trying to decide what is the best course of action. Thank you for any advice you may have and have a great day my fellow writers.
