  1. "Humanity can live without science, it can live without bread, but it cannot live without beauty. Without beauty, there would be nothing left to do in this life. Here the secret lies. Here lies the entire story." Dostoevsky. The Montblanc Writers Edition Dostoevsky fountain pen was released in 1997 with a 'limited' number of 16,300 fountain pens. It is a suitably moody pen for a writer who often plunged the dark depths of the human psyche, yet it's moodiness comes with a terrible beauty too. When Montblanc get their designs right, they really do get them right, producing miniature little wor
  2. This is my first Kaweco and I really dont know why I waited so long. Im really happy with this pen even as a daily writer despite the ultra small size. I went against all better judgement and ordered a double broad nib on a pocket pen and boy am I glad I did! It writes like a very nice stub nib with about a 1mm line width. This may be common knowledge with Kawecos but it was news to me. My only complaint about the nib is that it was on the bleeding edge of babys bottom and actually showed mild hard starts on the first letter. This was easily fixed with a short polish with 4K micromesh

    Bb Nibs

    I have a Lamy 2000 with a BB nib aquired some time ago, but couldn't quite get used to it, or more corectly there are no situations that require such a broad line. It's like writing with a brush. The pen was part of a bunch I got for a very nice price, but apart from trying it I have no ideea what is the purpose of such a broad nib. At work, definitely not, journaling also not. Even on very nice paper which tames Medium-wet nibs, this nib is extremely broad for my taste at least. It's like 4 times the line width of a medium. So my question is, where and how do you "broad loving people" use thi
  5. I bought a Pilot 78G with a BB (1.5mm flat stub) nib which writes well if I bear down on the nib, nothing extreme but heavy handed like with a ballpoint that doesn't write well. With no pressure it basically doesn't write at all. I want to put document proof ink it for signatures but, I can't live with the pressure needed to get ink to flow. When I bear down it seems to write well at the speed I write so, I'm guessing the feed is adequate and the nib itself needs to be tweaked. The slit between the tines appears to be a bit too tight which is what I think is the problem. What do I do to
  6. Advice needed! I enjoy a broad nib on my everyday use pens. In fact, I'd like something broader. I've been considering the Pelikan M800 BB nibs, Visconti Homo Sapiens BB nibs, Pelikan M1000 B as the next step. I've also become very intrigued with the Sailor speciality nibs. The King Eagle looks like great fun but very hard to get hold of and very expensive (and possibly too broad - I've seen some interesting writing samples on this forum). I've tracked down a Cross Point emperor nib on a Sailor 1911 which looks like it offers a great broad line (as well as line variation). I should also say I
  7. Seems like a number of online vendors are selling M800 BB nibs. I read on Niche pens website that they had commissioned a batch to be produced by Pelikan. It seems however, that nibs.com, writing desk also have them. Was this some kind of collaborative efforts by them, or did Pelikan listed to our concerns?

    M800/805 2B Nib

    I noticed yesterday that PelikanPens (pelikanpens.co.uk) is now selling 2B nibs for the M80* range, in both two-tone and rhodinated finishes. There is a bit of a price premium, but nothing too dramatic. (For information, as nobody seems to have posted about it yet; no affiliation apart from having bought from them in the past.) Note to moderators: this is on the cusp of belonging here and in the Marketwatch section. I placed it here because of the specialised nature of the information. Please feel free to move it if that would be more appropriate.
  9. I've recently heard that Pelikan have discontinued all oblique as well as BB and 3B nibs. I'm sad, as BB is an exceptional nib, and one that also lends itself well to customisation, which also is the case with the 3B. Anyone else share this view?
  10. 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?
  11. Just been looking at Iguansell website. I came across the rather handsome M625, and when I scrolled down the nib options there was a stub and italic option, as well an OB option. Just wondering if anyone knows if this is indeed something that Pelikan have introduced, or, as I think, this might be the result of the unintentional misappropriation of the Aurora nib options to this line of Pelikans..
  12. I'm really keen on purchasing my first Japanese pen and really like the Platinum urushi Izumo, red coloured pen. The problem is that I want one with an extra broad, BB nib. I know that Japanese broad is more like. Western medium, and medium nibs just don't work with me. I want to have it custom ground to CI. It appears that retailers say that extra broad is not available with this pen, however, Mottishaw's nibs.com do have an extra broad as an option. Any insights into this? Is it possible for retailer to order one from Platinum, or is this not possible. I really like the pen, but not the r
