  1. So I just have a little question.. Why don’t people just change the size of their handwriting to accommodate the nib size? I hear so many people say some things like, ”I would love this pen, but it has a medium nib and it makes my handwriting look blobby.” Or, “I just dislike extra-fine nibs so much, they put down too fine a line for my handwriting.” And when I hear this I just wonder, “Well why don’t you write a little bit bigger or smaller?” I am not talking about people complaining about extra-fine nibs being too toothy or broad

    WTS Gorgeous Blue Bexley Fountain Pen with Duo tone Broad Nib. I bought this as New Old Stock. Someone from Bexley verified for me that this was made for a specific customer so there is no model name. I inked it once and it wrote beautifully. This is my nicest looking pen but there is another pen I would like even more. I don't have the original box it came in. Price of $135.00 includes shipping only in the USA

    Shadow Nib

    Shadow nibs make for interesting writing, but they are really a useful tool when learning a script written with a broad nib. They make your nib angle and stroke direction more obvious. Thus, they make it easier to identify (and correct) errors. David

    Lovely Broad 51 Vac Nib!

    Hi folks, I had my eye on a 51 on Ebay that only had four fairly uninformative photographs and fairly minimal description (made in Canada, Parker 51), but the nib looked potentially interesting (though a little out of focus) It could have been blurriness - or a very broad nib. I made an offer of £20, and figured at worst I would have a parts pen. Turned out to be a 1947 vac-fill 51 in reasonable condition, with a seriously broad stub nib. I've only dipped it so far, but it writes really nicely. I'm waiting for a diaphragm & shellac in the post (my last bottle of shellac dried out), and
  6. Not exactly your prettiest pen or your best writer but the pen that you get along with the best. The one you would never flip for whatever reasons ignoring sentimental value. An absolute keeper. For me it's my Omas Paragon Ludovico Einaudi signature edition with a broad nib. I know we have pens on the opposite spectrum that have been combative every step of the way for no reason at all. I have one in mind right now so there must be something to this both positive and negative. I ordered this Omas new after they went under. It was one of their last pens and the only year of the "sign

    Blue Inks In A Mb 146 Broad

    Bonjour - having experienced some stops / drying out with BayState Blue in a 146 90th anniversary edition Broad nib, I tried some other inks in addition to the bottle of J. Herbin Éclat de Saphir on hand. The Éclat de Saphir looks the most vibrant after BSB, then MB Royal Blue. Thanks for your thoughts.
  8. Visconti Homo Sapiens Corsani 90 limited edition, broad nib Stylograph Corsani is an Italian shop selling pens, watches, leather goods and accessories since 1924. For their 90th anniversary in 2014, they commissioned Visconti to make a limited edition of 79 fountain pens (corresponding to the shop's street number) and 11 rollerballs (to make 90 pens in total). These pens are based on the Homo Sapiens, using the grey stacked celluloid as used in the Wall Street (and others). The Visconti Homo Sapiens probably needs no introduction for many people here, and if it does there are many reviews in
  9. Can anyone tell me how broad the broad nib used by Delta on their Dolce Vita series is? Do they run a little narrower than most?
  10. First let me start off by saying I recommend flushing a Lamy Safari right when you get it. I had some starting issues at first. However after awhile the ink flowed pretty well. I am aware now that in the factory they are tested and ink will be left in the feed. This pen is very broad in my opinion, after using a medium Japanese Nib it feels massive. However that is because it is a broad german sized nib, from what I understand. Ink flow is dry at the moment for my liking but i still havent flushed it because i've not gotten my converter and have no bulb syringe. I like the pen but the ink th
  11. Be nice, this is my first review and I'm new. LAMY 2000 REVIEW Body: makrolon Nib: broad Ink: J. Herbin “Perle Noir” Paper: Rhodia Dot pad # 16 Vendor: Pen Chalet (for all items) This fountain pen has been written about for a long time and at length, by much more experienced people than myself. That said, I think those who are relatively new to FPs and a certain pen may offer a perspective that is beneficial or informative to other newbies or people who have not owned or wrote with this pen. That said, I feel like I am late to the party. APPEARANCE: I would imagine that this p

    Twsbi Bold Nib

    How broad and wet is the twsbi bold nib? Most of the reviews here are for the other nib sizes. I've got a twsbi 580al with bold nib coming my way in about a week, so I was wondering. For comparison, I've been using my only fp so far (platinum 3776 century m nib).

    Trying To Love Broad Nibs

    I recently ordered a new pen with a broad nib, and got an old classic with what seems to be a broad as well. I have been liking the two stub nibs I have, but the broad rather eludes me...it's just a thick wet line. Any tips for writing with broads (other than bigger writing, I know that one) as far as technique or paper preferences? I have tried several different notebooks and have not yet found a clear paper partner for the broads. Thanks!
  14. A very kind person and friend in Chennai, India sourced this pen for me. The P381 aka the "New Classic" was apparently produced between 1992 to 1995 as per this source. link I had heard from some friends that the pens were being sold for really cheap in markets like Singapore. Anyway I came to know that recently the pens had started to become available in Chennai as well, so I requested my friend to enquire which he did. I got the pens for a really good price from the Chennai market, almost too good for a gold nib pen, IMO. The only issue was that only one color, the Vintara-green was avai
  15. Dear pen fans and experts, I recently ordered yet another Pelikan (my fifth), and it arrived in the mail today. It's an M200 with a broad nib. I tried three different inks (Diamine Syrah, Green/Black, and Rustic Brown), and each of those inks looked much lighter in this pen than in the other pens that I have used these inks in. The pen also skipped a bit. I grabbed my loupe, took a look, and saw that the tines were misaligned (weird, because the pen didn't feel scratchy, just dry and a bit skippy). I aligned the tines with my nails (well, I don't think they are perfectly aligned now eithe
