I will sell Platinum #3776 Balance with the Music nib ground to Contrast Italic. Fountain pen in very good condition with long nib( type 20), production in April 2010. Only a pen is included. The width of the ordinary line with the right side for vertical direction is 1.0mm, and for horizontal direction 0.2mm. The flow ink is likely to moderate than wet. I consciously made the reverse side sharper and almost did not polish the writing edge. The width line by reverse side: in vertical direction is 0.9mm, and in horizontal direction in 0.1-0.15mm. There is no scratching. After processing and polishing, feedback has noticeably decreased, but is still present. I think with dry ink it will be clearly noticeable. Payment by any cards through the Payoneer system(personal invoice) or through Moneygram if it is more convenient (unfortunately PayPal in Ukraine does not work to accept money). The fountain pen is in Ukraine, shipping by avia priority recommended package with tracking. On average, delivery to Europe and USA is about 2 weeks.

thiagojp posted a topic in Fountain Pen ReviewsPlatinum un Nice Pur lim edition with a crisp Italic Hello FPN! It’s been a while since I wrote a review, but I think this pen demands one. I love italics, almost as much as flexible nibs. Therefore I own a bunch of italic nibs in all the spectra of smoothness, but only one customized by a nibmeister ( a B cursive italic by Mike Masuyama I bought from Franklin Christoph, wich is one of my favorite nibs of all time) so I have been looking around for another custom grind. I love my CI but wanted to try a crisp italic, because I prefer as big a contrast between thick/thin lines as poss
Hi all, I'm considering purchasing a pen that has a double broad nib that I'm told has been ground to a crisp italic. I've used cursive italics and still find them a bit sharp on the edges for me and would prefer a smooth cursive italic (or even a stub). Is it possible to regrind the nib to a smooth cursive italic? I'd certainly be willing to give up some of the width of the nib to do so since it started as a double broad. Thanks for the advice.
I have been using the nib customization services of Pendleton Brown for a couple of years now. I thought it was past time for me to post some samples of his fine work. In my opinion Pendleton is a living treasure. Invariably when I send him a pen it comes back to me writing much better. Some times it is like a different pen altogether the improvement is so great. I have gotten the full gamut of customization work from him, soft stubs and super crisp italics on both hard and flexible nibs. While all his work is phenomenal my favorite are my flexible crisp Italics. I am posting some of my
