Hello all, I would like to introduce Toronto Pen Company to the good folks of this community. My name is Salman Khattak and am usually found moderating the Calligraphy forums (as 'smk'). I started this venture (Toronto Pen Company) last year to provide pen tuning and custom nib grinding services to the local community. I have been lucky to receive great support from fountain pen enthusiasts from all over Canada (and abroad). I recently realized that I never updated my profile on FPN to announce all this - hence this post. Details of the nib grinds I offer: TorontoPenCompany.com/prices--process.html Some writing samples: TorontoPenCompany.com/writing-samples.html Store: TorontoPenCompany.com/store.html I also offer Calligraphy workshops from time to time as well as custom Calligraphy services. I am working on a line of greeting cards that should be out soon - I will make sure to make an announcement here when the time comes :-) - Salman
I was reading Mike Dudek's review of his Pilot VP with an custom Architect's Grind on The Clicky Post. I really loved the pictures of his writing after the modifications and I was thinking about trying it out on a TWSBI nib. But before I spend as much on a nib as I spent on the original pen, I figured I'd ask around on FPN and see what people who had already used an Architect's grind thought of it. What are the pros/cons and, in your opinion, is it a good modification for everyday use? (I block print, for the record. Been wanting to get back into cursive, but for now... I block print.) Jonathan
