  2. i have just bought a pilot 912 with spencerian customization (mottishaw). any recommendations for a notebook that can handle the greater ink output (without feathering, bleeding etc.)? thanks in advance. best, nils
  3. As promised, here's my review of the Nakaya titanium Piccolo Writer with a broad stub nib. My handwritten review is at the bottom, but I wanted to add some thoughts with each photo, so the text of the handwritten review is not going to completely match the review as posted - sorry about that! Here it is, in all its glory Note the pointed ends. On an urushi or maki-e Piccolo, this is a soft, conical shape. On the titanium Piccolo, it's weapons-grade The machining/lathing marks you see here are continued on the grip; they provide a very pleasant texture! This grip is not slippery
  4. So...there are Spencerian dip nibs. And then there's Spencerian nibs, modern modified beauties via the likes of John Mottishaw on the Namiki Falcon and Richard Binder on Edison Pens. I have no experience with any of these four: Edison pens, Falcon nibs, mods by Mr. Mottishaw or Mr. Binder, and I'm curious as to how these modifications compare. Judging from reviews and pictures alone, they look and write great! Lots of line variation, which suits my likes exactly. But how does it feel like to write with one? Is there anything that sticks out? Is the scratchiness very noticeable when compare
  5. Hello all, For Christmas this year, my wife surprised me with a really lovely little Platinum 3776 Sai Demonstrator pen with a Fine-Medium nib. I was writing with it a bit, and while I love it, I'm tempted to have the nib modified by John Mottishaw. I haven't decided if I want to go with a fine stub or an added flex mod so I'd like to see some examples of his work if you guys have them handy. The Nibs.com site mentions that the Platinum 14K nibs are especially well-suited to nib modifications so I'd like to have this guy made special... I do have a Pendleton Point Fine Stub on a TWSBI 540 th

    A Couple Of Sailor Questions

    I posted a thread a day or so ago seeking input on an Edison pen purchase. Strange thing though, even with all the positive comments on Edison Pens I came away wanting a Sailor Sapporo. I've been reading through the reviews etc and I have a couple of questions... 1) Mostly it seems that Sailor has a reputation as a great pen builder but there are a few who say they have inconsistent quality; is Sailor a quality build? 2) I would get it from Mr. Mottishaw at nibs.com; does he do good work? Bonus question: it appears that Sailor nibs are not interchangeable like say Pelikan nibs - is thi
  7. Hi everyone! I'm hoping to have a review of the Nakaya titanium Piccolo up sometime this weekend; until then, here's a shot of the pen with a writing sample from my Instagram feed. Note the stubbed tip - you can see a small amount of gold where John (Mottishaw) ground off a bit of the ruthenium plating to create the stub. It's an amazing writer!

    Nakaya "elastic" Nib

    So it arrived today !!! I had a BB nib in it but there was no love loss as it was just to plain for me... and I need an expressive nib to make my poor handwriting look legible... So here she is fresh of John Mottishaws table. A Nakaya Neo Standard in Heki-tamenuri finish with a Medium soft "elastic" nib. http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/ac10/thevaporcafe/A4CE23BE-59D7-4DD4-9CB2-D8F58A170430-443-0000001D8C5CE3F1_zpscf63d721.jpg http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/ac10/thevaporcafe/6207362B-B9CF-4796-B176-7BC06D090DA6-443-0000001D91F63AA0_zps5779e8d3.jpg http://i880.photobucket.
