  1. This is just a Pilot Prera with a regular steel nib, nothing special... But then I carefully and methodically bent the tip of the nib into a smooth curve (and smoothed it), and now the topside (engraving side) of the nib is able to put ink down somewhat similar to an oriental paint brush with a large variety of line widths depending on the writing angle and pressure used. It also gives sharp pointy end strokes (not sure what the technical term is...) if done properly. The bottom (normally correct) side of the nib still writes in extra fine lines. This is similar to the Condor (trademarked) nib by Mr. Richard Binder (I am not saying this IS the Condor nib). Of course, Mr. Binder can do a much better job than me and his nibs are much much more professionally finished than mine. But for what it is worth, it is a very good attempt. (I am not selling a service here, it is just a demonstration) This nib is able to produce Japanese (Kanji) or Chinese calligraphy when used carefully and in specific ways as shown in the end of the video. Although I've never tried it, it should be able to do a certain degree of painting / drawing as well. I have more fountain pen / writing related videos on my youtube channel if anyone is interested.
