    Is This My Imagination?

    As some of you may know, I have been on the hunt for the right ink for my new Sailor Vega MF. It seems to me that the MF nib is no larger than the HF I have on my 1911S. Samples are with Sailor Jentle ink (black) in the 1911 and Oster Tokyo Blue Denim in the Vega. The MF doesnt seem as smooth, which is odd as it should be wider. Anyone else have similar experiences? It is more pronounced on my Peter Pauper Press journal than it is on, say, a newspaper crossword.

  2. Hi everyone, I was hoping someone could help me. I bought a black Namiki Emperor with an M nib (foolishly) before researching some writing samples. Having looked at some now I would prefer to get it with an FM nib. Does anyone know what Namiki’s policy/procedure is on doing this? The seller is looking into it as well but is short staffed due to coronavirus, and getting a response is taking a long time, all the while the pen is sitting unused in its box and packaging, which is very sad! Thanks!
  3. Hello all! I was wondering if and how your tastes have changed over the months/years/decades of fountain pen use. I have noticed that my own tastes continue to change. When just starting out I had a fondness for broader nibs and smoother was always better. I absolutely did not like using nibs that have any bounce to them. Right now, a few years later, I am really enjoying using finer nibs with a feedbacky feeling and I am experimenting with softer nibs and really enjoying it. So: Have your tastes changed and how?
