  1. Hello FPNers, I'm all about vintage flex and want to use a rough adaptation of Copperplate for journaling and letters. A while back I purchased a lovely little gold-filled ring top Wahl FP with a wet noodle #2 nib. The nib writes about a Western EF when not flexed, so I'd like to get a finer nib. My question is: should I have the nib reground to a finer point for calligraphy purposes or should I get another pen entirely? Will the small size of the pen make it harder to control for styles like Copperplate or Spencerian, or does the weight of the all-metal construction make up for it? C
  2. Often times when I see wet noodle wahl's (or any wet noodles for that matter) they lay down too much ink to where when not flexed the toppling amounts of ink make any color of ink just look black and you get no shading/color variation. I heard somewhere that this is because the ink demand for wet noodle's is so much since they flex so easily they are flexed like 40-50% of the time so it needs a lot of ink burping out to keep up with that feed. This is why when you fully flex a wet noodle and write in big letters the ink looks perfectly fine, but once you begin normal writing without flex, sinc
  3. Anyone thought of this before? I'm sure the guys at Bock would be the best people around (possibly some Japanese makers too) to make a decent attempt to replicate a vintage flex nib. From the metulergy to the design to tempering the metal if needed I'm sure they could do it if there was sufficient interest. Potentially, if an order is big enough and enough people comit to an order, I'm sure it's possible..! Interested to hear your thought! Sach

    Hi Everyone!

    Hi everyone, My name is Pierre. I'm from France and I rediscovered penmanship through my 9yo daughter who has had a calligraphy course in school. My everyday handwriting is terrible, however, if I want to write nicely, I can turn nice letters and I discovered that I had an old Pelikan pen with a gold nib that would flex if applying huge pressure. The result was quite nice (to me) so I decided to go hunt for a real flex nib fountain pen (or even better, a wet noodle) and recently bought a couple of pens on *bay. I am still receiving some and the result is quite nice. I will sell back thos
