Has anyone tried one of these Vindolanda pens made from 2000 year old oak dug up at the archaeological site in northeast England? I think its a cartridge converter pen. https://www.vindolanda.com/shop/vindolanda-wood-ink-pen From a Reddit post I found it looks like a F/M-ish nib. https://www.reddit.com/r/fountainpens/comments/csjvti/my_first_fountain_pen_made_by_david_wayper_out_of/
SIrNibCollector posted a topic in Calligraphy DiscussionsWould a Pilot 78G BB or B be suitable for these hands? If not, could you recommend an alternative in the same price range? I know I've seen it chiefly recommended for Italic hands, but Pickering mentions a Rotring Art pen with a sharpened nib in his exemplar and those seem to be primarily used for Italic penmanship as well. Since the hands don't have massive variations in lineweight, I don't think I'll need it either, though it's possible they're subtle and I just don't yet have the eye to pick up on them. http://www.jp29.org/00cal03.jpg https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a
