Hello, I am looking for a nib, that has a fine vertical downstroke and a medium horizontal stroke. I know italic nibs meet these requirements, if you write cursive. But if you try to do it with straight vertical strokes, you would have to hold the pen very awkwardly to get a fine line. I am looking for either the general term of the type of nib, that meets this requirements, if there is one, or a specific pen/ nib. I attached a picture, of how a "T" would look like, written by a nib like this. (Sometimes the inkflow of my nib isn't proper, so this comes about, and I love when this happens)

Has anyone used diamine imperial or MB violet? If so do you think these might fit the bill. Any suggestions welcome I'm in the UK so noodlers and PR are harder to procure. Thank ye all

It's funny how an image, can make you start collecting something. But , fri
I have spent the last few weeks trying to find the perfect set of greens for drawing and coloring (the amount of variation in natural color is endless 0_0 Four is barely enough, lol) I finaly chose my two lighter-end greens-- Diamine Jade Green and Light Green-- but I'm having trouble on the mid-level and the darkest. I finally settled, after testing about 15 greens, on De Atramentis Cucumber...buttttt... it's scented and comes in a tiny bottle I will constantly be re-ordering The mid-level green, whatever I choose, will get the most use, so a larger bottle would be preferable, and a non-scen
