Above is a sample of how the very wet Christoph Nib fares on the cheapest paper I have yet to encounter. I don't have a macro lens, but here goes my best shot at approximating the appearance of the nib. It is beautiful without being gaudy. A Gothic or Old English capital "C" is present, contrary to the "F" generally presents. The music nib has three tines, and the feed has two channels. Rays of what appear to be sunshine are bursting from the center of the nib. The nib does not contain a breather hole, and this has not seemed to affected the flow of the pen. This will hopefully give you an idea of just how much variation can be had with this nib. I estimate about 5-6 times the cross-stroke on the down stroke. Very impressive. This should give you an idea of the size of the nib's "line". It is pretty true to the 1.9 indicated by the people at Franklin Christoph. I have yet to experience a skip, the performance is truly amazing. The main drawback is that this nib is impossible to use on cheap paper because of its wetness. I love using this nib to practice calligraphy or just write really big in cursive. It's a great nib for brainstorming as well as bold signatures.
