    Dear Mr Pelikan

    Dear Mr Pelikan,, Having shown us that you still know how to make delightfully soft nibs (M1XXX), mais oui please have similar nibs for your lovely, and popular, M8XX model. Thank you so much! Your pal Karmachanic P.S. Love you!!
  2. I just wanted to know how nib manufacturers make "soft x" (x = F, FM, M, etc.) gold nibs vs "x" gold nibs. Is it a material difference? A temperature-based process? ,,,? (I've looked for a thread on this, but could not locate one. Please redirect me if this subject has been addressed previously. Thanks.)
  3. I picked up a Justus 95 last week. I was not expecting to like it as much as I do but it is one of the few Pilot offerings that I get along with. The section is long enough to be comfortable in my hand and I like that the transition from barrel to section is subtle. Weight and balance are good, even when posted. I find that Pilot's Fines tend to flow dry from the box, and exude a toothy feel on a counterclockwise stroke. This one was wet and smooth, whether it was set to H or S. A full flex pen this is not, but I like their expression of a soft nib. If you've been thinking of the Justus, I'd say it's worth a test drive. I also wouldn't be surprised if one ended up following you home.
