    Artist V.s. Nibs

    Hello, I go by Pocket and I am an artist in Florida, new to the very overwhelmingly endless journey of acquiring my first fountain pen. I don't plan on collecting many pens in the near future. I really just need a specific kind of pen that meets the requirements my new projects demand, and my curiosity brought me to think about fountain pens. What I am looking for is an extremely fine nib. I am not a line drawing artist, I am the exact opposite. I only draw with dots, small dots. The finer the dots I'm able to producer the more control I have over the textures of the subjects I draw. The tactile approach is broken down to the pixelated atomizing nature of things. Like a thread count in fashion, I'm looking for the Super200 of pens, if not higher. If I cannot acquire this pen because it has not been made available, I plan to make it. Passionate fans via comment sections and Youtube videos, the collectors, the admirers, they lead me to believe that this is the community that can guide me into finding and/or building this pen. I'm no longer the only overly sensitive nerdy that needs a specific pen .... I have already reached out to NIBGRINDER who has helped me a bit, might be able to grind any nib of any pen I purchase down to a beak or a Saibi-Togi . An amazingly kind Customer Service Specialist via GOULET has brought me to this Network because I voiced that I didn't want to harass them with all my strange questions. Lets get to it. I need a pen finer than the one I use ... lets start there - I currently use a Copic Multiliner black ink 0.03 pen (felt tip?) I usually have to wait for them to fade gradually from excessive use before I can get a relatively super super fine dot. ​Ah ! I need a dry pen - so more of those ridges in the feed to slow the capillary action. I feel like a wet pen defeats the purpose. With that said I want to refrain dipping pens .... I've been doing some research correct me if I'm wrong. What I think I am looking for is a long lasting, durable, beautiful, well respected fountain pen, ultra ultra fine tip, for dotting artwork, I do not enjoy dipping so definitely need cartridge or converter. customizable maybe - as long as it does not compromise the quality of the pen? I'm really not too sure how to put value on these pens I just see price ranges and try to stay away from the cheaper ones ???? I guess ... But, I might be looking into a Squared Nub ... "what?" ..... yeah - Here's what I'm thinking, if it is possible for me to use the razor sharp squared off corners to stipple with, that's the sharpest edge I've head of thus far and as long as I'm not stabbing my paper like a maniac I should be able to draw within damaging the paper to oblivion. Only thing is, I'm not sure if those corners are capable of feeding the ink and activating capillary response. I can't find that answer anywhere.
