okay. I might be crazy but I swear I have a Sailor H-B nib that was either mis-stamped or ground after the fact even though it came right off the shelf from Pen Chalet.

This is my first review in here. Actually, it is my first pen review ever. I have purchased the Sailor Profit Demo pen with the 21k Zoom nib. Why? Sailor because I have read a lot about it and the specific nib because it looked interesting and versatile. As I usually tend towards the medium and the broad nibs I thought it would be good to try the combination of them (and more) in one nib. First impression (9/10) I am usually a fan of classic pens. This means that the transparent pen with the gold trims would not usually be my first choice. Would it not been transparent, It would be a cl
