Very impressive work, Andrew.

 

The 3-tined nib must be a particular challenge to grind while maintaining nib alignment.

What's your feedback on their performance? I'm really looking forward to trying one!

 

Hi! After communicating with the support service, I have to apologize to the community. Despite to this nib was received in August and is identical design to in-house nib, this is a Bock product. I am very dissatisfied with them and if I didn’t know how to correct and tune the nibs I would be very upset. My opinion on this nib on link above, to the review of Homo Sapiens.
