how much money do you want to spend for a good signature pen is the question? I sign mainly with f,m or b and sometimes with stubs or obliques

I think my signature looks much better with a stub nib, aside from the ink color you can tell its a fountain pen, a nice distinguishable characteristic.

Thanks for finally clarifying a signature pen to me.

It is to appear strong when you are not.

 

For fancy, I can see a medium to broad stub or a semi-flex or 'flexi'/maxi-semi-flex in any width.

I do have semi-flex KM's that would do the big and bold trick and still be readable.

 

Philosophically, who would you rather work for a 'Big Bold Scrawl' or "fancy line variation' or simple clear M or ball point user?

 

Would a big bold scrawl chum the water for the knowledgeable predator? :ninja:

 

For legal, I use a M or F for a clear hard to counterfeit signature.I could and have used semi-flex for a slightly wetter line.

 

I can see using a vintage oblique with semi-flex or 'flexi' if I used that pen all the time for that.

That way I could tell at a glance, did I write it or not?

Thank you for your answer :thumbup:

about 500-1000 USD, but I think if I start with cheaper pens for having an idea about pens and nibs, it will be properly. and in this way I will try a lot of options and I believe that I can decide the best decision for fountain pen.

Thank you for your answer. I haven't got a chance to try the nibs yet so I can't comment about your suggestion exactly :blush:

That is a very wise decision.

Try also italian fountain pens like the stip eritruria, omas 360 and montegrappa extra 1930

It depends what size the signature has to be. If you're filling in a form and have to enter into a box then a ballpoint or a finer nib might be more suited.

 

I sign things so infrequently that this is one thing I do not need to worry about.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
