Care To Post Your Dreamtouch Nib Writing Samples?



Recommended Posts

I'm going to get a bronze Homo Sapiens for Christmas and I'm having a hard time deciding which nib. I'm leaning strongly toward XF, as I do with most soft nibs just because the line variation is all that much more dramatic when you start with a tiny line, but I'm also considering the F, and in the other direction, the BB.

 

I'd love to see some Dreamtouch writing samples (of all the different sizes), with and without line variation. And I'm not expecting much variation out of this nib—that's what vintage Watermans are for. :)

 

Thanks!

i know this for sure that you cant get XF ( EF) in midi version i asked long time ago

 

regular bronze and steel regualr sized and bigger will let u have EF on it

just my 2 cents

'The Yo-Yo maneuver is very difficult to explain. It was first perfected by the well-known Chinese fighter pilot Yo-Yo Noritake. He also found it difficult to explain, being quite devoid of English.

So we left it at that. He showed us the maneuver after a sort. B*****d stole my kill.'

Thanks! Definitely getting the bigger version regardless of nib choice. :D

I believe the Bronze fountain pen is only available in the large size. Dreamtouch nibs tend to be wet. My EF has a point toward the finer end of European EF's, but the wet nib combined with a wet ink can result in a line at the broad end of the EF spectrum. The Dreamtouch nibs are soft and springy, and with effort and courage can deliver a bit of line variation, but they don't snap back like a vintage flex nib and I'd worry about springing (permanently bending) the nib.

Hrm. Here are a few examples that I found of my writing. Sorry for the lousy handwriting. The samples are of a very gushy 14k M nib, one rather dry 14k F nib, three different 18k EF nibs, and a 23k EF nib (the brown colored ink).

Current Wishlist:

Visconti, Visconti, and...more Visconti! (And some ST Duponts too). (Ok fine, getting on the Omas and Montblanc trains now too. Toot toot.) (And maybe on the Montegrappa one too, but only for the Miyas.)

Sorry for late response, but maybe this could help...

Wow! Thanks for posting the great examples! I officially have an extra fine Bronze Homo Sapiens on the way. :D

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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.
