Thanks Keith, and THANK YOU JAMES.

 

James it is a humbling experience to share space with your exemplars.

I hope that you overcome your health problems and keep showing us what a real caligrapher can produce.

 

Keith I noticed a very nice sample of yours around - Even if it was not very visible I could see a very nice writing character. Please show us more.

You are most welcome, Antonios. I too noticed Keith's exemplar -- it was very nice indeed.

I don't go for flexible nibs or looped styles, buit Antonios has done a great job with his nib and style!

Hi Kate,

 

Since many of us are posting samples of their hands here (I wonder who started it all :rolleyes: ), it would be a great idea if you could comment on areas where legibility can be improved. And to which section of your book should we make reference. I know my regular cursive needs a lot of work or repair :(

Antonios,

 

You have reason to be proud. Wonderful!

 

Though I'm not normally a big fan of pink, I love these pens. I have one, which is out on loan.

 

I'm sorry we missed one another at the Philadelphia Pen club meeting, when I would have liked to compare various nibs.

Antonios:

 

Thank you for the lovely sample. I fear that if I wrote with anything more flexible than a nib which resembles a 10d nail the result would be (a) a very sprung nib; (B) a very unhappy me; and © a huge blot on the paper. This is why a have a great deal of respect for you and the others who can do such delicious writing with a flex nib.

 

Thank you also for the links below your signature. Very interesting ... indeed!

 

By the way: for duffers like me, What is a "pink" nib?

There will be no crisis this week. My calendar is already full.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
