Kanwrite Nibs



Recommended Posts

Just email them at kanpurwriters@gmail.com and ask about a price list. They do PayPal and can send you a price list with all their products on it. I recently bought three no 35 BB nibs in Jowo #6 threaded housing and it was a simple and painless process.

Cool, thanks for the link!

Recently, I purchased a Kanwrite Medium flex, and boy what a delight it has been. I especially love its long steely nibs that 'splits' as you write.

Attached a sample.

Thanks for your writing sample. Looks like a great pen/nib to write with. I am considering this pen/nib...now positioned as full flex with the cut-out slits. Ryan

Ask for the ultraflex nib with an ebonite feed. The other available flex nibs are too stiff.

Hmm I kinda agree and not agree at same time. The normal flex nib in no 6 nib unit is just fine and offers line variation from Fine to Broad easily and is very easy to use daily to get better results, although I too felt it was stiff at start, it has mellowed nicely and is very nice to play with and write with in daily writing without taking the professional feel of writing away, Ebonite feed, completely agreed with you here. Though I suspect this kind of flex would not be possible for any smaller nibs with flex mod. Though for further variation as pointed out ultraflex are better but normal flex is not too stiff either.

 

A small image to show line variation, was taken when I was discussing with a friend on flex nibs 5 or 6 months back, was fun and fruitful discussion, I kept the image for future reference as its easy to show the variation, just ignore the context of it😅

all done with Kanwrite flex fine with waterman serenity blue (darkened ink).

I agree that there is a little flex while writing normally, but pushing just ruins my calligraphy. I am used to writing with dip pens which are a lot more "flexy".

 

The ultraflex initially did not work because it came with a plastic feed.

      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.
