I bought a Pilot Plumix a while ago as my first stub nib pen. Though initially I had a bit of fun with it, I find I don't use it much - even while I use my flex nibs quite a lot. I thought it was a little bit of money wasted, until today when i found out I could use it as a flat-head screwdriver. With reborn purpose, I think I'll be using this pen a lot more now. Has anyone else found alternative uses of/for stub nibs, or am I the sole madman here?

(Embracing for hatemail. Don't worry, I do take proper care of my other pens.)

I would think the nib could not handle much torque, so I'm guessing it was used as a screwdriver just one time. Have you considered using the Plumix as a glorified toothpick?

People like different things.

 

I like stub/italic nibs because I like the character they give to my handwriting. I particularly like oblique nibs - same reason, though they look different than stubs. Either one takes a small amount of learning to understand how they work best. Neither may ever be for you.

 

Instead of ruining a perfectly good pen that doesn't suit you, why don't you give it away to someone who would use it, or at least experiment with it.
