Beating A Tired Horse



Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

OK I'm sure this has been discussed ad nauseum but it's new to me.

 

I recently purchased a Namisu "Nova" with a stainless steel nib which I like very much. I have been intrigued by the much touted titanium nib so I have ordered an "Orion" with a medium titanium nib. What are the advantages of this nib? I love the design of the Namisu which remind me of the Nakaya Piccolo, Nakaya being my shining star.

I have a Nova with both titanium and steel nibs in EF. I find the titanium nib to be softer and to have a pencil-like feedback that I enjoy.

I have a couple of Visconti pen with palladium nibs. They describe the nibs as "dreamtouch" - very soft, needing no pressure.

 

I also have a Namisu and at least one other pen with a titanium nib. Along the same line. While each manufacturer and each nib can be different, I think that's generally how they compare with "normal" gold or steel nibs.

 

If you write with a soft touch, or can train your hand to write like that, you might like it.

If you are used to a ball point, and use enough pressure to make 6 carbon copies, you might not.

 

I think this might be the kind of pen you need to try to figure out.

 

I like mine, though it took a short while to get used to it.

I'll just add that they can take surprising amount of heavy handed abuse. But somehow I suspect that they spring (in the permanent sense) with out any warnings.
