Hi

 

I am Jaspreet from India and I grind nibs. I usually post pics of my grinds on instagram ( handle - Jazzorilla). I am new to FPN and i will be posting pics of my grinds here for constructive criticism.

 

Attaching some pics of a Broad Cursive italic grind on a Kanwrite nib which writes as a smooth B on reverse.

Nice looking, and it's always nice to have two sides.

 

IMO double sided is something to look at, with the modern Pelikans (outside the 200).

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

The cheapest lessons are from those who learned expensive lessons. Ignorance is best for learning expensive lessons.

I have a Pelikan m605 with a Broad nib. The back side wrote like a sharp italic. Eventually i ground it again to have a forgiving CI on one side and a sharp italic on the other side.

Great work judging by the photos. Have you considered doing grinds of other people in the future? I get the feeling there's a shortage of nib grinders in your part of the world.

Hi Hasorer. This is Chanchal from Kolkata. Just too elated to find a nibmeister locally. Your works are wonderful. I have a Pelican souveran m600 medium nib. But I feel it's way too broad and wet nib, uncomfortable for my writing style. I was actually planning to buy a fine nib for m600, just when I found your post. Can your expertise be any of my help? Awaiting a response from your side.

Yes, I have been doing grinds for people since couple of months now. Recently ground nibs at a show in Mumbai organized by Fountain Pen association of India. Thank you :)

Great photos. Thank you for posting. I've been messing around with a couple of Pilot Varsities and various micromesh pads in an attempt to turn one into a stub and the other into an architect. I don't have the guts to try my hand at anything more expensive than a Varsity or a Wing Sung.

Nice clean work Jaspreet. I'm still having trouble with the final polish on my grinds. Those pics look great.

An italic grind on a Kaweco Sport BB nib. This was done for someone who does calligraphy and needed maximum line variation.
