Hello From The Hudson Valley


Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm a woodturner located in the Mid Hudson Valley. I do not make pens, but perhaps I should reconsider.


I have a Montblanc Meisterstuck Solitaire Sterling Silver Pinstripe Ballpoint Pen with a B nib. The nib is broad.


I want to improve my handwriting and found some lovely italic scripts. However, since my nib is broad, I can't recreate the look.


Can anyone recommend a nice script for a broad nib? I've tried Cursive Italic and Spencerian but they look clunky. I've tried various script fonts in InDesign and those too look awful - Alex Bruch, Allura, Bickham, Chancery, Edwardian, Freebooter, Pushkin, Scriptina, Snell Roundhand, Tangerine and Zapfino.


Any Advice?


Thank you all so much!

Welcome to this friendly little corner of the universe from a fountain pen user in San Diego. If you have a ballpoint pen (unless you misspoke) you can purchase a refill in a fine point. I'm not a calligrapher so cannot offer more but I'm sure you'll get some useful suggestions.

Do remember that the items on your bucket list have an expiration date.

Hello Jenn and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.

To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!
