Thank you. You are right. I should check with Fritz-Shimpf

 

Thanks. The 146 model and the 149 had "identical" nibs in your opinion (in the sense that the intent was that the nibs have similar features in terms of flexibility and width, etc- only the sizes would be different)?

The nibs are quite different. The 146 had a regular 14K 146 nib with an italic grind. From the Fritz Schimpf website:

 

The nib, the heart of the fountain pen, is a 14-K Gold Bicolor nib with a special cut defined by us. This spring grinding causes the spring to offer different stroke widths. Feathers of this kind are called Italic feathers. More than fifty years have passed since Montblanc last offered an Italic feather. 

Due to these different stroke widths, Italic nibs emphasize the individual characteristics of each handwriting and create a unique and unmistakable typeface. Thanks to the selected stroke widths, the vertical stroke width is approx. 0.70 mm, the horizontal stroke width approx. 0.30 mm, the Montblanc x Fritz Schimpf special edition Italic 100 piston fountain pens are ideal for smaller and medium font sizes.

The 149 is a modification of the 149 Calligraphy nib, so it becomes a flexible italic nib:

 

SPECIFICATIONS 

Without pressure, the line width, as measured on Fritz Schimpf Feinpost paper and written with Fritz Schimpf Fritzrot ink, is approximately 0.18 mm horizontally and 0.80 mm vertically. The maximum vertical line width is approximately 1.60 mm. 

These dimensions are ideal for highly individualized cursive writing, printing or sketching. 

The upper surface of the yellow gold 18-K / 750 gold nib is engraved with the graceful Montblanc flex nib curves. Discreetly engraved on the left shoulder of the nib is “The Expressive”; and on the right “Fritz Schimpf”.

I'm still trying to figure out how to list all my pens down here.

      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.
