Modern nibs similar to Parker Vacumatic?

I love my Parker vacumatic. Its nib is the best I’ve ever written with. It seems to be an extra fine/fine and though it doesnt have line variation like a stub or italic/ the line width isn't totally uniform and has some nice character. There is a wonderful almost pencil-like feedback. 

What modern pens would you recommend that have a similar feel? I’m guessing gold nibs? I’m tired of the likes of Kaweco nibs that feel like a nail and not as tactile.

Hello Bambino, I believe that you will not find such predicates in modern pens.

This is one of the reasons why we value our vintage fountain pens so much.

You can go hunting for another Vac or vintage duofold, it will probably bring you more satisfaction.

Why is it that no one is making anything with that feel? I’d imagine the manufacturers would make a lot of money by reproducing the characteristics of those nibs.
