Writing Style & Nib Appraisal

The nib is a medium cursive Italic, smooth and responsive.

Cursive Italic nibs are very similar to stub nibs, in the line it will deliver - the narrowest portions of an "O" will be at the same 12:00 and 6:00 -except that the line variation will be a little sharper and crisper, because the edges and corners of an italic are sharper, less rounded. It is still a very good tip for everyday writing, note taking and journal entries although it is not as sharp as a formal italic. Cursive italics do have a small and linear "footprint" or contact area and can be somewhat position-sensitive, especially for people new to customized tips.



Recommendations

Recommended for everyday use, calligraphy, greeting cards, signatures, journaling, and all forms of appropriate use. 

Why not pair with a bottle of J Herbin ink? A bright shimmer ink would suit this pen very well!
