Writing Style

A brilliant example of a 14k gold semi flex nib, offering line variation from an extra fine to a broad. 

Please take a look at the writing sample in the photo gallery for a closeup. 

It appears the nib tines were over cut in production, as the slit extends through the breather hole into the body of the nib. This lends for a remarkably flexy writing experience, but special care must be taken not to over exert the nib by pressing too hard.
