What's new

Favoring broad, oblique, and stub nibs. Anyone else?

I've always preferred a bold line that also exhibited a nice flair, For me that's meant broad, oblique, and even stub nibs on my pens. As a sexagenarian I'm past collecting and am quite content with what I've acquired over the past decades. My favorite remains the Le Man 100 as my collection undoubtedly reflects.

Any other fans of "expressive" nibs?

Satisfied?? We can change that. :wink2:


Seriously, though, check out the 'specialty' nibs made by Sailor. There's lots of "bold with flair" stuff there. One of the great nibs they do is the "cross music" ... which writes more or less like a music nib turned 90 degrees, so the horizontal is broad and the vertical is narrow.

The Nagniata nibs are somewhat similar, but not such a huge & wet line, more of a M/F, M, or B options rather than BBB. Certainly worth checking out.
