Here are two vintage nibs - part of an order I just received from www.pendemonium.com
When I use a fountain pen, I want a very smooth writing nib with little to no feedback. However, when I'm using dip nibs, I enjoy the sound of the scratch, scratch, scratch of the nib on paper. The sound can be surprisingly loud, too :-)
The Gillott #303 is very nice - very flexy. The Hunt #100 is just fabulous for flex!
|Scratchy, but that's just how some dip nibs write.|
|Such fun to use this nib!|
