Note: Nib choices, most people are content to use a standard medium or medium italic. Oblique nibs can be helpful when the writer needs a corrective slant to the nib tip. Be cautious when selected these adapted nibs, if you need advice just call us on 01895 630361, remember you have thirty days after purchase to exchange your nib. Please note the finer the italic the less obvious is the thick and thin line definition. Our fine italic only shows a marginal difference between the thick and thin strokes.
