how i love flex nibs!!! they are so challenging to use but costs quite a fortune so this is my first and hopefully i can have my next one coming in few months time.
will take some time before i get the hold of calligraphy again...
by the way, this is care of my friend au who bought in the stuffs.. her kindness and love of pens too!
after reading the reviews on the nib creaper : these are refillable deep cut triangle nibs and stylographic roller fountain pens with ebonite feed and piston filler.
the nib does not really flex much and so my hands are working more than they should when writing. i understand that flex writing really depends on the nibs. i also read that vintage flex nibs are way softer. but of course, i can bear with this no problem with it. its just i also want to feel the bearing on a vintage one soon.
i will have to replace the ink ( the capacity is small ) and so i have to watch some videos on how to disassemble and clean it.
the downstrokes does not have much thick lines and i think it goes for the flex points which is not as, well, not as vintage-ey but for a good price as such and for a beginner like me, i can succumb to it.
writing on moleskine sketchpad. might bleed a little but tolerable.
