A Really Cool Pen Nib



I continue to experiment with fountain pens during short breaks in the daily schedule.

Today I received a Condor nib from Richard Binder at: http://www.richardspens.com/
Its quite amazing. The nib is curved down. Writing with the nib right side up produces a very fine line. Writing with the nib upside down produces a brush like calligraphy stroke. The Condor nib requires very minimal hand pressure to vary the stroke weight. This is one of the most interesting lettering tools I discovered in recent days.
