Flexing Your Pen muscles
Pilot Custom Urushi Fountain Pen Flexible Nib 百乐大黑漆钢笔
Many fountain pen users like to use antique pens as they find the fountain pen nibs exhibit a lot of flexibility not available in newer pens.
Today, pen manufacturers have created a few designs to cater to the needs of pen users who prefer pen nibs that are more flexible; giving the user the feeling of walking on a nice, soft lawn when using the pen.
The ability of the pen nib to flex (bend) is preferred by users as they allow users to create beautiful hand writing such that the up strokes are thinner and the down strokes are broader.
A flexible fountain pen nib 钢笔软笔尖 provides a more comfortable feel when you write rather than many pen nibs that provide different strokes by merely cutting the nibs at various angles like the stub nibs, oblique nibs and to some extend the specialty nibs made by none other than Sailor. Each has their only specific purpose.
One of the latest pen that draws a lot of interest has been the Pilot Custom Urushi Fountain pen百乐大黑漆钢笔(click for illustration). It has a lovely size 30 nib which sits between the majestic Namiki Emperor Size 50 fountain pen nib and the Namiki Yukari Royal size pen nib. The difference here is that beside a really good size 30 nib, a big fountain pen nib by all means, it exhibits a lot of flexibility when you write with the pen.
