Nib material: Steel
Where to buy: Franklin-Christoph
Franklin-Christoph Model 02 Intrinsic Smoke & Ice).
I fitted the nib into my Franklin-Christoph Model 02 Intrinsic fountain pen. The nib is a #6 and fits into pens that accommodate #6 nibs. This includes Franklin-Christoph Models 02, 03, 19, 33, 40 Panther, and 66 Stabilis, with more to come. I picked one of my favourite inks: Sailor Jentle Apricot (also because some of my other music nibs were inked with this).
With all this in mind, I took the nib for a test run. ... WOW. WOW. LOVE. Fell in love instantly. This 1.9 mm bad boy is crazy smooth and is a sweet, amazing wet writer. Holy smokes. Usually broad stub nibs like this (often 1.5 mm and up) run dry - something I experience with my TWSBI 1.5 mm stub - but this one? No way. The flow keeps up easily and so well, but it doesn't blob ink onto the page, leaving you with excessive bleed through or unexpected feathering. In fact, it's just a smooth application of ink onto the page, wherever the nib makes contact with the paper. The nib is very firm though, so while it's very lovely, wet, and smooth, it has no spring to it.
Now, another thing to note is, because the nib delivers a completely consistent flow across the entire tip, it changes the way inks shade. I have to write a little slower to allow the ink some more time to pool in order to achieve pronounced shading. That doesn't mean the nib prevents shading - it just changes the way the ink is put on the paper so I have to adjust to that.
No brainer, without a doubt, this is a nib you must try. It's a pleasure to use and so much fun to practice calligraphy with. Lovely, wet, and at $35USD, I think it's fairly priced and affordable. Of course, you need a pen that will accommodate the nib. If you don't have one, you may as well pick up a Franklin-Christoph Model 02 Intrinsic while you're at it. Smoke & Ice model.
