Franklin-Christoph Flex Nib Teaser Video

Franklin-Christoph sent me their new flex nib (14kt gold, fine) and their SIG flex nib (14kt gold, SIG grind, fine) to play with. This is not sponsored - I was not asked to make this video or even post a picture of the nib or writing samples. I was just feeling creative and had shot a few videos and pics, so I sat down to share some of that fun!

Visit Franklin-Christoph for a flex nib of your own, and I definitely recommend the SIG grind. It's a lovely combination of italic and flex! Please visit me on YouTube and subscribe & like if you enjoyed it!

  • Peppermint... it makes me think of mint leaves in some romantic Christmas setting.
  • Easy to fill from bottle.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Amazing sheen.
  • Gorgeous color with great shading!
  • Shades well.
  • Looks so good in a clear pen!
  • The label on top of the cap of the bottle has the name of the ink printed on it, as well as a tiny ink swab so it's easy to spot in your ink drawer/cabinet.
  • Easy to store bottles.
  • Robert Oster is a really nice guy, so I feel happy to support his creations.

Peppermint ticks all the right boxes for me. I think this is a gorgeous green, especially in broad, wet nibs. It's so deep and saturated, and the sheen is so delectable. It's such a seductive ink! It shades really well because it's not so dark that it's just a dark green, so you get a nice green range. Also awesome for art purposes.

I received this item free of charge to help Notemaker select a winning ink, but I'm also now using it for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.
