Italix Churchman’s Prescriptor Nib Lineup

Mr Peter Ford of MrPen very kindly sent me the complete lineup of 10 nibs he sells for the Churchman’s Prescriptor model.  A very exciting opportunity to demonstrate how each of these nibs write.

A kind thank you to Alyssa from Nella Cucina who special ordered this bag for me and made sure I received it within a short time frame.

The Inkcyclopedia

In 2013-2014 I did a series of weekly videos entitled The Inkcyclopedia.  In every installment, I would show off an ink in quite some detail, using several nibs and doing a couple of tests with each ink.

I have decided to make this series of videos available on my own YouTube channel now, so that (new) viewers can watch them there.  Bear in mind that these are older videos, so their quality is not that of more recent videos.

Enjoy, and find an index to all inks covered in the Inkcyclopedia here.
