The distributor of Platinum (and Lamy) in Canada generously lent me this tester set of Platinum nibs, which means I can give you an overview of all of these nibs!
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.
With all the new flex nibs hitting the market recently, I thought I would compare the Aurora 88 with the brand’s new 14k “vintage flex” nib, the Franklin-Christoph Model 66 with the new 14k flex nib, and the good old classic Pilot Falcon (metal body) with 14k flex nib. Let’s see how these three nibs fare face-to-face.
These Nakaya nibs were kindly lent to me by Iguana Sell – thank you!
This nib was kindly sent to me by a viewer! It fit on my Pelikan M200 Gold Trim Demonstrator, but will also fit on other M200 models.
This is a very, very special nib!
I won this nib in a Monday Matchup from Goulet Pens on Instagram! It’s a 1.5 mm stub nib and was delivered on a Jinhao x750 Stainless Steel body.
These Aurora nibs were kindly lent to me by Iguana Sell – thank you! I know the broad nib isn’t in this list, but I have reviewed an Aurora Ipsilon which has a broad nib. There will be a review of a gold broad nib coming up in early January!
I borrowed a full set of Sailor nibs from a friend, so here goes with a line up of nibs! As you can see, this is an enormous lineup of videos, so taking pictures of all of these nibs and writing samples in an enormous chore. If you really want to see a picture of a specific writing sample or something, let me know, and I’ll see what I can do.
