These pens and nibs were kindly sent to me by Kevin of FPRevolution.
Scott Franklin kindly sent me these new Franklin-Christoph 14k flex and stub-italic gradient (SIG) nibs that they now sell. I was excited to try these out! Note that the nibs are $115 and $125 respectively, not $150 as I said in the video – my apologies.

I picked up this pen at La Couronne du Comte (don’t forget that BROWN10 gives you 10% off there!) and I find it a fascinating pen. The real question, of course, is: is the nib comparable to vintage flex nibs, as Aurora claims? Watch the full review to find out.
