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.

This pen was kindly sent over by Franklin-Christophh – thank you! I like the very-popular antique glass finish of this pen, and Model 66 is a very nice model: large, comfortable, and with a special, Mike Masuyama-tuned nib.
Now here’s something truly special: a nice, modern music nib. Expect 0% flex, but it does offer serious line variation, being a 1.9 mm italic. Three tines, two slits, superb ink flow, and a wonderfully smooth writing experience.
