Wow, what a pleasant surprise! I purchased this nib more out of curiosity than
anything else, but I am glad that I did. I wasn't sure what to expect, and did
not have high hopes for this nib, but I am happy to say that I was wrong to
doubt the good folks at Brause. This is an excellent writing nib, with a very
smooth point, and a good ink capacity. I would not use this for pointed pen
calligraphy as the line variation is minimal, but for general writing, this is
now the nib to beat. I was truly shocked by how smoothly this pen writes and
with how thin the lines are. Generally speaking smooth pens tend to put out
wider lines, but this one has excellent thin lines with a buttery smooth flow.
If you are interested in using steel pens for everyday writing/drafting, or you
want some nice consistent lines, then stock up on the Brause #29 "index nib"
