The nib itself is more...
, November 2, 2013
The nib itself is more of a stub than an italic, somewhere between a stub and
cursive italic. It's a bit more stub like than the TWSBI 1.1 nib. It's not just
the nib/feed assembly, but also includes the sleeve the nib/feed assembly fits
into. I. e., it's the entire bottom of the pen. It screws into the barrel.
The nib is very smooth. The feed needed to be seated a bit more tightly in
order to restrict the ink flow, but after that it produced acceptable line width
variation rather than a line of ink with a visible meniscus.
All in all I like it. Eventually I'll pull the nib/feed assembly out and
install it in the OEM part. Because I have a green Ice Sport I'm used to seeing
the green sleeve. I would have preferred to receive only the nib/feed assembly,
but that's probably the way Kaweco ships these. It's not hard to take apart.
I'm happy to have a pocket pen with a "calligraphy" nib.
