These pens actually improved...

These pens actually improved my otherwise atrociously illegible and embarrassing
handwriting! Didn't think that was possible! I find the 0.5 nib hits the sweet
spot. Not too thin so as to be scratchy and not to broad to be messy. My theory:
the fine nib slows down the hand to allow more control over the handwriting,
otherwise the hand slops all over the paper contributing to sloppy handwriting.
Wish Pilot would make a 0.5 blue refill for the Cavalier! I have several 'go to'
pens I use daily but this one tops the list. I agree with the comment that
experimentation is needed with different nib sizes from the various brands
because 0.5 for one brand is not the same as 0.5 from another brand. At least
that's my experience.
