| Tested with Higgins Eternal...
, May 8, 2014
Tested with Higgins Eternal on bristol board. This nib is a little shorter and
stiffer than their G model. You can get about the same line variations except
the swells aren't as wide. It's just as scratchy as the G and moves around about
the same, quite nicely. Also, the ink holding and flow off the nib seem the same
as the G. If you can handle the scratch this would be a good nib for writing (is
that why it's the school model?). I even popped this into my oblique holder and
it handled well. It's just not ideal for pointed pen script due to the narrower
swells. It's a well made nib. There's just nothing that special about it to me.
Unless you like a stiffer pen and don't need the thicker lines, I think you
could safely skip this one.
