Re: Do you find your taste in nibs changes?
At one time it was stub retip mania for me---if it could be made ten times fatter then even better. However I found it tiring to write ten words to a page and use up 5 ml of ink doing so. Lately my nibs do not run more than 3 mm for daily use, usually between 1-2 mm. I use nibs from needle points to extra double broad retips: but for me the all important governing criterion is the rest of the pen: the nib must feel absolutely natural to the rest of the pen. So sensitive I am to this that I cannot use certain nibs in certain pens such as ones that accept a variety of interchangeable nibs by screwing them in.
