Here's a quick writing sample with different nibs. My apologies for the quality, I used the camera on my phone in poor lighting.
This is the Lamy 2000
with Medium (M)
, Oblique Broad (OB)
and Double Broad (BB)
None of these nibs have been customised, they're factory default. If you click on the photograph you should be able to make out the differences in the cut.
Nibs come in many styles and are always a matter of preference, and preferences change. I use each of these pens regularly and right now I find the M
boring, the OB
nice because it suits my tendency to write on an angle and the BB
fun because it lays down a lot of ink.
(The inks are Iroshizuku kon-peki
, Lamy Blue
and Iroshizuku shin-kai
in descending order and the photograph does none of them any justice.)
