View Full Version : Flexi nib

I have been curious about how a flexi nib would behave, and some time ago ordered a Binder EF flexi nib. Well, it arrived today and I put it into an M600 Tortoise to have some fun.

My goodness. Such versatility. I think I need to experiment.

How have others learnt to explore full flex nibs as compared to the usual semi flex nibs of vintage Pelikan yore?

I would love to learn from others experiences.

Oh, this is fantastic! I am so glad I ordered this as an EF starting point. Cannot get over the variation possible. I have been missing out on so much.

You can stick your stubs where the ink doesn't dry. EF full flex is king.

Of course this may be the excitement of initial exploration...

Sounds like you have found a super fun nib. You will have to post some pictures of the experimentation as you start enjoying using the full flex.

Cool! Did you get the full flex or semi flex? I've been thinking about getting one myself. I'd like to see a writing sample as well.
