TL;DR: Great job Ivan, keep it up.

Thank you for the feedback! I was worried since I am right handed and you are left handed that there might be issues. Then I figured that is something that you deal with on a regular basis. I did try to write with it left handed, sort of. :)

A concise and informative review. Your writing shows a nice stubby italicy flair. PR EbonyGreen turns to a rather attractive green when diluted.

Thanks for the review.

You know, I never really took a full picture of that pen because I thought the ink windows were really ugly. Maybe if they had actually cut the plastic better so the windows showed through consistently, it would have worked.

Here is the only picture I have of it while I was working with it.

I have never ground a nib this fast. 5 mins flat. Writing sample next. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ivan_romero/8522240562/) by IvanRomero (http://www.flickr.com/people/ivan_romero/), on Flickr

I found another. You can sort of see what I mean about the ink window.

Nib on the right is stock, nib on the left is my freshly ground stub. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ivan_romero/8522283488/) by IvanRomero (http://www.flickr.com/people/ivan_romero/), on Flickr

Awesome pics, KI. Thanks! It brings the process to life.

I have a few of the same tools. Is that a Dremel or some other kind of drill?

It is a Dremel. Purchased specifically for nib grinding.
