    Why did it need a nibsmith if itís such a great writer?

    A nibmeister can make any nib write perfectly...even a cheap Jinhao.

    sure...how does that change whether London Fog is a daily writer for me or not? I was replying to original question -> Is it is an ornament or a good writing instrument -> For me it is a good writing instrument. Correct Size, quality, feel in hand, weight, and i love the look of it. Also very functional filling mechanism. It is a well made product for daily writing. And this one did come out of the box with an excellent "M" nib. So i did not get that nib ground. I bought a new nib to get CI grind :-)

    I believe he was referring to your original post where you said this:

The nibs needed some work before they wrote well, but i hardly use any of my other pens. I do not see much topics about visconti's in forums. Are there any other visconti exclusive users out there?

    Even a fake Hero costing £1 for a 10 pack can be made into a fantastic writer after sending it to a nibmeister. It's how the pen writes out of the box that matters.

    I am not generalizing nor trying to get any one to agree with me. For me London fog was and is a good writing instrument. :-)
    I do not mind some nib adjustment to make the pen write the way i want. It is part of the fountain pen experience for me.
    I never had any pens which wrote the way i want out of the box and i own many pens (Visconti, Pelikan, MBs, Pilots...). They were all functional, but did not give me the joy of writing.
    MB Rouge Coral with a Fine nib was the only pen which came close to my perfect nib preference.

    I own 14 Visconti pens, I love them all! The only nib I needed to send back was the chiantishire. It wrote fine, just not wet enough for my liking and Visconti gladly accepted it back to work on the Nib. Iíve owned and used almost every pen company from this tier or price point and non seem to check as many boxes as a Visconti. They are the pens I now exclusively use and buy.

    Couldn't agree more with those expressing positive views about Visconti, a unique and original penmaker. I have a modest seven Visconti pens, dating from early models up to the HS Bronze. Marvelous, beautiful and original designs that function superbly.

    I own 8 Visconti fountain pens. The ones with the internal fillers are in my top 5 pens with only a Pelikan claiming a top 5 spot. The HS is the favorite of them all.
