    I very much enjoy building Frankenpens. I have quite a few of them: an Advance with incorrect cap and a Conklin Toledo nib, a Pitman College pen with a Swan no 1 Calligraph nib, A summit 75 with a No 4 Waterman's Ideal nib, and quite a few others. My latest one is this early Sheaffer Balance fitted with a big Osmia Supra nib:Balance Frankenpen S.jpg

    I have put a vintage Eagle nib into a Pelikan M200 with good results...

    You are far too generous, but thanks. I call my handwriting Frankenscript: it's a mix of Italic and school handwriting with a few curlicues here and there!

    Call it what you will, but I wish I had the talent. Also, I am somewhat hampered by being a lefty, which interferes with proper use of flex nibs.
