    Hi, considering that you want it to write well on arrival, I would suggest te Nibsmith who will tune the nib for you at no extra charge.

    Understand the Dan Smith suggestion, but you may want to get price from Marco at Novelli.it to compare pricing. No custom tuning, but he does test nib before posting out shipment. Have enjoyed dealing with him, but also can say the same about Dan.

    Highly advisable to have the nibs profesionally tested by the seller. I had to return a Divina Blue TWICE because of bad nibs. Third time was OK.
    BTW I will not be buying Viscontis for some time, thank you very much.

    Same here, the main one I wanted to love, but the nib just wouldn't work right for me was a Dinvia Desert Spring with the 18K nib. My second Visconti wasn't bad, a Homosapien steel maxi, but wasn't all that great in my opinion nib wise, with a 23k Pd nib.

    Love the material, design, etc, but just can't quite seem to wow me when it comes to whats important. Much preferred my Aurora Afrika to either Visconti, especially better filling.

    If you get one, have the nib professionally tuned or it can lead to buyer's remorse.

    I ended up buying from rozmenko on eBay... I know. But I have to say I had an amazing experience. He tuned the nib and it arrived in three days from Down Under. It writes like a dream. And the price was unbeatable.
