It's Cursive Italic Day!

Read important information about Custom Ground Nibs and read testimonials.

We are pleased to offer a selection of fountain pens with custom ground nibs to suit everyone's unique style of writing. We hope you'll scroll down a bit and peruse our offering of customized fountain pens and nib units. These are listed in sections according to the type of nib that has been ground. If you don't see what you're after, check out the link below with information about custom grinding your pen or another pen from our website.

Please note: Writing with a custom ground pen will NOT suddenly make you a calligrapher, any more than being handed a saw will make you a master carpenter! It takes practice, sometimes a lot of practice! Many customers like writing with custom ground pens simply because they are smooth writers.

Some find that their handwriting improves with just a little work, and practice with a book like Write Now, while others continue with the Tamblyn and Ziller series of penmanship books. A good place to start is with Write Now. And keep in mind, if you have large handwriting, you're going to see the most variations with broader nibs. If your handwriting tends to small or tight letters, finer nibs will be better for you.

The measurements of the nib widths in item descriptions are the width of the tip of the nib. They do not denote the width of a written line. It's nearly impossible to gauge what width your written line will be since many things affect this; paper, ink and pressure applied to the nib. In general, and there are certainly variances since no two nibs are identical, these guidelines may help you relate the width measurements to modern day nib designations commonly used by manufacturers.
