This modification will create an italic style nib from a standard round Pelikan nib (any model from the M200 to M1000). We recommend starting with either a medium or broad nib but a fine nib can also be modified although the line variation will be correspondingly less. We do not recommend modifying an extra-fine nib although we will be happy to do one on the understanding that not much line variation can be achieved.
A cursive italic nib is similar to a calligraphy nib but has rounded corners to allow normal handwriting (unlike a dip pen nib that requires great care and skill in letter formation). More line variation is achieved compared with a stub nib.
Please allow an extra week for delivery when ordering a custom nib.
