I damaged the nib on my Pelikan M605 so ordered another from Richard Binder. Same spec .5mm cursive italic. But I’m afraid to confess that the photo is a complete deception. The writing is from the 26th using an M215 with another .5mm cursive italic from Mr. Binder. Since I use Noodler’s bulletproof inks, I can never get a clean shot of the nib because of the inks’ propensity to “creep.” My nibs all look like kindergarten Christmas ornament projects (cheery most of the time). So I set this up and took a photo BEFORE putting any ink in it.
