After 14 straight days of working with a sharpish Binder .5mm italic on my Pelikan M605, I hereby abandon it for now.  I can’t write a consistent cursive with it because the sharp edge imposes such an influence on the motion of the nib that I can’t maintain a consistent, rhythmic motion necessary for regular writing.  So back to the Pel M620 with a rounder and friendlier nib.

The above words were part of my last sentence before going to sleep last night.  I will return to the instrument, but I need a break.  I feel like I’ve been fighting with something…
