This rule also applies to what you are reading right now.
Determining the height of letters is like having a safety net, and paleographers have already done that work for us. A nib is the tip of the pen which controls and directs the flow of ink, and is undoubtably the most important part of the pen. I heartily recommend it.
And the use of the broad-edged, chisel-shaped nib. Posted on June 7, by admin Repetition is the easiest form of organizing. However for my everyday use I prefer a wood or ceramic body where you can really feel the material.
This brought the cost of a nib down - making it affordable for an entirely new class of people - and set the stage for the fountain pen development.
If numbered, the lower the number the finer the point. Remember, writing with fountain pens may be harder to master than a ballpoint, but such is the nature of wonderful things. The arches that create the letters n, m, h, b, and p are also branching from base to waist.
It keeps us grounded. Beautiful rhythms that repeat themselves. Our fountain pens are handmade, and I think handmade is something of value. The body of the lower case letters sit between waist and base.
