Ahavati said:Look what I found cleaning out my desk pens! These must be at least a decade or two old! It's been that long since I've done calligraphy. I used to do certificates for sports teams and other organizations.

Italic and stub nibs! I have at least three more somewhere. They came as a set. I am going to order some ink cartridges and give it a go! I never wrote poetry with them before.

Oooh! I can't wait to see what you produce with those, A. I'm all of a-flutter! 🙃
Why not order converters and bottled ink for them, though, instead of cartridges? That way, you'd have a much greater choice of colours. It's more economical, too. 🖋️🙃🖊️

Hmmm. I haven't had time to order yet I may just do that. But then again . . .

It always came natural to me. I guess I was a scribe in a former life!

Those are beautiful pens!  Itís my dream to get good enough to fill out awards 🤩

I bought one of those curve-tipped pens and I think Iíll give it a try next.

A bottle of ink.
A cartridge.

S and I say the bottled ink route is best, A. 🙃

Well, I'm not a professional nor even a hobbyist! While I do agree ink is better, cartridges will suit my periodic purpose! I used to actually use ink ( Sumi is my preference ) when I painted.

Hahahaha! That pen looks like a surgeon's instrument for winkling something out of a hard-to-reach place, Luna.🙃  An absolutely stunning piece of writing you've produced with it, though Ė well done! Ė and you've now made me want to have a go with one. 💐

Cheers, Luna. It's only a cheap ink, too, relatively speaking. . 🙃
