We've partnered with Gena Salorino of the Custom Nib Studio to offer you four specialty nib grinds: Superfine, Fine Cursive Italic, Medium Cursive Italic, and Architect. A bit about each nib grind:

Superfine: Equivalent to a Japanese extra-fine, or around 0.3mm in nib width, this grind will be great for anyone who wants a finer grind than anything Pelikan provides from the factory. This will be ideal for anyone who likes to write particularly small, or has needs that require a very fine line. There may be some increased feedback on this grind due to the very small amount of surface area of the tipping that’s touching the paper, so it’s recommended that a very light amount of writing pressure be used when writing with this grind.

Cursive Italic Fine & Medium: If you’re familiar at all with a stub nib, a cursive italic is the same general concept. When writing with it, your cross stroke will be thinner and your down stroke will be wider, giving you a natural “calligraphic” look to your writing without having to change your handwriting. What makes this different from a stub is that the edges of the grind are slightly sharper, so you will see slightly more definition in the stroke lines than you would on a stub. This grind is typically not offered from manufacturers, and you may experience a slightly higher amount of feedback to a more rounded stub nib, as well as an increased sensitivity to the rotation of the pen in your hand. The fine size will provide around a 0.5mm downstroke width, and the medium size will provide around a 0.7mm downstroke width (depending on the paper and ink used), which is something that’s difficult to find on a pen offered from the factory.

Architect: Gena starts with a factory broad nib and grinds away the sides of it, polishing it smooth until it’s like the shape of a blade. This grind enables you to write with a thick cross stroke and thin down stroke, think of it as an inverted stub nib. Architect nibs are particularly dramatic in their line variation when writing print letters, though you can write whatever your personal style and see the variation in the line width pretty easily. They are sometimes also referred to as Hebrew grinds. Architect grinds are not found ground from the factory from any modern manufacturer, so the only way to acquire one is with a custom grind such as what Gena’s done here. She also grinds her architects such that when you flip the nib over and write with it on the reverse side (with the feed facing the sky), it writes as a Superfine. The Architect is sensitive to the particular writing angle used, so you will want to try to hold this pen at around a 50 degree angle for maximum contact of the nib on the page.

As these nibs have been modified, please contact us directly for any warranty issues.
