My verdict is still out on this one. I bought it because I am working on Spencerian script and because the name seemed to say it all, I thought it would be perfect. Well, it is ok, but didn't give me the fine lines and swells I was hoping for. Maybe I need to give it a better chance and learn its touch. Right now, I am sold on the Gillott 170 for my Spencerian work. I will keep experimenting with this nib, however.
