The pen you retipped for me to a 1.1 mm stub arrived back today, and I immediately inked it up and took it for a ride on my favorite paper. Wow! The nib is glassy-smooth and writes with just a hint of feedback, exactly the way I like it. And the line variation is fabulous! I flipped the nib over and was pleasantly surprised that it even wrote well upside down! You just made me fall in love with this pen again. I look forward to using this pen in my personal correspondence. Thanks again!
