This is my introductory post, on my first blog. I think this will be fun! I heard about this site through my fountain pen hobby, so I will also mention that today I had mail: Gravitas Ultra Titanium with a flex titanium nib. Shout out to this innovative brand! 🖋️

@inknideas Ooh, I'm very curious about those flex titanium nibs. I'll be interested to hear your impressions. The question of whether flex is possible in a modern pen is still open, I think!

@junethomas I've been using the titanium flex today and it seems to me very similar to other steel modern flex nibs I have used. It takes a lot of pressure to achieve line variation and railroading is easy. I like the way the nib writes, but I am not sold on the flex aspect. I have high expectations though, since my favorite flex is a waterman 56.

@inknideas I’m so afraid of springing the nib that i can’t bring myself to buy one!
