Rover 14k Extra Fine nib: a writing sample

Further to my post yesterday about the vintage Pelikan M400, here is a writing sample to show the versatility of the extra fine nib.

The nib is a Rover, 14k gold, in extra fine. (update: a “Rover 585 EXTRA PO.45” to be precise).The ink is Conway Stewart Tavy by Diamine, which I like a lot.


The paper is from a Silvine exercise book. It was written on my knee in the park in Golders Green, basking in 5 degrees Celsius today, while last night’s frost and ice lingers in the shade.

Having a wonderful pen and ink combination like this makes me yearn for better handwriting.
