I have to agree with what the other reviewers said about temperament and quality control. Both the Gillotts I received, this one and the 404, had separated tines. I really wanted to like this one. It has nice hair lines, and nice spread in the tines, but I couldn't get it to start and the bent tines made it even more difficult.

The quality control isn't great, but this is one of my favorite pens for Spencerian. The hairlines are remarkably fine and precise - as long as you keep your touch light you will be pleased with the results!

Excellent Nib - quality control could be better
Posted By: Salman Khattak
These are excellent nibs when you get a good one. Every once in a while you run into one that is rather temperamental on the upstrokes but the good ones are just superb.
Not a beginner's nib but those with a light touch would fall in love with the good ones.
