See the serrated edge on the clip?  Those teeth hold onto any pockets tightly

    1. *blush* Marianne, thank you for your compliment! It takes improvisation and wasting a lot of ink to experiment ;)

  2. +1 with Baking with Marianne's comment.

    Besides, I really wonder why Rotring stop making fountain pens. Why God why???

    1. Thank you for the compliment. I think everyone is capable writing nicely as long as they take the time to practice :)
      Rotring still has Art Pen, which comes in several italic sizes. In my search for one, I have found some here and there at random places. If I recall correctly, Rotring might be easier to be located in Germany?

  5. Where can you find a replacement nib for this pen? My nib came loose from the housing and I need to either replace same or find a repair center. Great pen!!!

    1. Hi Phillip,
      Good news! I have contacted rOtring and it turned out that they still have couple nibs for Initial flowing around. All you need to do is to fill out an online form and attach a picture of your feed, so they can provide you with repair options. Here is the customer service contact form: https://www.rotring.com/en/contact-us
      Best of luck!
