Diamine Dark Brown with Lamy Safari 1.1mm Italic

New calligraphy nib and new ink. I'm generally quite fond of this ink, though it's obviously not dark as such. It has nice shading as well as a good colour, particularly on decent paper, which I think would make it a good ink for calligraphy, which is something that I'm thinking of learning. If you're not opposed to a relatively light ink I think it would also make a fair day-to-day one; it's quite distinguished.

So you're learning calligraphy just to get laid?

It is an interesting and elegant creative form. Finger control, though, you know.

You have lovely penmanship.

Very nice.

Masculine, yet on the verge of pretty.

The colour is very nice, but you need a non-lined page.

Why thank you missus. I have to say though that there's something about italic nibs that makes one's writing automatically look nicer. Apparently flexible nibs have this effect even more, though very few pens have flexible nibs these days.
