Understood.  :) And agreed.  :)

To Erica, It was certainly not my intention to create a "can of worms" on the forum concerning my vintage nibs (as you understood). Simply that my opinion was needed to clarify my opinion. Nothing has changed - the calligraphers who want to try and use vintage nibs will buy from me or somwhere else: 1) that is their right, and their priviledge, and 2) pay whatever they think is a fair market value. However, how can you put a "fair market value" on an antique anything? I still feel that my prices are fair for what you get. As you know the current prices on newly made nibs does not can you compare the longevity, ease of use and feel of a vintage nib compared to a new model - it just doesn't happen. I will do some price adjusting of my inventory soon, but my views are still the same concerning vintage and new models.
Thank you for your ear. The Forum is still the best place to submit your views - whether they are right or wrong.
Truly, Erica
