I don’t have a suggestion (sorry) but I wanted to bump this up for you because I’m interested in this as well!

I’ve gotten several trying to find one I like for the wedding.  I can tell you I do not like Chronicle.  The nibs are inconsistent.  There is a post on pro where (I think it is) Laura Hooper recommends a set on a site that she uses.  It’s not that expensive, so I might start there.

Ugh, now I have to go calligraphize envelopes for my thank you notes!

I just ordered the set that Laura Hooper suggests: It’s the copperplate starter set from http://www.paperinkarts.com/. I’ll let you know in a few days!!

I used a speedball one from Joann’s and it worked WAY, WAY better than the pen I had in England.  WAY WAY better, I still can’t get over how much better it was to use….
