waitingforthering2:  I’ve had good luck so far with a Speedball pen holder and the 512 and 513EF nibs. If I can ever find an oblique pen holder I really want to give that a try. So far I’ve found that the ink really makes a huge difference. I tried a couple that weren’t great and it made it quite difficult to write. I’m currently using white ink and the Winsor Newtown Calligraphy Ink has been the best. It flows well and it’s quite opaque. This website has been very helpful for learning a bit about pens, nibs, and inks and she has free lettering guides avialble in her shop (after you ‘checkout’ they are emailed). https://thepostmansknock.com/blog/

I don’t use the legit ones – just the marker type with a chiseled edge.
