Got myself nibs and a penholder today. I ran into a lot of trouble using it for the first time. I couldn’t manage the ink at all and there were blobs everywhere. But the wonderful tutorials on YouTube saved me, so now I finally have some ink control! My writing is still very shaky, so next step: learn how to write smoothly and consistently. Using a Nikko G Nib and a Manuscript straight pen holder for now. I wonder if an oblique holder would be useful at this beginning stage.
