Default Autumn Leaves eyedropper with ink window

Testing out the pen I just finished as an eyedropper and practicing using this cursive italic nib.

Added pics of the feeds for Jowo cursive italic 1.5 and medium Jowo and writing sample using a converter to compare with eyedropper application.

That is a beauty and looks like it writes like a champ.
The pen is mightier than the sword. Unless someone stabs you with the sword.

Nice Pen, and Writing, Mark.
Striking Blank,
Excellent Proportions and Profile, Like the Visible Ink Window.
Great Fit and Finish.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.

That looks really nice, great job on your calligraphy. What type of nib did you use? Is the feed the same as one used with a converter?

Thank you all. I'm definitely just a starter when it comes to calligraphy, but I'm very interested in learning.

Mike, good question on the feed. The nib/feed unit I used for the writing sample is a Jowo cursive italic 1.5 nib. The other pictures show the pen with a medium Jowo nib. The same threading is used on the housing for both nibs. But comparing and getting a closer look at the feeds between the 2, it looks like the feeds are different. I'll try to attach the closeup pic of the underside of both nib/feed. The cursive italic appears to have wider grooves/slits, which would I would have expected since it lays down more ink. I'm soaking the nibs in water so I can take it apart. The cursive italic nib unit is being stubbornly difficult to pull off the housing. I'm also curious to see the degree of change in writing if I switch the feeds. I also tried the cursive italic nib using a converter (I'll see about attaching a pic) to see what the writing looks like. Forced drops out of the nib to soak the feed. I did notice a little bit of skipping, so maybe using the pen as an eyedropper may be better suited for the cursive italic nib vs converter. But I don't expect to see same issue using the converter on the lesser wet nib print (M,F,XF).

I bought both nibs from Brian over at Meisternibs and/or Edison Pens. He may be able to give a more definite answer.
