Pelikan Fountain Pen Nibs - Italic & ObliqueHistorically, Pelikan's nibs had a square tip which means they gave a good line variation when writing - a little bit italic. If you are left handed, there is a good chance that you hold the pen in the ‘wrap around’ grip to prevent the side of your palm from smudging the words you have just written before the ink dries. When the different hold is used, the nib would not sit flat on its smooth edge and often would dig into the page on one of its sharp edges - not good! It would make the nib feel scratchy, write inconsistently and sometimes flick ink as it jumped when the edge lost its grip.
