Love them!
I own about 5 of these pens. I also collect other brands of fountain pens. Some are antique & some are new. They all are however, top quality, and that's why I buy Italix pens.
Some people say these pens are heavy. Not me! I say they feel like quality instruments. They are also very well made. If you don't have an Italix Churchman's Prescriptor fountain pen you are really missing a great writing experience.
I own six Italix pens and love them all. I must tell you that this is a heavy pen, but like all its siblings, it’s a great writer. And the nibs are well made and quite expressive. In short, buy this pen!
Why doesn't the seller show us at least some examples that help the customes understand what are the differences between the nibs?

Nib writing guidance

Nib size guidance. The styles are representative and not actual writing samples.We are often asked for writing samples, sorry we do not provide them. Paper, writing pressure and personal writing styles will change the appearance of the way a nib writes. Manufacturers also vary in their interpretation of standard nib sizes. Our illustration using standard type styles is our view of how an 'Italix' brand pen writes. From the top we show:
Fine
Italic Medium
Italic Broad
Italic Standard Medium
Cursive nibs reduce the thick and thin line definition.

I agree. While the "Nib writing guidance" is somewhat helpful (thanks kplus), they really should just have a writing sample of each nib. Picture being worth 1000 words and all...

Edit: found an image in the product photos for another Italix pen here on MD: https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/product-images/italix-commodore-s-credential/MD-21780_20160622174645_9e80e2983cff8161.jpg
Just as a matter of curiosity, what's the size of the nib, 5 or 6?

and the nib is amazingly well tuned I have the same nibs from Goulet and italix really does some great job with them.
Hi MD, are the pens in transit to you yet? We're about a week away from the ship date :)
I just joined the drop and bought the fine (standard) nib. I have the Parsons Essentia in a medium nib and it writes buttery smooth. I hope that the fine nib writes just as smoothly.
Hi, just joined the drop for this pen and have opted for fine nib. Will it be a good nib for day to day writing. I am a medical professional, and use fountain pen for writing prescriptions. Presently using Sheaffer Legacy Heritage.

Yes, fine nib are the most commonly used nib. Difference between fine and medium is minimal, you'll be more than fine with it in your daily work.

Thanks..
I like many things about this pen: it is solid and on a big side, lacquered finish is awesome, cap which can be posted securely, overall civilized quality of the body, plenty of places where you can engrave your initials etc. But there are few things that I don't like: 1. The clip. It moves side to side and doesn't hold on place securely. Looks like design issue. Clip mechanism didn't take into account that the body is rounded. 2. The short section. It is less convenient to hold it while filling the pen. 3. The golden ring. It is pretty sharp and really disturbs me during long writing sessions. 4. I also spend quite a time tuning my nib, I like nibs to be smooth even if they are italic.
Is Mr. Pen only location to buy additional nibs or is there a U.S. distributor? Love the pen but wish I had an option to use a different nib.
Yay! My Extra Broad Stub Churchman's Prescriptor came in the mail today. I'm so excited to start using it! Thanks Mr and Mrs Massdrop! You've made my New Year. One question though, where does the ink go?


P.S. FOR SALE- 1 x mechanical keyboard switch - color (onyx black/cherry brown)
Can someone please explain the difference between the:

- italic
- itatic oblique
- non-italic oblique
- cursive stub

I am right handed :)

It the cursive stub different than a standard 1.1 or 1.5 stub nib?
omkarma
I'm not sure about that.
How many have to purchase to get the price down to $54.99?

You didn’t read what I said. The pen is already down to its lowest price. Just click on “Join Drop.”

Thanks. I did read what you wrote. The main page is confusing. It looks like it's only the higher price is unlocked. Like I said, this is new to me. Thanks for your help.
