I love this quote. I saw it while reading a fountain pen book and thought it was great, and very true. I don’t know what my dream nib is, because I like too many – sometimes I like really broad, crisp nibs, and sometimes I like fine, flexible nibs. I want them all! Do you have a dream nib?

I have to say that I seem to prefer just about anything that is cursive italic. As most people admit, it makes my handwriting look much better than it actually is and the line variations and ink shading is deeply pleasing to me.
However recently, I acquired at 1955 Montblanc 142 Green Striated FP and Pencil set from Go Pens and I must say that this FP has then nicest medium nib I have ever written with. I had no idea that this pen would perform so well and had planned to have it nibmeistered, but there simply is no need.
