When writing the sample in the listing images, the NIB writes with a medium to double broad stroke/line. The medium line measures roughly .59mm and will flex to a double broad stroke/line of 1.73mm with medium to firm pressure when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample provided was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue Ink.
