Writing with a Hero 9018 Fude Nib – Video Post

If you missed my full review of the Hero 9018 Fude Nib fountain pen, check it out!

I found it hard to explain in writing how to change the line width when writing, so I made up this quick video. In the narrow line section you’ll notice that the pen is at a much higher angle to the page. This “posture” allows only the tip of the pen to be in contact with the page.
