I ordered a Narwhal Schuylkill with the custom needlepoint grind, and some Noodler’s X-Feather black ink. This pen is exactly what I hoped it would be. Wonderfully fine line, smooth, consistent, and the ink gives no visible feathering in the kind of cheap bulk printer paper we have piles and piles of in the office copying room. The Narwhal feels great in my hand, and for me has the right balance of looking great but not ostentatious. For my preferences, I don’t think a fountain pen gets better than this–and since I want a fine line, the custom needlepoint grind is perfect.
