Product Description
A substantial, modern-looking fountain pen from across the pond, the Italix English Curate features an acrylic body, chrome accents, and a crayon box of color options—from Candy (cherry red with white swirls) to Sable (a marbled, chocolatey brown). Made to post, its screw-on cap fits neatly onto the stepped barrel and remains secure thanks to an internal spring, creating a perfectly balanced feel Read More

Does anyone know which, if any, of Italix pens offer a #6 nib as opposed to a #5? Thanks

writerstephenI don't know for sure but you can always check out their website..... I'm waiting for a Churchmans's Prescriptor to come up.

Is there a way to add on a second nib with out purchasing an entire second pen?

Does anyone have any experience with the gold nibs? I really want the gold nib, but it looks like no one bought that one.
A shame it didn't reach lowest price point... and it was so close.
I got the Viper Strike recently and I really like it. The one Italix I'm still waiting to see on Massdrop is their flagship, the Imperium State. If it doesn't drop I'll just get it from Mr Pen... eventually. I'm probably almost as excited about your 78 as you are, lol.

TherocHahaha! I will post extensive pics and a comprehensive review.
Have been waiting for this drop to return for a while now. This is the best Italix pen Massdrop offers. I even saved a bit of a money vs buying directly from Mr. Pen. This will be my 3rd Italix pen and I hope Massdrop can offer the Imperium State at some point.
Buy this pen if you like writing.

Can someone please explain the difference between the nib types or what they look like...

The price on Mr. Pen is 66 British pounds + 10.50 shipping for a total cost of approximately 77 GBP. This equals US$95. Where is the $197 MSRP from?
Titanium_ManThat's where:
Mr. Pen's own recommended retail price (RRP) is £149.

TherocFair enough although the MSRP reference is a bit misleading when Mr. Pen, the only online retailer of Italix I have found, sells the pen "regularly" for half the MSRP. I suppose the message is "caveat emptor". It makes sense to check the price elsewhere because often a product can be found for well below the MSRP to which Massdrop compares its drop prices (As others have noted).

Please clarify your oblique nib descriptions: a "left-handed oblique" could be a "left oblique," or more descriptively, a "left-footed oblique." This type of nib would more likely be used by a right-handed person, since they tend to rotate their nibs inward. Correspondingly, a "right-handed oblique" could be a "right oblique" or a "right-footed oblique," which would be more likely to be used by a left-handed person, for the same reason. So you should clarify whether your terms mean the way the nib is cut, or the handedness of the writer. The handedness designation is not foolproof, since some left-handed underwriters, including myself, tend to rotate the nib outward, and therefore do better with a left-footed oblique. You see how confusing this can get, but it is very important for the customer to know which nib is meant. I strongly prefer the terms "left-footed" and "right-footed," since they refer to the shape of the nib, and have nothing to do with the handedness of the writer.
The following image, with the top of the nib on the left and the bottom on the right, is of a left-footed oblique nib (think of the shape of the toes at the end of the foot). This nib can variously be called left oblique, right-handed oblique (because it's usually used by right-handers), or just plain oblique (because left-footed oblique nibs are much more common than right-footed obliques). It could also be used by left-handers, if they like to turn their nibs outward.

You can see how easy it can be to order the wrong nib if these definitions are not made clear.

jmccarty3I think they've described them as such to simplify them for people who don't aren't familiar with obliques. For a right-handed writer, if you want an oblique, you're probably going to want an oblique like the one in your image (a left-oblique), and v.v. for left-handed writers. The nomenclature is also confused by several manufacturers describing obliques the opposite way (i.e. saying left-obliques are right-obliques). I think for previous Italix drops they've called left-obliques just "oblique" and right-obliques "reverse oblique".
