Thanks! I suspect the nib is meant for under-writers, like you. You push on an upstroke and on a horizontal (left to right) and pull on a downstroke, correct? I pull on an upstroke and push on a downstroke, just because I am holding the pen with the nib pointed more or less toward me! I probably won't know for sure unless I join the drop and try the pen. I have set a reminder so I can think about it.
