Not what I expected.

I've prepared this nib, and it holds ink well.
It's not the easiest nib to control, and parts of it, other than the point, are very sharp - which makes me think that some quality control is lacking in the manufacturing process.
I thought I'd try the 303 as many others like it, but my first experience has been a disappointing one because of the point catching the paper and opening the tines too much during flourishes - I'll try a few different papers, but I won't hold my breath.
I think that I may stick to the Brause Steno.

I'm so sorry you're not getting on with this nib. We'd be more than happy to replace it for you as it should write very smoothly.

All the best
