The Sti-Flex nib is based on the ancient globes technical criteria, which were completely forgotten today. The Sti-flex, thanks to the very peculiar combination of lamination, cutting, forming and refining of the point, is an authentic flexible nib of the end of the '30s and as such it stands out among the few nibs today capable of excellent expressiveness on paper.
