I never even knew those pens were for that but now I even ordered my own yesterday!!

You handle the Pilot well.  I can't control ink flow or transition from straigt to curved lines with one.  I'd much rather the a standard nib with tines side by side instead of parallel.

+Christopher Collins- I forgot to mention that I teach Calligraphy at our local Activity Centre here in Frederiksvaerk, Denmark, where I now live, and have done so for almost 20years.
Yirdy Machar (3 years ago)
+Christopher Collins Thanks for your comments, on which I have now posted ino. With regard to your question. I was taught at the age of 13/14 (1961/62) by a Master Calligrapher who was awardeded an MBE for his calligraphy work, mainly teaching school teachers how to teach children the art of good handwriting. He had also written more than three books on Calligraphy. The Late Tom Gourdie M:B:E. was also from my home town (at that time) Kirkcaldy, in The Kingdom of Fife, Scotland. As Aye Yirdy.

How is ur pen working so smooth? My calligraphy pen does not work like that
Yirdy Machar (4 years ago)
The pen that I am using is designed to write smoothly. They are called "Pilot Parralell Pens" . They are available from many sources on line, try Google, see earlier comments.

Thanks for posting.  I understand calligraphy pro's typically incorporate elements of their own style into existing font styles.  Old English is my favourite, is there an accepted, base standard for Old English.  I've googled and found many different versions of the Old English style (it may just be the style of pen being used?)
Dan Nelson (4 years ago)
THANKS for posting this, Yirdy.  (I like your music, too!) I am preparing to do a teaching video for calligraphy so am searching the internet for other calligraphers.  A number of your "Old English" letter-forms are quite unique-- I like that.  One the things I want to teach my students is that once they learn the "basics" or the "rules", they will choose WHICH FORM of each letter THEY like the best.  Your style is a good example of that.
chileoftheking (5 years ago)
thank you for sharing your penmanship in Old English. Very well done. It certainly is not a style to hurry thru. Is the nib of that pen interchangeable with another nib or just the one?
Yirdy Machar (5 years ago)
No it is not interchangeable. the pens come with the nibs attached in four separate sizes. Check Google for "Pilot Parallel Pens".  Good Luck.
