Old fashioned

I am inking my Star Trek story and I find myself using a variety of pen points. I even went to the old Esterbrooks. For those unfamiliar with this type of nib, It's a steel pen point that you dip in your choice of black ink. It's a pen and ink point used by all kinds of old school inkers. If memory serves me, I bought 2 boxes from J. Rubinstein a long time ago. There were so many in the boxes, I wondered if I would ever use them all! Now I am so glad I made the investment.

R. Esterbrook 600-School, steel pen points. Maybe the same type Frank Giacoia used! They don't make them like that anymore.
