During the last few weeks I have been involved in several forum topics pertaining the function of nibs. I found some mix up on words, used to describe the function of nibs and the characteristics of materials.
I commented on this, but then I thought it would be much better to write about it more explicitly and show with diagrams what actually is going on. I hope, you find the article helpful. You can get there by clicking here
