There’s a close resemblance between the 3120 and the 3130, especially when you allow for considerable straightening work on the 3130. That said, the application of the tipping material is different on them all. This may be down to the fact that different operatives had their own signature style, perhaps. Once the tipping is affixed the tips are ground to the required shape. Maybe it’s me but I think there is beauty in these nib tips.
