This “Reversible Tip” architect grind variant has been my daily writer lately for it’s availability to produce two distinctly different line types from one single nib. When I need a distinct line variation, the traditional orientation provides thin vertical and wide side strokes. But sometimes I need a finer point for detailed notes or am in too much of a rush to deal with the idiosyncrasies of an architect grind. The Arch RT allows me to flip the nib over where the tipping has been left intact and tuned to a traditional fine line (some ink-paper combinations even yield an extra fine line in reverse). At the same price as a traditional architect, I consider the RT iteration to be a much better value due to this added functionality.

As with any architect, a broader original tipping results in more line variation. Line variation for finer tips can be made but there tends to be more feedback and a stricter adherence to the writing angle, side pitch, and nib rotation. Please specify your desired tip size when placing an order request.

BTW: Due to the popularity of @inkantadora in the pen community, there’s a chance you came to me searching for a bird-titled nib. This is that same grind with a new name that requires less explanation.
