The benefit is mostly for people who rotate the pen to the side when they write. For others it's just something different. Often the  nibs are made more like stubs or cursive italics, so there is line variation in the writing.

And it seemed like a good idea at the time. But I can't remember exactly why I did it. And the nib has become mixed in with other nibs of the same model. So I don't even know anymore which nib it is. D'OH!
