Was just looking to see if anyone could point me in the direction of a replacement Waterman Laureatte Nib. Does not have to be gold plated.
Mine is around 20 years old and the nib has corroded significantly.

Thanks in advance for any help.
I was just here....Where did I go?

There are two styles for the Laureat - early and late. The early nib is very plain, the later version has a couple of engraved lines.

The early nib and feed are interchangeable with the Forum. The nib, but not the feed, is comon with the early Graduate, Pro Graduate, Centurion and probably all lower end steel nib pens.

I haven't tested the interchangeability of the later version but it looks identical to the nib on the Graduate/Graduate Color/Allure/Apostrophe series, as well as the plastic bodied JIF school pen. I intend to buy school pens for spare nibs but haven't needed to try it.

My favorite Forum these days has an old Laureat nib I traded because all of the plating had come off. The bare steel looks good in the Forum (a stubbed medium - great writer) while the Laureat has a new looking plated nib from the Forum.

I don't have any spares right now. Like you, I had corroded nibs and swapped them out.

good luck,
Craig

Hello AVITWeb,
I could find a replacement in my collection, it is blue with chrome trim and nib M, new and never used.
If you are interested, please send an email.
Kind regards,
Volker
