I recently bought a NOS Parker 17 with an XF nib that is needle-fine and a fraction of the cost of a new Sailor. Sheaffer vintage pens might offer similar options, but unlike a new pen you'd have to wait to find one.

Get a Pilot Penmanship and swap the nibs.  They use the same nib & feed and the penmanship is a Japanese XF.  Swapping the nibs is super easy too.

Swap the nib with what exactly? There are no Chinese made pens that I'm aware of that take pilot nibs.
