I'm sure JoWo nibs or similar must be available in the EU, and I'm just wondering if anyone knows a good source.

 

I couldn't see any on eBay, except for the mounted kind.

 

Goulet's are just on the verge of attracting VAT if buying into Britain.

 

Thank you for any suggestions.

I used some nibs taken from Jinhao X450.

The whole pen price is cheaper than any single nib price, and the nib is a good one.

You still might be able to find out who carries their nibs. I would expect they would sell primarily to pen shops or manufacturers - certainly that is what happened with Goulet.
