Matching Dip Pen Holders And Nibs
Posted 23 May 2012 - 23:36
Now, I've never had a dip pen before, and I notice a lot of dip pen nibs for sale, but I'm not sure how to pick the right nibs to match the holder. Are they more or less interchangeable or is there something I should look out for beforehand. I was thinking if they're pretty much "one size fits all" I could buy one of those lots of miscellaneous nibs so I'd have a bunch to play with. I figured I'd get some advice beforehand (though not before I bought that awesome silver holder).

Take the pen holder to an art supply store. They almost always have a selection of steel nibs for sale. You can check the size there.
