Dip Pen with 10 flexy nibs

10 assorted, antique never-before-used steel dip nibs with a dip pen holder.
$10.00 plus $3.00 shipping.
U.S. only.
Paypal.

Dip pens are fun to use. They are also a great way to try out a flex nib if you are considering buying a flexy fountain pen.

Note: Unused nibs have a protective coating that needs to be removed before you start using them or they won't write properly. Soapy water will do the trick.

Hi Jill,

I received your shipment yesterday, and my expectations were definitely exceeded. Fun packaging, nice personal note/writing sample, and the writing experience with these dip nibs is really, really fun. I'm definitely hooked now, as the learning curve was not nearly as steep as I anticipated. Thanks for an excellent buying experience!

I'm glad you're enjoying the dip pens and that you're getting the hang of it so quickly. thumbup.gif

The paper I like for dip pens is not a smooth as the paper I like for fountain pens. I prefer paper with more tooth. I also sometimes dilute my inks to get more shading.

Someone mentioned looking for dip pens and nibs in another topic so I'm bumping this in case there are few members who are interested. U.S. only.... but not because I don't like the rest of you... it's just easier that way. headsmack.gif

Just to let people know, I ordered a set of these for my daughter-in-law's birthday in February this year, and it is the favorite present she received. And, unbeknownst to her, by far the least expensive. She is a crafter, and makes cards, bookmarks, etc and sells them on etsy, and has used the pen to good effect there.

Another satisfied customer here–though I bought these for myself, not as a gift. If you're thinking of grabbing a set to play with, don't hesitate!

Thank you Hagios. I'm glad that people are enjoying these sets. I do at least half, it not more, of my writing with dip pens. The rest is with fountain pens -- I only use ballpoints when forced. biggrin.gif

Just a quick question from a n00b (though I've been lurking for months now- this site is feeding my stationery addiction like nothing else). Am I right in assuming that these nibs would be suitable for learning Spencerian and/or Copperplate? I'd like to start playing around with one or the other, but coming by suitable nibs and such in B&M stores has been nearly impossible, and a lot of the stuff online is pretty expensive. This would be perfect if these nibs would work for that.

Thanks!

I don't know a lot about Copperplate but these are great for Spencerian writing. Send me a PM if you're interested in a set and welcome to FPN. W2FPN.gif Oh and, I have a crazy paper addiction... I swear I get paper cravings. headsmack.gif

Glad to know I'm not alone there, either! I just bought my first couple of pads of Clairfontaine (one ruled notebook, one French ruled for Japanese kanji practice), and I'm obsessed with it. Some of the best paper I've ever written on.

I may have to wait until payday next week, but I'll probably be sending you a PM shortly thereafter.
