Manuscript calligraphy nibs fit perfectly.

http://www.calligraphy.co.uk/

You can buy the fountain pen sets from a few £s (don't get the dip nibs) and the nibs just ease out and transfer straight in to the Noodler's pens.

 

I know this is an old thread, but I was wondering...

has anyone confirmed that the nibs in the inexpensive Manuscript calligraphy sets can be pulled out and put in a Noodler's Nib Creaper (and I guess that would also mean in a Noodler's Charlie)?

How about any other italic or stub nibs that have been successfully transplanted into these pens?

 

The flex nib is too stiff for me so I'd use the pen a lot more if I had an italic or stub nib in it.

I have had very good success putting a TWSBI Eco/Mini nib on my Charlie pen, which I believe would work for a Nib Creaper.

 

Juicy writer.  

 

Writes like a dream on Tomoe RP.

 

I was recommended to give the Karas Kustoms Fountain K nib a try, but right now The Eco/Mini nib is working.

A flexy Waterman Ideal #2 on a Noodler?!! I don't quite know what to say...

 

I have a couple spare waterman ideal #2 wet noodles. One spent a brief time in a noodlers charlie before I found it a home in a chinese lecai eyedropper.

 

The other is waiting for the noodlers safety pen.

I actually am using an FPR 5.5 nib on my charlie now and it's working great.  Only $3, though they can be hit or miss, but I have had good success with their medium nibs, which can write like fines and typically write like Medium Fines.

Thank you!

 

I didn't realize it was made of ebonite.  That's a big plus.

JetPens sells "their own branded" little pen. It is like a clear purse size fountain pen. I think it is $3.00. I've pulled the nib from one of those and put on a Noodler's Creaper of mine, and it fit just fine.
