Will An Osmiroid Nib Fit In An Esterbrook J
Posted 01 February 2011 - 21:05
Thanks for your patience, I'm new to Esterbrooks.

I have both pens with me right now....Yes! they do--I just inserted a gold osmoroid italic oblique medium into a broken J--it screws it great!
How do you like that oblique medium?

Just screwed in an osmiroid italic oblique nib into my estie SJ. Yup, the old threaded osmiroid nibs screw right into esterbrooks.

No one else has mentioned it yet, but there are two models of Osmiroid nibs. The older ones are the ones that fit Esterbrooks - they look similar to Esterbrooks (except for the actual nib). The newer Osmiroids don't fit and look nothing like Esterbooks.

Take a look at this website.I believe it belongs to a FPN member. It shows the difference between the old and the new nibs.Osmiroid Nibs
Site is full of spamjacking ads. Dozens of windows open up whether you want them to or not.
But yes...Osmiroid screw-in nibs fit well in Esterbrook J-pens!

I use an Esterbook SJ with an Osmiroid Copperplate nib for sketching--works wonderfully.

Did I read somewhere on another forum topic that an Osmiroid nib will fit in an Esterbrook J? Sorry if I am totally out to lunch. Would an Esterbrook with the right nib be a good sketching pen?
Thanks for your patience, I'm new to Esterbrooks.

Another option, I recall someone putting a Pelikan nib into his Esterbrook.
I don't remember which Pelikan nib it was from; M150 or M200 series.

M400. The steel band around the Pelikan nib collar protrudes, but I was able to write with the pen. I also tried an M600 broad nib in a J. It wrote. Those two are 14K nibs.

Really happy with the Osmiroid flex/copperplate nib that I have installed in a Dollar Pen. The gold plating – wash, really – was starting to come off so I just polished it away. The underlying steel matches the pen better anyway. It's far more flexible than any of the standard production Esterbrook nibs, and I usually reach for it whenever I'm looking for an XXF hairline.
