This nib came to me as mint and unused in the box. I have run it through the USC and checked it with a loupe and there was no trace ink to be seen either during the cleaning or upon inspection. Looking closely at the treads under the loupe it might have been test fitted into a pen at some point. I am confident that the nib has never been used.

I know this is a very old post, but if the nib is still available I am interested. :thumbup:

I have 5 Estie nibs that have been ground to CI's by Pendleton or Leah at Pendemonium. All but a couple are 9668's. That works fine for me as that's pretty close to my perfect width.

Alot more people who like ground nibs like wider stubs.

I don't know if anyone has bought this yet, but I'll bet it would might a RIGHTEOUS custom ground
stub/CI.

(PS; Trust Me. A nicely ground Estie nib will spank the Estie 9284 "Stub" nib.)
(PSS; A Warning though. It will tend to make most of your other Estie nibs b o r i n g .
