I have an Osmiroid 75 with screw-in nibs, and I'd like to acquire more nibs for it.
I've reviewed the Osmiroid nib chart on Richard Binder's site.
A very kind gentleman in Europe has located additional nibs for me in a shop. However, the nib numbers differ from the ones listed on the above chart. Were different nib numbers used in different countries? My main concern with importing a nib without seeing it is that I might be buying a nib for a different type of Osmiroid pen & wouldn't be able to use it.
I have tried an Esterbrook nib in the pen, & it seems to work. I use stub nibs & italics. In your opinion, should I just use an Esterbrook nib or would it be worthwhile to import an Osmiroid nib? Is there something really special about an Osmiroid nib versus an Esterbrook or Venus?
Thank you for your input.
