On a pen I recently made, I used the Bock #220 Titanium nib with 6 mm ink feed.

This is their second largest nib.
In this video you can see how it is attached to the pen,

I compare the 6mm to the 5 mm ink feed.

You can see how the nib reacts to the writing hand, how flexible it is.

The smallest #060 steel nib is also used to compare the Bock nibs to a Brause nib.

Very interesting. Thank you for taking time to provide such a thorough demonstration of the nib's characteristics.

some people asked if i could provide prices for the nib units.

So far I can only provide prices for the smallest Bock nib units (nib, inkfeed and housing):

steel: 10 € - 13 $

gilded: 10 €

titanium: 40 €- 53 $

18kt gold: 95 € - 127 $

these are prices valid in Germany

Very nice, I really like the third example in the post before last. What finish do you use for the wood?

I also like a number of the sketch pencils you have on your website. Very nice indeed.

I love the ebony pen, congratulations !
Do you make your sections yourself or do you buy them?
As for the titanium BOCK nibs, i've used them on some of my pens with mixed results.
Problem is that the flex is rather limited and the tines bend easily permanently.
Just my experience........

Thanks to all of you for your comments.

By the way. the black pen is made of Ebony, not Ebonite.

The sections are from Bock.

By now they make nibs, inkfeeds, housings for nib+inkfeed and the sections.

I think the titanium nibs are quite good.

Not as good as a Montblanc nib from the 1930ies as you can see in this video:
