While browsing ebay UK I saw an auction for a spares pen with a 9312 italic nib. Having recently purchased a 2312 italic nib and found it to be the most satisfying Estie nib so far, I thought I would try this. I won it yesterday, and the postage is more than the auction price, the total being about $40. These nibs are hard to find, so I thought I would hope the nib is in decent condition. The cap is a hoser, so the pen is, as the seller said, spares.
I saw an SJ on ebay the other day, and it is a buy it now of $55 (he dropped it from $75). 2312 italic nib. Do I really need another? Not really, but I sometimes get the fever for these things and overbuy. Not this time.
Edit to clarify: The SJ with the 2312 is on USA ebay, not on ebay UK. Please buy it, someone.
