As you discovered, it is the nib and finish that makes FC pens so great. These are so much more than wood pens.

the faber castell websites outside the US are hopeless...ambition replacement nibs are 19 USD, the other FC websites in europe either don't have them, or link you to other unaffiliated online shops...one of them is selling a replacement nib for 33 GBP...
