I have a couple of 58's, but both are equipped with steel nibs, so I can't comment directly.  I can say, though, that the Bexleys use decent to very good nibs, and that I have never had one that I could not adjust to my liking.  Among my Bexleys I have gold nibs as well as the steel and enjoy every one of them.

 

Depending upon where you are purchasing the 58, some of the dealers offer nib adjustment to your preference as part of the "pre-delivery" service.

 

If you like big, chunky pens as I do, the 58 is an instant winner.  I currently have inked my Mandarin 58 with a fine/medium steel nib.  One of my favorites.

I have three of the other BEXLEY fountain pens.  Good nibs and good ink flow.

 

I wouldn't hesitate to get another, at the right price. 

 

Write with joy.
