Hi Folks,


Is there any of Pelikan nibs of size #2? 


I ask because I have a #2 flexible waterman nib, and I fitted it on a noodler's nib creaper. It works, but I need to slow down to keep reasonable amount of ink for the flex. If there are any Pelikan nib of size #2 I would like to get Oblique nib, because I prefer oblique over flex for daily writing.

I think the medium-small Pelikan 140 could be close...it is much smaller than the normal vintage standard sizes...It is semi-flex.


The 300 could/should have a smaller nib too, in it is Pelikan's small pen.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

Thanks.  According to Richards nib compatibility chart:




any M1xx are compatible. So, any nib with num M1xx should be of size #2. Right?  contemporary or vintage are also the same?
