A single Estie J (green) - 3 nibs - a 1555 Gregg Fine, a Venus Fine and a 9550 EF posting nib. What does it mean when you have triple the number of nibs as you do pens?

Niboholism - a secondary complication often contracted by penoholics.  Most found among the Estieholic population because of the plethora of nibs available.... 

 

Patients have reported its onset after first declaring "This xxxx is the right point for the way I write".  Then a different one shows up that, well  ....

That is true! That is exactly how it works! You see, the 9550 is my perfect nib. However, what if the 9450 should happen to be a bit better and I never tried it? Shouldn't a person have one or two 3xxx nibs?

 

I mean I could see how it would work that way . . . if I were an Estieholic.

Ah, Estieholism...  Crack rock of the fountain pen world, that's why there is not such thing as "experimenting" when it comes to Estie! 

 

I got my first Estie exactly about a year ago, and now- somehow I have five Esties and a couple of extra nibs LOL!!!  My very first one came with 9556, which I thought was absolutely perfect, until I got my second one, with 9668, *SWOON*...  And- if a 2668 nib is somehow sold at a flea market, looking lonely all by itself surrounded by dip pen nibs, OF COURSE I have to bring it home....

So, my "skunk" quest has met it's end. Twice. A J and an LJ. Definitely my cleanest Esties, time to pull the gray out and insert a skunk into my daily carry.
Yes, I fell off the wagon. But the good thing is I won't have to get more for another 15-20 minutes!
