JoWo offers some big sized #8 nibs in 18K gold, equipped with Ebonite feeders.

 

I am hoping members who have used this nib will share their experience with it, good or bad.

 

Thanks!

Hari

I think they're nice.  They're not as soft as the M1000 but they're not nails by any means.  Nice and almost soft feeling to me.

Might I ask the dimensions of the pen(s)? #8 is a very large size, so I assume it isn't on a Kaweco Sport.
Thanks.

Very pleased with mine, it is a fine point and was very nice and smooth without any need for adjustment or smoothing.

Hari, if you decide to get one, could you please PM or email me (I'll come in on that with you and we can split shipping or something)?

 

I've wanted to get a Deccan or two with these nibs for ages.

I believe the montegrappa extra has the same nib. If so it is excellent.

No. They only fit pens that were made for them. Theyre much wider than the nibs that would fit a Noodlers.

...at least I don't know of any pens that have nibs as wide as these.
