I want to pick up a new nib for my Visconti Van Gogh (2004)--looking for broad and/or medium. I don't like how the fine nib writes.

Where's the best place online to buy one? I'm looking for the cheapest and most reputable place.

Try Marco at Novelli in Rome.

What kind of Van Gogh do you have?  With some exceptions a Maxi will have gold nibs, while a Midi will have Steel.  With that information you may be able to make a trade rather than needing to buy a new one.

Thanks all. It's a Midi (2004), so I've been looking at steel. Has anyone dealt with the Online Pen Company? They have them for a seemingly good price. Just not sure if it's legit or not...
