I don't think they were adjusted down as many of my vintage pens have down turned nibs. Are they flexible??

The Nib Just Broke On My Vintage Pen!majestic nib repair replacement third tier age vintage stress point material

Yes, they are fairly flexible but I have a number of pens of the same make - they are all Conway Stewarts by the way, and they have straight nibs. They don't look right to me.

Here are 3 of my Conway Stewart 70s. The one on the left represents how I though a nib should look. Sorry about the quality of the photos.

Guessing they are all the same nib?
Might also throw this in the CS forum for more expert advice.

Yes, they all have the same sized nib. In fact apart from the bib profiles, they are pretty much indentical.

Thanks to the sweet mhguda, I now have my Majestic pen in service and I must say...omg!!! What a great writing little pen. That, is due to the super nib that was shared by mhguda so that this gem could remain in the working world and not become a parts pen!!!
Thanks everyone for all of the assistance and ideas. Soaking (always good) and a working part did wonders for this vintage pen!! Thank you all, especially mhguda!

I missed your update due to illness, as I see from the date of your post, TXKat. But I'm glad you made it work, and happy writing to you. Those nibs are great, and the plus is they're vintage, too! Enjoy...

So sorry to hear you were ill, mhguda! You brightened my day with your generosity and kindness in helping with this interesting and educational project!! Wishing you the best and glad you are feeling better!
Thank you all, again, for helping me tick this project off the list.
Now...for the Lifetime pen that is now mysteriously feedless...I am totally baffled!!!!
