Problem is where the nib was cut and thinned, you have lost the protection of chrome plating, and that is where it will start to rust.  Be careful as rusted metal tends to expand in size, due to the rusting.


What we need to find is a stainless steel dip nib of similar shape.

Also, if you did the Ahab Flex Mod on the Nekko G nib, would you get a wet noodle? It's a thought. And I hope someone comes up with a flexy stainless steel nib.

I've ordered the nibs and will Dremelize and test when they come in the mail.


I think if we don't leave them in the pen for over a week at a time It's worth it. for the fun.
