Noble FP Sages,
 
I have recently come into a couple desk pen sets once belonging to a late lawyer relative. I'm including additional photos just for clarity, as mine are missing a few pieces. I have glass ink bottle inserts for both units (one original, one of my own devising) so the innards are covered as far as I know. HOWEVER, I am having a painful time finding original Morris pens (the nib units are all over ebay, but not the pens...) and I don't even know what to look for with the Sheaffer, as the unit was made by the Fineline division so any searches there produce predominantly the Fineline fp's.

 

Questions: Where can I find original pens? If that's impossible, will Esterbrook dipless or another brand work well with these? Are there some standardized dipless pens that will take the Morris nib units?
