I noticed yesterday that PelikanPens (pelikanpens.co.uk) is now selling 2B nibs for the M80* range, in both two-tone and rhodinated finishes. There is a bit of a price premium, but nothing too dramatic.

(For information, as nobody seems to have posted about it yet; no affiliation apart from having bought from them in the past.)

Note to moderators: this is on the cusp of belonging here and in the Marketwatch section. I placed it here because of the specialised nature of the information. Please feel free to move it if that would be more appropriate.

Thanks for the heads up. I'd heard that they'd commissioned a run of these to sell. Now I see it's true.

I bought a rhodinated BB, it arrived the next day by SD.

Pelikan pens are just the bees knees and provide an outstanding level of service.

I'll be back (yet again)

Oh boy, I'm lucky enough to have a BB CI on one of my 800's. Didn't think I'd get a chance to get another these days. Tough choice as the budget is stretched this year.

I have adpated this nib on a 805 clear demonstrator. I find this nib rather stiff especially compared to the M1000 EF nib.

Has anyone got the same experience?

Modern Pelikan nibs are stiff with the exception of the M1000 nibs.

That's a shame !
What is the solution with other brands besides the M1000 ?

What most of us that like the old nibs, we buy M400/600 pens and use them with our vintage nibs.

 

The other solution on the larger M8xx range is to  let the nib do the work with a custom grind or get the nib let the nib thinned to give flex.
