You may want to add the Leonardo Officina Italliana pen company to the list, as I think they are going to prove popular during the coming year.


Their Momento Zero at least, uses a #6 Bock, according to:








The second reference also quotes the same nib source for Leonardo's Furore model:

Its absurd that Noodlers isnt even listed as a nib supplier, at the very least you can get some very unique nibs from Noodlers.

Really this list is omitting the entirety of the Fountain Pen industry of Inda, which is not small, but apparently just coming into western consciousness. Fountain Pen Revolution has about a dozen pen brands listed on the website.

Asking where those nibs come from would probably answer the question of where Nathan gets his nibs.

Faber Castell uses Bock nibs now! 


And Nemosine uses JoWo!

Didn't Bock do well?


Will do a whole heap towards standardising the industry and will contribute towards keeping the cost of new (compliant) pens down (and the profit margins of remaining pen manufacturers viable).


Also theoretically provides a cash surplus to invest in R&D; hopefully producing new high performing materials and designs to the market.
