Has anyone used / does anyone have impressions of the Stipula Israel 65th anniversary LE? I can only find a single passing reference to it on FPN. Also, if anyone's used it, does it have an interchangeable nib?

i haven't used this model.  However, other than the colors and specific engraving, it appears to be an Etruria with a titanium nib.  You should be able to find plenty of reviews here of other Stipula pens with Ti nibs.

Stipula Etrurias are generally well regarded pens.  I personally prefer their gold nibs to the Ti nibs, but others' opinions differ.  Check the review index.  I think you will find a goodly amount of info.

 

Best Regards, greg

I have one with a 14K medium nib which I have used a couple times, I find it to be dryer than I would like and a bit hard starting.  My real complaint with this pen is the poor thread fit of the cap, Stipula could have done a better job there.
