Couldn't you just get an extra fine and have someone grind it down to super fine?

Sure.  But it wouldn't have a gold plated center portion, and it wouldn't be extremely hard to find (I have one in the original box, and it just looks fabulous on display!).

Does anyone know how the 8440 nib compares to a Sheaffer's Triumph X5 nib? Thanks in advance for the info.
