Hey everybody

 

 

I am wondering if vintage Eversharp Skyline nibs could be used on modern Eversharp Empire pens.

 

Last week, I've received my modern Empire in the Jasper celluloid finnish and it's a more than great pen!

However, the pen only has 1 standard 'medium' nib - no other nib options.

 

In the future I meight be interested in a stub or italic skyline nib on my empire, if this is possible at least.

This is my first Eversharp pen ever, and I'm eager to learn more about the brand :)

 

Sorry for the English, I'm not a native speaker.

 

 

Thank you a lot 

Ruben

The Skyline Empire like most other modern Skylines takes a #5 nib and modern feed. The vintage eversharp nibs were #3 or 4 size. The Executive eversharp nibs come close. But not perfect. We have satisfied the Ned got variations in modern Skylines by having a variety of nibs custom ground into extra fine, flex and stub with flex. Contact us back channel for what custom nibs may be available.
