First of all: hello. Newb here. Please be gentle with me. (but not too gentle ;) )


So I got hypnotized by the Stipula Etruria Rainbow Prisma. i clicked "BUY" before I knew what I was in for.


Fortunately it's a lovely pen so far and I do like it quite a bit, but what would make me love it is a Stub nib.


Does anyone have any experience changing nibs in an Etruria Rainbow?

Anything I should know?


I am hesitant to do anything without some idea of what I'm doing.

Any tips or advice?

What is the nib width?  You could send it out and have it ground to a stub or cursive italic if it was an M, B, or BB. There are quite a few nibmeisters who will do the job for you.  One that I have used is Pendleton Brown.


 I looked up the pen on Fountain Pen Hospital's site, it indicated only an M titanium nib was available. Who did you purchase the pen from, I would check with the dealer?  I have a Stipula Casa Mila with the titanium nib and found it to be an OK nib.  I am not sure if a titanium nib can be modified you would have to check.
