Hi everyone,


Ive been given a pen from a friend, however it does not have the nib or feed.

I understand that pilot does not make replacement nibs however,


I was wondering a few things.


1. Do any stores carry size 15 pilot Nibs (FA or normal)

2. Does a Size 10 Nib & feed fit into the pen

3. Does a goulet pens size 6 Nib fit the pen

4. Are there any other nibs/ways to use my pen or is it just garbage? 


Thank you everyone

Or you can buy a 2nd hand Pilot 743 and swap the nibs. That's probably the most cost effective solution.

#10 nibs won't fit. Only the #15 will fit.
