I'm  really enjoying  the 14K Bock nib - which I've ground to 1.2 mm stub - as it is, no need for a vintage flex nib !

Aargh!  My favorite material and a perfect sized nib.  Please put me on the list for when you are able to offer these pens for sale!  Meanwhile, I'll have to be satisfied with my Visconti.

Gorgeous. What nib is that? Unbranded #8 Bock..? 

 

Yes, sketchstack, effectively  an unbranded size 8-14K Bock nib.

Surprisingly the nib "wing width" is mostly 0.3- 0.4 mm larger compared to the branded Bock nibs.

Makes the nib look bigger, which I like ! Unfortunately these unbranded nibs are more expensive and have to be ordered at larger quantities…..

They're really attractive. Perhaps Conid could offer them as an option...

Too many pens; too little writing.

It's a beautiful pen Francis. But for me, nothing comes close to the Flanders Field pen that I missed out on. :(

Thank you. I'm always interested in new nibs for my King Size. And I think I'd prefer slightly less soft than my 18k #8 that I originally received.

 

And for some reason I'm a fan of the pure aesthetic of very plain, shiny nibs sometimes ... like the one in your photo. 


I like to write or make short videos about my fountain pens such as the Conid Bulkfiller or Pilot Urushi 845 BB:
