Plumix is a proprietary size.

 

OP, if you're okay with proprietary nibs, I can sell you a Dollar 717i pen with a stub (self-ground) for $10 shipped. I can do the same with a Jinhao x750 that I'll grind down, if you want. The Jinhaos use a #6. $12 shipped for the Jinhao.

Fairly sure the Nemosine is the cheapest youll find - Id bet if you do find anything cheaper itll likely be poor quality and not representative of a good stub. Nemosine also offers a 0.6 and 0.8mm - less drastic than your usual 1.0/1.1 so less of a disappointment if you decide you dont love the line variation.

EDIT - not sure why my posts keep dropping all the apostrophes...

If you want to try a hand-ground nib, fpnibs.com has the for 20 euros. I've never done business with them, but I hear they do top notch work. Otherwise they also have the untipped 1.1 and 1.5 nibs too.

Some online pen shops carry Knox nibs in the 1.1 mm size for around $6.00. Not a great nib, but a good one. You can buy a $3.00 Noodler's nib and cut it with a pair of diagonal pliers to make a stub nib. Usually, need to round off the edges and corners with a stone to get it to work.

 

Would recommend trying the Goulet 1.1 mm nibs or the Nemosine. The quality in both nibs is better than most, as good as a custom stub in many cases. And if you get a poor nib, you won't really be trying a stub nib.

 

Best of luck,


Yours,

I picked up a Nemosine re-entry stub and it needed some work to make reasonable. Also picked up a Goulet Jowo and it needed some work also. I would say roll the dice on a Monteverde. Those have been pretty good overall for me. Still needed some work, but a good stub.
