Just throwing this out there, as I figure there might be some knowledgeable folks who have done this already-- are there are any recommendations for nibs (especially vintage) to swap into pens fit for #6 JoWo nibs?  I have a few custom pens made for the #6 Jowo housing and I feel like the standard Jowo nibs don't do these pens justice, so I'd like to change it up and put something unique into those bodies.  Any recommendations?  I'm particularly fond of flexy nibs, but I'd be happy with a smooth writing nail, too.  Interesting breather hole shapes would be a plus (like keyholes, crescents, hearts, etc.).  Thanks!

I’m looking at the question from the other end: I recently acquired a dip pen with a huge #11 nib and I wondered if anyone made a fountain pen big enough to use it? The thing’s about 7.5 mm across.
