I’m looking at replacing an Aurora Optima stub nib with a replacement. Is there a competitive source for replacement nibs available in the UK or Europe you would recommend from personal experience?


Are Aurora nibs simple. to replace? Screw out and screw in?


Thanks in advance.

I don't know of a competitive source for replacement Aurora nibs within the UK. Aurora is based in Europe but when I bought my brand new Aurora Optima 366 that had a F nib and asked them if they had a nib replacement service, they said they would need the pen to change the nib and that they would charge me the normal price for buying a new nib.


Aurora Optima nibs just screw out though, so if you find another nib unit, replacing it would be easy enough. Some are yellow gold and some are platinised gold. It would be best to get the same type as your Optima would have had originally.  :)

beside from gold or platinum (or maybe rhodium??) color, the optima had at least 2 differently designed nibs.

I've faced a similar problem. Buying a new nib turned out to be more expensive than getting a Talentum and swapping the nibs.
