My ED's don't burp.

ASA Patriot - JoWo nib unit

ASA Maya - Visconti gold nib

SK nova - Bock nib and ebonite feed


All great pens, nice, large and light.


I'm curious about your Asa Maya with Visconti nib, did you have it custom built for the nib, or did you swop the nib in?

which nib did it fit before, in such case?

I'm asking because I'm also trying to fit different nibs in my EDs but fount that in many cases despite being same size (#6) I still have problems with different nibs being thinner or thicker than the original, and the nib being too loose or too tight.

It doesn't take much to make an ED pen leak. I had a Wality 69A that took great exception to fitting  of a Bock #6 in place of the OEM Wality. It was not a burp.

Maybe I ought to have got creative wrapping the nib & feed with cotton to make a seal. But I don't enjoy inky fingers. So back went the OEM Wality nib.

If I want a ED pen with a Bock nib there's my Ranga 3 that's a 3in1 with the normal screw-in unit.
