i doubt there one Hero 3013 that comes with it but you can always install it on it, it should use #5 nib as i can see so there shouldn't be a problem to find one from china
look on ebay for Gothic Duckbill Parallel Nib it's gonna give you list of pens that use this more calligraphy and broader nibs, not economical to buy whole pen for the nib but there sometimes sellers who sell them separately under same deal, also look at Jinhao 871 there one deal right now in which they sell this nibs separately for like 1$. Not gonna provide any links cause they can expire easily, and as Bob somewhere on forum said "this forum already have too many dead links" as a new user myself thats search stuff here alot I totally can feel that ><

Hope that helps, maybe someone can correct me if i'm wrong

what I found during my search is Hero 5028 with set of different nibs , I think price is good and I am gonna to buy one

Baoer 388! I stopped using Jinhao x750 in favor of this pen because I have smaller hands.

 

I received 4 of this pen, gifted 2 of them, and I'm currently using 2 of them, one at home another at office. One is filled with Pelikan 4001 Brilliant Black, another with a custom mix of mine (a mix of Chinese inks).

 

For me, this pen is a nice wet writer, and gives a little bit more feedback comparing to a smooth x750 nib, but for me it's not a problem at all. Actually, I like it a bit more because of this.

 

Also, Jinhao 991 is a great pen to give away, tinker with or to salvage parts, or to get #5 fine, extra fine or bold nibs as a cheap way. When you search as Jinhao 994 (same pen, I guess the matte version is named as 994 but I'm not sure) at Aliexpress, there are sellers that sells them $0.59 shipped. Also, there are some Jinhao 991 results with fine, extra fine and bold nibs options. I have a Jinhao 991 with an unhooded EF nib, and another converted to eye-dropper.

Yes, Hero is pretty consistent with their sizes.

unfortunately Hero 1515 F nib is acting as M nib especially after some writing  :doh:
