My first Edge cracked and I don't want to risk putting stress on my new one by messing with the nib, so I used the same Schmidt nib unit from my LiveInYou MiTu and installed the "M" nib (1.3mm stub). I must admit that getting the nib back into the collar required more pressure than with the original nib, but not so much as to damage anything. I wrapped the nib and feed in the rubber gripping material (pictured) and pushed it in until I couldn't get it to go any further. This combination writes so smoothly and perfectly that I'm probably never going to put back the meh boring Schmidt fine nib the pen came with. This is just a lovely smooth and wet nib!
Good deal. Thanks. Great to see it working with a Schmidt nib unit!
Edit: So far no joy pairing these nibs with a Schmidt feed. Nothing but hard starts. There appears to be a gap between the feed and nib that I can't get to go away by repositioning the nib further in or out. Given a couple of hard shakes, the nib writes nicely. But stop writing and it's back to no-go until another hard shake.
Drats. These nibs are well suited for the Kaco Edge. And I have a couple to put to the task.
