Hi Everyone,

 

I always use fpnibs.com as my source for JoWo nibs which they custom grind to whatever I want, but they don't offer Bock nibs.

 

Is there anyone out that that not only sells Bock nibs but will also custom grind them for you?

 

Thanks!

    Can a nib be smoothed by psychokinesis?

I think JJ Lax does.

I get mine from Conid. I have them sent via conventional post rather than the default courier.

The Kaweco Supra steel nibs sold by fpnibs.com are (I believe) made by JoWo, but fitted into a Bock-250-style assembly.  Best to check this with them, but if you're looking for a compatible nib assembly rather than an actual Bock nib, that would be another option.  More expensive than a Bock assembly sourced from elsewhere - but their custom grind prices are so reasonable!

Bock nibs in Bock housing.

 

FPnibs sells Kaweco, Pelikan and other brands and will therefore grind those nibs. Their Nib page states that they will soon be stocking Bock 250s

Well spotted - I hadn't seen that!  Unfortunately they won't be stocking Bock nibs till June 2019 - but there are a few options in this thread if you don't want to wait that long...
