Pens To Fit Osmiroid Nibsosmiroid

The ones that have the threads will fit in all of the Esterbrook pens (I think). Some will fit in Venus pens that have Esterbrook compatible nibs (the ones that screw-in. Of course, as you have noted, they will fit the Osmiroid pens, also with the screw in nibs.
The all metal points/nibs are for dip pens and can not be used in fountain pens without major modifications. Oh, and the ones with the closed ends are call "crow's quills" and use a smaller dip pen holder. They write much finer and smaller letters.
Osmiroid makes a nice, inexpensive, pen primarily for calligraphy.
Nice purchase. Enjoy using them...

The Osmiroid 65 is a sac pen so will need a new one. The 75 is a cartridge pen.
Chinese Osmiroid nibs will not fit an English Osmiroid or an Esterbrook.
I have a 6 nib Osmiroid set, and two Esties to use them in.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.
The cheapest lessons are from those who learned expensive lessons. Ignorance is best for learning expensive lessons.
