hi all! Im a pretty new fountain pen user and today at the thrift store i got ahold of a collection of osmiroid and esterbrook nibs (see photos). Im thrilled but dont really know where to start with them. The Osmiroids are mainly italics and all have a feed attached. I think that theyre set up for the 65 and 75 but wanted to check with you all. Ive been poking around on ebay for those bodies, but are their others youve found that these could fit well with? this is my first time doing anything with pen parts so any other advice would also be great!

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.
