Cross posting from Reddit. I just reworked the chart to sort the nibs numerically. That is all.

I find this one from Paul Hoban's book to be useful in that it categorizes them by nib size as well.

For love of it. And yet not waste time either.

Thanks...

Why put it in numerical order.....Original works fine..Folks will think 'tis as Esterbrook did..No point

to mess with what the company put out...Of course this is my personal opinion...Yours will vary...

if it has not already..............

Each of the views has value for a different usage scenario. In numerical order is useful if you are looking at purchasing a pen online and the description says it has a #2450 nib and you have no idea what kind of nib that is. 

 

The chart in Paul's book is great if you're looking for a nib for the kind of writing experience you like.

Hey Gloucesterman -- the 8000 series are a personal obsession of mine... they don't seem to be in any nib chart or advertisement I can find with some rare exceptions -- check out my post here: http://www.fountainp...in-advertising/
