Hello, I purchased my first fountain pen a while back, but the nib got pretty bent because I was still learning how to write with a fountain pen. The pen is a University and it has an Irgo 8 nib. I need to find a replacement but I dont know what to buy exactly... Does anyone know what nib I would need?

Hello and Welcome to active posting on FPN!! Glad to have you join in!!

 

Not sure where to find that nib replacement but your current nib might be salvageable. Can you post a closer pic of the nib itself?

I wish it was salvageable but the tine had been bent near the top of it and broke off

If you can measure your nib’s dimensions it might be possible to search for a replacement nib on eBay. It’s not impossible that you can replace it with a vintage nib, which might be fun to play with.
