I'm sitting here with a brand new Eboya Natsume, broad nib.  Beautiful pen, smooth as silk, juicy wet.  But not wide enough for me.  I'd like to replace with a Bock 1.5 stub.  Anyone ever removed the feed/nib?  Any tricks or thing to watch out for?

 

Thanks for any advice,

Bluto

My L size Natsume came with a standard Bock type 250 (#6) nib/feed assembly. Just unscrew it and replace with another Bock unit. Just for fun, I put a Bock compatible Kanwrite on mine: https://www.instagra.../p/B31pb2dDSiU/

What is the Bock unit used on a small sized Natsume?

I believe the small ones use Bock type 180.

Hmmm. Does this interpret to the medium size Eboya having the Bock 220 nib?

Picking this up again
Does anyone own a Natsume Medium and can confirm which size nib it takes? Thanks

I have the same question.  Also, I’ve gently tried to unscrew the nib/feed from the section, and have been unsuccessful.

Why not just email Eboya.  They're great people and pretty quick to respond to emails.

I have two Eboya medium size pens in two different models. They both take standard Bock 250 #6 nibs. However, not all pen makes that take Bock #6 nibs use identical nibs. For example, Leonardo nibs are a bit longer than the Eboya nibs. The carriers are the same, so a Leonardo nib will screw into an Eboya section, but the Eboya cap will not accommodate it.

 

So, you can swap in generic Bock 250's, Conway Stewart nibs, etc., but not Leonardos.

 

Hope that helps.

Thank you David,
That is useful because I am considering an Eboya. From what I read the small is approx the size of a Pelikan M200, which is slightly too small, but I am unsure whether I want to go with a large as I was specifically looking for a mid sized ebonite pen (many available around but often very large). Then again I do prefer size 6 nibs so I was wondering what nib was on the Medium.
I think the Bock 250 is a nice nib, the one provided by Eboya should be ok with me.

Just comparing length measurement, the Eboya Small is about the size of a Pelikan M600, the Medium just a bit bigger. The Large has dimensions of a M800. Operative word is "about."
