Has anyone had a nibmeister work on an Esterbrook nib.  If so, which nib and are you satisfied?

i think that would be pretty futile, since esterbrook nibs are cheap, plentiful, and widely available with pre-determined writing needs available in different nibs.

What type of nib work are you looking for?


FP Ink Orphanage-Is an ink not working with your pens, not the color you're looking for, is never to see the light of day again?!! If this is you, and the ink is in fine condition otherwise, don't dump it down the sink, or throw it into the trash, send it to me (payment can be negotiated), and I will provide it a nice safe home with love, and a decent meal of paper! Please PM me!For Sale: TBA

Yes. Mark Bacas ground a 1550 with a broken tine into an italic.

Baptiste knew how to make a short job long

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

That's what I needed Corgicoupe.  I was thinking of.  I was considering having a 9968 done into a stub.  I have a number of Esterbrooks and nibs and I really like them.   Thanks
