I just watched this and am looking for either one of these or the M300 seen briefly in this video.

I'd like a more interesting nib/line, however, and these neat-looking pen bodies will not be guaranteed to happily take any other #6 without shaping the curve to work with the plastic feed. I keep several Noodlers and FPR flex, stub, and italic nibs around for experimentation. (The stubs are almost never wet enough for me, sadly.)

 

Does anyone know a source for Moonman pens that offers a choice of nib? I'd be hoping for a Broad but would put up with a Medium. (In the video the owner's unit was shipped with a Fine.) I am going to spin up a Dremel to learn to "stubbize" commercial mediums. (Yes, I expect to ruin several at least!)

 

Nathan Tardiff offers an inexpensive set of 6 steel nibs called an art pack. I have mauled a couple of these just with a small Arkansas stone. Results are always interesting...

Another  thread on the forum refers to eBay seller "office_supplies_pen" where interesting nibs are on sale. I have only looked briefly at what they offer - clearly eBay and this seller in particular will be a good resource.

 

I will continue to buy Noodler's and FPR #6, #5 nibs. Any other sellers to augment a #6 Moonman nb and the other pens using what looks like a standard plastic (#6) feed?
