Anyone get one threaded for a #8 nib? Pictures?

 

Is the ebonite version still open for orders?

 

thanks

 

Can't answer your first question, but yes to the second: if you open the Google doc, you'll see it now gives you options to order the pen *either* in ebonite *or* in acrylic.

This is one of the smaller Ranga pen models -- I don't think it can take a #8 nib.

The original post offers an option "No Nib - Threaded for Bock #8 ", but it doesn't seem to be available on the Google doc for ordering.  I agree, though, that it's probably too small for that option to work - and if it did, the nib would look pretty oversized!

I don't know how much bigger the diameter of the bore through the grip section would need to be - for all I know you might be able to get away with it.  If you're keen, it can't hurt to ask!

Possibly a cut&paste error from stock option text...

He said he could make it but would have to increase the size a bit.
