    Pelikan Triple Broad Vs Sailor Cross Nib

    To all who own the discontinued Pelikan 3B nib (on any model) AND the Sailor cross nib, i would like to know which one writes broader and which one is wetter. If you could please post a writing sample, it would mean so much !
  2. Was looking into this auction earlier today, namely for the BBB-nib which was the star of that show. I was willing to bid up to around $150-200 or so just for the nib as I already have two BBB-wide nibs for the 100N (one script and one dot script), sadly both without that elusive BBB marking... But yeah, wow, what can I say, last second bids show that someone really really really wanted that nib. I didn't even feel bad losing on that one (instead I actually laughed out loud a bit) even though this is only about the second time I have seen one for sale during the last 10 years. https://www.ebay.de/itm/Vintage-late-40s-PELIKAN-100N-Black-fountain-pen-Excellent-BBB-nib-FOR-PARTS/192698715278
  3. Seems like a number of online vendors are selling M800 BB nibs. I read on Niche pens website that they had commissioned a batch to be produced by Pelikan. It seems however, that nibs.com, writing desk also have them. Was this some kind of collaborative efforts by them, or did Pelikan listed to our concerns?
  4. Dear all, I am about to request a nib-exchange for my Parker Centennial and was wondering if someone among the parker usergroup could share their experience or writing sample comparing the the Broad Italic, Broad Oblique, Extra extra broad . I tend to prefer the broadest oblique Italic or stub nibs, but not at the cost of broad... given that Parker do not have an OBB or O3B on offer , I'll have to settle for one of the IB,OB or 3B which puts me in a quandry. would be fantastic if one of you experienced folks could share a writing sample comparing the any/all of the 3 nibs or share your experience in words (Line width, smoothness, Line-variation, spring, flex etc). Note : I dont have the quid for a custom grid by a nibmeister (but I might dare to do it myself at a later date...) . Note-2 : Parker team replied to my query with the following options : extra fine, broad, Needle Point, Fine Italic, Medium Italic, Broad Italic, Fine Oblique, Medium Oblique, Broad Oblique, Medium Reverse Oblique (left hander), Extra Broad, *Extra extra broad Thanks a ton
  5. I've recently heard that Pelikan have discontinued all oblique as well as BB and 3B nibs. I'm sad, as BB is an exceptional nib, and one that also lends itself well to customisation, which also is the case with the 3B. Anyone else share this view?
  6. I started a thread here last year about Pelikan stopping the production of these nibs. The Pelikan website continues to display these nibs as options and has a whole section (pun intended) dedicated to "selecting the correct nib", with these nibs being options to choose from. Was reading a thread the other day, in which a post from a reliable German member stated that Pelikan may be considering a U-turn on this decision. Any news on this?
  7. Just been looking at Iguansell website. I came across the rather handsome M625, and when I scrolled down the nib options there was a stub and italic option, as well an OB option. Just wondering if anyone knows if this is indeed something that Pelikan have introduced, or, as I think, this might be the result of the unintentional misappropriation of the Aurora nib options to this line of Pelikans..
