  1. Does the Jinhao 599 take a standard #5 nib?
  2. First post because I actually have something interesting to share. I've always liked the Jinhao 599 demonstrators.

I got two of the blue demonstrators, and when doing an initial cleaning I reinserted the converters and pushed the nib/feed sleeve out of the section. Not sure if these are friction fit or tacked in there with a little bit of cement, but this is
