    Wtb Nakaya Or Platinum Nib

    I know this has been asked before, but dang if I can find a "real" answer. I purchased a Nakaya (directly from Japan) last year and loved the pen from the moment I held it in my hand. The only problem has always been that I underestimated just how fine a "fine point" nib would be and haven't used it as much as I'd like to b/c it's just too scratchy for my taste. I want to replace the nib on it with a medium. Only problem is that I can't find anyone to sell me one! Sure, I can ship it off to nibs.com and wait six months (quoted about a month ago. But I've already taken the existing nib out, cleaned it, cleaned the feeder (I had some problems with some "sticky ink" that neccistated me doing this), with no ill affect to the pen whatsoever, and it took about 5 minutes. I just can't see shipping off the pen and waiting an extended period of time for a 5 minute operation. Does anyone know where I can buy a Nakaya (or a Platinum #3776 - as I understand they are identical) nib so that I can just do this myself? I understand I take on all the risk, and if I damage the pen/nib it's my fault... Blah blah blah... I'm a grown up. I get it. I just don't want to wait so long for a very simple replacement. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
