I have a nice all black Goulet #6 nib that I like a lot. For the past few years it's been living in a Jinhao 159. The jinhao 159 wasn't that lovely to begin with, and, as expected, the "enamel" is starting to chip off, so I think it's time to find a new home for my nib. I'd like something that's a bit of an upgrade from the 159, nice looking, but not too expensive. Not a Duragraph, because I already did this project with a Goulet 1.1mm stub and a Duragraph. While that turned out just fine, I don't want another one. I was thinking the Jinhao 100 might be nice - a classic Duofold look.
To followers of Ahab threads, Over the past two days, I have turned two unusable dogs into excellent writers. Because I did three things, I can't say that all three are essential, but two of the three definitely are. However, it has raised a question I would love to kick around with you. Here is what I did, which all came from advice from Drone and Brian Goulet: 1. Cleaned the channel with the BACK, not the blade, of an Exacto knife. 2. Cleaned the entire feed with a grease cutting dish soap (blue Dawn). 3. Heat set the nib (thanks to Brian Goulet for his excellent how-to video). 4. Tested
I like the look of the Duke 600 Fountain Pen I found on ebay. But I am not sure if the nib is good quality or not. I was thinking I could replace it with a Goulet nib if it will fit. Does anyone have any idea if this pen will take a #6 nib? I have contacted several different ebay sellers of this pen and they don't understand my question or they just don't answer. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

Are there any pens (other than Noodler's) that have pretty colors and will fit the Goulet #6 nib? I have an Ahab and I do like it, but it is a bit too thick for me. I LOVE my Goulet 1.1 Italic stub nib in it though! Noodler's doesn't really offer very many pastel color pens that appeal to me (and I don't really like the demonstrators), and while they have an impressive color collection, I really want a pastel blue, pink or purple pen. I love the feminine and light pastel blue, pink and lavender Plaisir pens, and how delicate and thin they are. I prefer writing with a thinner pen, it is more
