Hi all guys, i may have the opportunity to purchase a Tibaldi Iride with a Medium or a Fine18k nib, since i have a small handwriting i only use xf or fine nibs, i was wondering is something can provide a writing sample of 18k tibaldi nib of any size compared to a well known pen or tell me his experience with tibaldi 18k nibs. If I am not mistaken i read here of fpn that i can simply pull out the nib and the feed of the iride and swapping the out with something else but i am not a fan of frankenpens and i'd prefer to use the original nibs. To sum up are these nibs true to their size or are they more like visconti ones?
My recently-repaired, and much travelled Iride has lost some of the gold plating from the clip during its journeys. I don't think the clip is 're-plateable' but I read that a couple of owners have had terminal failures of the celluloid barrels, and I wondered if anyone has a complete Iride cap or a fully-plated clip going spare? Please let me know if you have. They are not common pens so i guess such spares will be hard to find ... I just thought it was worth an enquiry. Thanks
