    #5 Replacement Nibs

    I was looking to buy eleven number five loose nibs. Does anybody have a list of all the people who sell such nibs? Also, is there any way to get #5 JOWO nibs without the feed? Thanks, Phillieskjk
  2. Hi everyone I posted about my broken No. 5 Studio about a month ago, the end (nipple) had broken off the feed while I was cleaning it. I bought a NOS pen from ebay just for the nib section, so it's now back in full working condition (it's a damned fine inexpensive pen, by the way). Having given it a bit more thought, I realised that I probably damaged the nipple when I tried to make it take a long international cartridge - others on FPN have apparently made that work but I wasn't so lucky. Because of that, I'm now stuck again with Platignum-only cartridges (they do black and they do blue - it makes Parker's cartridge selection look extensive ), as I'm now very wary of anything else - I don't want to have to keep buying new pens just for the section, after all! After that long-winded preamble, I will finally ask the question I started this thread for: Does anyone know if the old Platignum converters from their calligraphy sets (from before it went bust and then was resurrected) work in the new fountain pens? You see, I found this http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0083TZIAW/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3TTQ7ZHX1X92Y which includes a Platignum converter but, as I say, it appears to be from before the company went into receivership then was bought up by Snopake and relaunched (I think - the set has the old logo, anyway, so I'm assuming so). My alternative is an ink syringe and a washed out cartridge, but I'd rather have a proper converter if one is available - you can easily pay £5 for a decent converter so I don't mind buying the calligraphy set just for the converter (though if the nibs are semi-decent, I'd probably use the set as well, occasionally) but I'd, obviously, prefer to know that the converter will work before I buy it. I know it's an obscure question, but if anyone knows, it will be someone on FPN!
