Vintage Nibs For #6 Jowo Housings?
comixfan posted a topic in Of Nibs & TinesJust throwing this out there, as I figure there might be some knowledgeable folks who have done this already-- are there are any recommendations for nibs (especially vintage) to swap into pens fit for #6 JoWo nibs? I have a few custom pens made for the #6 Jowo housing and I feel like the standard Jowo nibs don't do these pens justice, so I'd like to change it up and put something unique into those bodies. Any recommendations? I'm particularly fond of flexy nibs, but I'd be happy with a smooth writing nail, too. Interesting breather hole shapes would be a plus (like keyholes, crescents, hearts, etc.). Thanks!
Collecting Vintage Nibs
Vintnorthrice21 posted a topic in Of Nibs & TinesHello FPN family. I am a younger collector and calligraphy enthusiast and I happen to stumble upon a book of pen nibs from my home town and thought it would be amazing if I could complete the collection of these old nibs.

However I was wondering if any persons here would be able to help in and way possible, even be able to tell me if my search will be fruitless or if sifting threw hordes of nibs at estate sales is the only way to go? I'm attaching a photo of the booklet and the 4 nibs I have so far. If any other info is needed, just let me know. I am really excited to see if I can complete this set.
Vintage Flex Nibs In Chinese Pens?
kixiQu posted a topic in China, Korea and Others (Far East, Asia)I love, love, love the look of writing done with flex nibs! Unfortunately, the Noodler's flex nib just isn't flexy enough for me. Does anyone have any experience with putting together a franken-pen on a budget? Vintage nibs seem affordable, and Chinese pens are affordable, so... Are there any guides out there on how to do this which I haven't found? One tantalizing blog post floating around with a TWSBI and luscious "after" handwriting samples...
