Maybe my 10-year-old boy is an aspiring nibmeister.

Or maybe he should stop eating pens and pressing down so hard when he writes.

At last, my two Kaweco stubs are completed.

 

The BB nib is adjusted for very dry inks, like Pelikan blue/black.

Down and dirty, my Namiki Falcon <SF> loves it this way.

 

It never complains. It just gets on with the job in hand, every, single, time . . .

I have loved fountain pens for years. When I started making my own pens, I wanted to get good enough to make my own fountain pen. I now make pens nicer than those I can buy. My problem is nibs. I buy kits from Penn State and Woodcraft, but they all come with a medium nib. I would prefer a nice fine nib but dont know if they can be replaced or who would might make a suitable replacement nib. Does anyone have experience with this? I would hate to make a high end fountain pen yet be stuck with a low end medium point nib.
