It may be suffering the same fate as BB, 3B and Oblique which have been discontinued.

 

http://www.pelikanpens.co.uk have in their nibs section the italic 1.5mm ( I guess broad ? ) so still available currently. It states only for M800, so it was special for that pen.

 

Your best bet is to call them if you are in the UK.

The IB wil be the last one of the "special" nibs in the M800, while the "O"-nibs will be cancelled.

 

It was just somehow "special", because it normally comes in a special box and was just available with the M800 (not the M805).

 

But you can get it in every configuration you want - I actually have a silver-blue M805 and a Tortoise with the IB...

There are no facts, there is no truth - just a data to be manipulated...

There are so many conflicting stories about the Pelikan nibs I'm so very confused! I thought that the IB nib was introduced for the very reason that it was to replace the oblique nibs, as Pelikan had determined that when individuals sought the obliques, what they actually wanted was an italic. I wanted to swap a nib to an italic the other week, and contacted Pelikanpensuk, who informed me that this nib too, had been discontinued.

If you want a broad italic nib, my suggestion is to talk to John Sorowka, let him know what you would like and see what he can offer.

 

He ground a BB nib to an italic for my M600.

You will have to ask Mottishaw to regrind for you as an Italic because those won't be available anymore

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

Avalon pens just sold me an 800 IB and the price was discounted actually a bit lower than the "standard" F, M, B nibs. If they are indeed going to be discontinued my suggestion is get one while you can, they are superb. vinper
