Where To Buy Single Replacement Nibs?



Recommended Posts

It has proven quite hard to find individual nibs without feed online, such as Pelikan M400, M600, among others. Any suggestions please?

 

A touch concerned about buying used online, but would be prepared to do it in a physical shop which is quite rare these days.

It depends on where you live as to where is the best place to order.

If in North America, http://meisternibs.com is very good. Also http://www.indy-pen-dance.com/nibs/ , http://thegoldennib.com and http://www.gouletpens.com/Shop_All_Replacement_Nibs_s/989.htm

If in Europe, things get a bit more difficult and the US tends to have better online descriptions.

 

If in the UK, John Sorowka (FPN's oxonian ) often turns up at pen shows.

Just curious, why would you need just the nib, when swapping out a nib is more work than swapping out the whole unit? You'd need special tools for knocking out the nib.

Not necessarily.

The modern nibs pull from the nib units relatively easily compared to the old ones. Which is just as well, when you have a c/c piercing spigot on the upper end of the feed preventing a knock through.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
