Hi all. Would you help me to compilate a list of pens that have a #8 nib, that is to say, the size of a MB 149 or Pelikan M1000 nib? I am interested in both vintage and modern pens from all over the world. Of course, if you know where such a list exists, just let me know. Thanks.

LeBeouf, American pen from Springfield mass.

Good luck !

Deltas made for Chatterley pens. Have 2 & there's a 3rd just came out.

Oh yeah: that one in the Città Reale celluloid... what a pen.

Not the Spennecken 111 Extra (though the nib is large!), but the Prasident 1.....

"Writing is 1/3 nib width & flex, 1/3 paper and 1/3 ink. In that order."Bo Bo Olson

"No one needs to rotate a pen while using an oblique, in fact, that's against the whole concept of an oblique, which is to give you shading without any special effort."Professor Propas, 24 December 2010

 

"IMHO, the only advantage of the 149 is increased girth if needed, increased gold if wanted and increased prestige if perceived. I have three, but hardly ever use them. After all, they hold the same amount of ink as a 146."FredRydr, 12 March 2015

The Waterman 18 and 58 have #8 nibs. I have a 56, and it's the largest nib in any of my pens, old or new, so I'm thinking that a #8 would be even bigger.

Breathe. Take one step at a time. Don't sweat the small stuff. You're not getting older, you are only moving through time. Be calm and positive.

And a #10 Waterman is bigger, and a Parker #12 bigger still.

I do not know if the Pilot #15 nibs are big enough to fit the bill, but they are quite large.

Yes but it is not a flexible nib and the quality of the workmanship on Deltas exception made of Chatterley pens is not what I would call stellar.

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

I can put the #8 nibs in any of my pens. :)

 

Heyheyhey! An ebonite Eastman with a nr. 8 nib... or transparent lucite... here is an idea for the future, when my credit card recovers from some recent purchases :-)
