Ohto Tasche Nib And The Number 16



Recommended Posts

Hello. In looking at my Ohto Tasche under magnification, I discovered the number 16 on the underside of the nib. Does anyone know whether this number have any significance, like nib type or anything like that? Being able to get a better nib for this pen from some third party would be really neat, that's why I am asking.

 

Thanks for listening.

It may simply be the mold number for that feed.

I have to go look at mine.

tache uses number 4 schmidt nibs so ideally you can use the ones on the TWSBI classic and TWSBI mini also Faber-Castell nibs from the Basic to Ondoro line

Thanks for your comments. At the moment I have only been able to locate TWSBI nibs, which cost twice the price of a tasche pen, though perhaps it might be worth it if the fit is perfectly snug to the feed.

Found a single reference on this site to the effect that schmidt nibs are actually from Bock or JoWo?Something like that.

 

Have you personally tried swapping tasche nibs with one of those to see how well they work? I ask because I tried putting a kaweco nib on my tasche pen once, it worked, but the ink flow was too wet, so I guess the fit to the feed was not snug enough, and the opposite didn't work (the tasche nib wouldn't fit the kaweco pen at all).

I chucked in a Faber-Castell nib which is crazy smooth... but the feed was dry... I would opt to put in the feed from F-C as well as it seems that feed is wetter

      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

      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
