Custom Nibs For Lamy Pens?

Does anyone here knows a good source for custom made nibs for Safari/ Vista/ Al-star pens?

 

I've seen a couple of photos depicting what appear to be gold-plated nibs and some custom grinds but am not sure where to find them. Anyone can point me in the right direction?

I'd be interested as well. I have the Alstar with EF,M and 1.5 italic nibs and love them all but it would be fun to try a custom nib on one!

Found this: http://www.pendemonium.com/nibgrinding.htm

 

I'm definitely interested in having a couple of custom grinds on my pens. Luckily I've got a fair share of Broad nibs that I rarely use -if at all!

 

Also, found a German source for gold nibs on eBay, but they're almost a $100 dollars! Following the advice of a fellow FPN member, it would be wiser to buy a Lamy Studio Palladium for $130 and then, swap the nibs to see if the writing experience improves substantially.

 

What kind of nib grind are you interested on?

If you want custom grinds on a Lamy nib, you'll need to buy a standard nib and find someone to grind it! I've spoken to Dan Smith about this, and I know he's up for it (www.nibsmith.com), though the grind costs more than the nib... Plenty of other 'nibmeisters' out there, if you're interested - let me know if you find anyone who sells them pre-ground!
