Need To Know What Nibs Fit An Aristocrat Pen


Recommended Posts

I have an Aristocrat pen with a feeder (I assume it is for this pen) but no nib. Being an "off" brand, I don't think there are Aristocrat nibs because the one reference to one with a nib didn't have a "named" nib, it had a nib marked "Warranted 14k 8".


Anyway, I'm wondering if anybody knows what kind of nib I should look for, if I choose to be adventurous.


Apparently the "Aristocrat was made by Beaumel, New York.Generally high quality pens over a number of years." according to Happy Harry in the topic "Mysterious Pen Identification".

Perhaps the "8" means a number 8 nib?

It does mean a number 8 nib, but there wasn't a standard size across manufacturers. I have a couple of Warranted number 8 nibs right now. One is a huge nib, about the same size as a full-size Duofold Flat Top's nib. The other one is about the size of a Waterman #4, which is slightly bigger than a #2.

phaus, that is what I'd read: that the sizing was inconsistent. So while I too would respond as pajaro, just ask my wife, I was asking the question with the assumption that most members knew more than I do and therefore knew about the inconsistency in sizing at least Warranted nibs. Thus I didn't include the inconsistent sizing issue in my original post.


Would it help in sizing a nib to know the inner diameter of the section?

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
