Does anyone know of a UK source for a fude type dip pen nib?

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Having browsed through many offerings of dip pen nibs, I have yet to come across Fude dip pen nib.

 

I've been using an inexpensive Sailor DE which has a Fude nib, so conversion of that nib [+feed] to dip pen use might be a vector of pursuit. Also consider the Chinese pens with Fude nibs for conversion and/or parts.

 

I look forward to other Members' findings and suggestions. :)

Many of the #5 and #6 FP nibs will fit into dip pen holders like the Tachikawa.

 

I would simply buy a cheap (~$5) Chinese fountain pen with a fude nib (Duke and Leonardo both have models) and fit the nib to a dip pen holder.

Get an oblique dip pen holder with a brass flange.

The flange can be bent to give you the same effect as a fude nib, where the tip of the nib is at a shallower angle to the paper than the shaft of the holder.

Just been up the Amazon(my husband of blessed memory used to call me "The Amazon Queen" because I get so much from them....agoraphobia means I need to rely on deliveries. A sweet memory. And I know that Amazon aren't to everyone's liking, but Im not getting into that here....just having a blether about pens and such)and saw this, which looks interesting....what do you think?
