Blue-Nose-Bear

Hello All,

I have recently learned that Osmiroid nibs can be used in Esterbrook pens. Despite this, the only nibs I've seen that look like they could fit in an Estie are these, which I don't really trust (I mean, this is a vintage barbie seller!). Is there are particular rarity about them, or am I not looking hard enough?

That's an Osmiroid 75, a nice piston filler, and 5 nibs that also ft esties.

Looks like the nibs need cleaning, so pen probably does too.

 

Eta. And a box!

And free shipping.

I hope that India ink wasn't used.

I have had to disassemble some nibs that were HARD CLOGGED with dried India ink. This was tricky to do.

A soak in Koh-i-noor Radio-eze removes india ink easily.

You can soak the entire screw-in nib/feed/collar units. No need to disassemble.

I think you need to look out for the Osmiroid "Rolatip" nib units. They come in a variety of grades. Several up for sale on you-know-where auction site.

Tomorrow is a mystery.

Today is a gift.

That's why it's called the present
