I found something in China. It may be trying to replicate what we use a brass sheet for, but the instructions are in Chinese and my HS Chinese is failing me. Pics:

No...it is way too thick....0.01 or 0.02 brass shims, if needed....and I've only tried them once....in I didn't need them....having old and broken in pens...........vintage.

It's thicker than a razor blade, and a razor blade is way too thick.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:

Something that thick will either increase flow to a flood or push the tines so far apart that capillary action doesn't work.

Great way to drum up replacement nib business.

They might be useful for flipping those little poffertjies, or removing staples, or as small scrapers.
