Nibs That Suit The Parker Frontier



Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

A few weeks ago, I happened to stumble upon my 2 year old Parker Frontier which I had cast aside due to it's frustrating nib problems. The gold plated nib that it came with was so scratchy that I tried grinding it and ended up ruining it. Now it has an ultra cheap steel nib by Reynolds on which leaks like anything. I really like the design of the pen that I would like to find a suitable nib for it. Nibs of all sorts - flex, standard, italic, stub, bold, fine are equally welcome (though an italic or flex would be really good to have).

Parker made an italic for this pen. I have one. I think it's called Gothic in the sales literature.

Frontier uses a proprietary threaded in nib unit where the nib clips onto the feed. No 3rd party nib is going to fit it well. Write to luxor and see if they will sell you a new nib unit.

Is there a way to get one? I looked it up but found nothing. By the way, would you happen to know the width or anything that can be used to specify the size of the nib so that I don't end up buying a nib that doesn't fit it?
