Nibs That Suit The Parker Frontier



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?

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
