Hi all.

 

I have a new pen, this an ASA Nauka from India, and I must replace the Jowo nib. I have my favorite nibbers in the US, but I'm in Hong Kong and would like to find someone in this region to avoid high shipping costs. Any recommendations?

 

Mask up and Thank you!

I'm not familiar with which retailers operate from Hong Kong (where I spent my "formative" years, incidentally), sorry. But I think the best way to avoid high shipping costs is simply to order from an overseas retailer that offer "free" international shipping when you buy enough from it in a single order. It gets the total revenue — which may or may exceed what you want to spend in total — but you get it all in tangible products and none of that spend is lost to "services" for which you have nothing to show afterwards; so that's the win-win solution (with drawbacks and compromises) as far as I'm concerned as a buyer.

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct, and valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

Look for nib units that use the same JoWo housing. E.g. opus 88 no 12 housing is the same as JoWo 6. You should be able to find something locally.

Look on Baopals or Pandaboo. Pandaboo has agents who can tweak the search engine to give better results if they see you are looking through lots of results. I have seen retailers selling Bock nibs. I can't remember if I saw Jowo nibs as well. I search so much things run together...

Thank you all! Sorry I've been missing. I ended up inserting an old Jowo nib. But the Opus 88 nibs are really special -- soft and therefore, subject to terrible disfigurement if dropped.
