I was messing around with my pens today. I have a green, blue ,gray and could not remember what nib sizes I had. When I looked I found I have 2 pens that the nib is bicolor and one that is unicolor.
 

Did the Phileas have an option for a unicolor nib?
 

Odd right.

Here is a pic I took now.

I got these 20+ years ago and never noticed until now.

Here is a close up of my 2 medium nibs.  From what I can tell they only used this pattern nib on Phileas pens. 1A33ACD0-CE92-486B-8A86-1E0CD4DBD827.jpeg.c3533bcd435a30dabcc01f775c7687e8.jpeg
I bought 2 of them directly but one of the pens was a gift that same year back in the 90’s.

 

Did they use this nib style on other Waterman pens? and this nib was a swap? or an earlier or latter version? 

 

Any one else have a mono-color nib on their Phileas or is mine the unicorn.

I have seen your two tone nib in some Harley-Davidson/ Waterman fountain pen...if I am not wrong...

I don’t see the Phileas “fan” nib on the Harley Davidson fountain. Looks like their nibs have Harley logo. If it’s on the pen it’s probably a nib swap and not standard. Thank you for trying.

But in looking for the Harley images I found this gold nib Kultur on the Network.

So I looked up Kultur and These image shows an old style Kultur with the gold nib.

It is not a gold nib but a gold plated nib (so it is essentially a steel nib)

Thank, yes of course not a gold nib. The color in my post was just to differentiate from the usual two tone nib that the Phileas comes in.
