Hi, I bought several BAOER 388 pens to have as giveaways to my students as encouragement.  I have grown to like using them at school with my students, so I’m looking for replacement or alternative nibs to have as a backup in case a pen takes a nose dive onto the concrete floor and have the opportunity to try different nibs.

Because of the environment and as my students have learning difficulties, I am not looking for expensive or custom nibs.

Any ideas gratefully received.

Thanks

I don't have a 388 in front of me but from memory they take a number 5 nib

You may find that the cost of buying a new and complete pen is less than sourcing a nib. This pen currently sells on Ebay UK at £5

Thanks. I realise that, but having some spare nibs on hand is a little more convenient than a 3-4 week wait.  5 nibs for the x450s cast about 1€ including shipping.

I guess if I can’t find equivalently priced nibs, I’ll buy some spare pens.

cheers

Thanks, I’ll chase some down.
