Seeking /a/ vac fillers which have 1.5mm nibs and/or /b/ 1.5mm nibs which fit TWSBI vac fillers

I’m seeking vac fillers which have 1.5mm stub or italic nibs (do they exist?) and/or 1.5mm stub or italic nibs which fit TWSBI GO and/or SWIPE vac fillers. Do these exist? (They need not be from TWSBI — I enjoy Frankenpenning.)

 

Also, what chance is there of anyone being able to persuades TWSBI to resume making their 1.5 mm stub nib?

 

Oh — by the way — what does TWSBI stand for, anyway? I assume that it abbreviates something, and that it may be abbreviating something in Chinese. I don’t know much Chinese, but I do know that a word which sounds like “bee” Is the Chinese word for a pen or pencil, So I wouldn’t be surprised to find that the company name is short for something Chinese.

From TWSBI's website:

 

TWSBI's name stands for the phrase "Hall of Three Cultures" or "San Wen Tong" in Chinese. The character "Wen" translates into language and culture. The phrase "San Wen Tong" also brings to mind the Hall of the Three Rare Treasures created by Emperor Qianlong as a memorial to three great masterpieces of Chinese calligraphy. The initials of the phrase "San Wen Tong" was reversed and thus turned into "TWS". The last letters "Bi" was added with its literal meaning of "writing instruments". Thus combining the two segments, creating TWSBI.

My understanding is that the TWSBI 700 will take a Jowo nib.  Jowo makes a 1.5  stub.

TWSBI nibs are made by JoWo, but the 700 nib is not a standard JoWo shape.  I *think* a Bock #6 nib would be a better fit, but haven't yet tried it.
