Apparently, Amazon sells a Jinhao X159, the new series with an EF nib. Did anyone buy that EF pen?

Could you show a good photo of the nib, please?

Yeah - just search X159 in eBuy, Nestsy or Amazoff....as differentiated from the plain '159' which uses the more standard & imminently swappable #6. 

I grabbed 4-5 of them a few months ago when I first heard about the 'X' upgrade, to learn/practice nib grinding. Then realized [face palm] after grinding, I have no other pens I can use a #8 on! Platoon, halt!  

 

And sorry, no photo available as we're moving, & my stuff is boxed up in storage. 8(

You grind, starting from an EF nib?

 

What is written on these EF nibs? EF?

Good point. 

But there won't be when I get thru with 'em!   👅 

 

Addendum: 

Here's the 'inspiration' I couldn't find again when posting above. 

Watch the first ~4 minutes to see what can be done with an EF - Architect conversion [on the MontBlanc].
