Nibs & Sections

Engraved Nib


I use high quality JoWo nibs, made in Germany. Standard pricing includes your choice of a Steel Nib in two-tone, polished steel, or black oxide colors. 18k nibs are also available.

See the chart below for all available nib options.




18k Gold (Two-tone & Rhodium Silver)










Steel (Two-Tone, Polished Steel, & Black Oxide)

Included in the base pen price. $25 for extra nibs.







Section Grip Shape: I can customize the shape of your pen’s grip (section) to your preference: curved, tapered with a lip, or straight. If not specified, I will use the standard grip for the model. *Please note that I cannot make hooded nib sections.

Here are some examples of my curved grips, which are basically just a gentle curve. I can make the curve deeper if you prefer:

Here are some examples of my grips that taper down to a lip. I can make the lip a soft lip or a more defined, sharp lip.

Section Grip Length: Most models have a standard length grip of 18mm or 23mm. In many cases the length can be extended. Note that on some models, extending the grip length will also require an extension of the cap length to accommodate the nib.

Extra Nibs – Extra nibs can be ordered in addition to the one that comes with your pen. Steel nibs are $25 each. 18k nibs are as priced above. All nibs simply screw in and can be swapped out easily.

Extra Sections – Extra sections to fit Scriptorium Pens (JoWo) nibs are available for $50. Some people like to have grip sections in a variety of colors to swap out when the mood strikes, or just to change the personality of the pen.

Steel Nib Colors Available:

Polished Steel & Two-Tone (Note: The Black Ruthenium color has been replaced with Black Oxide, seen below.)

 Nib Tuning:

I test and tune each nib carefully before sending it out! I align nibs and smooth them to ensure a pleasant writing experience and make sure the nib has a good flow. Please note: I am not a nibmeister. I do not do custom nib grinding or custom flow work. I will be happy to recommend a professional nibmeister should you desire those services. I can even send the completed pen directly to your nibmeister of choice for you. 🙂

  1. Hi,
    I plan to purchase the 14k Jowo size 6 EF flex nib with ebonite feed from fpnibs and then have it fixed to a Scriptorium pen of my choice (i’m eyeing 3 models to choose from). But before I proceed with the purchase, I need to know if you can customize your section to accommodate the fpnibs unit.

    Thanks you,
