Nibs & Sections

Engraved Nib

I use high quality #6 JoWo/Meisternibs, made in Germany. Standard pricing includes your choice of a Steel Nib in two-tone, polished steel, or black oxide colors, and in sizes of XF, F, M, B, 1.1 stub, & 1.5 stub.

#6 18k gold nibs are available in XF, F, M, B, BB, OBB, & 1.1 stub in two-tone or silver color, by special order, at cost + shipping. (As of September 2016, that’s  $125 USD.)

#6 14k gold nibs are available in F, M, & B in gold or silver color, by special order, at cost + shipping. (As of September 2016, that’s  $125 USD.)

Large, #8 18k nibs are also available for Large and Oversize pens in F, M, & B in two-tone only, by special order, at cost + shipping. (As of September 2016, that’s $225 USD.) * These #8 nibs are really not much different from the #6. They are the same length, but just a bit wider.

Section Grip Shape: I can customize the shape of your pen’s grip (section) to your preference: curved/pinched, 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.

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. 14k and 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.

Special Sections for Other Brand Nibs– I can make a section for your pen to fit Esterbrook/Osmiroid, Pelikan, & some Bock nibs. You provide the nib. A pen equipped for Esterbrook or Pelikan nibs would be an eyedropper filler. Check with me for any questions you may have. *Note: I no longer make sections for nib brands other than JoWo, Esterbrook/Osmiroid, Pelikan, or Bock, nor do I make feeds for loose nibs.

 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. 🙂
