Due to personal circumstances of our nib whisperer Bruce, the nib customization service is currently unavailable. Tune and smoothing can still be performed all other options are on hold untill his return.
We can customize the nib on pens bought from us. When ordering a pen, add Nib Customization to your order and we will have the pen worked on by our trusted nib specialist. Expect a (on average) 2 week lead time added to your order. As soon as the pen and customization are ready (and your pen has passed our test) it will be send to you. The following customizations are offered:
Stub nibs have a thicker downstroke and a thinner side stroke, providing your writing extra character. The sides are rounded, what makes a stub still very user friendly.
CI nibs have a thicker downstroke and a thinner side stroke, providing your writing extra character. These provide a larger line variation but are less user friendly as a stub, as a CI is less rounded in the corners.
Cut at an angle, suitable if you rotate your nib.
