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
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.

Cursive Italic
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.

Left Oblique
Cut at an angle, suitable if you rotate your nib.

Right Oblique
Cut at an angle, suitable if you rotate your nib and write with your left hand.

Architect
This gives a thinner downstroke and a wider side stroke. Giving a nice line variation to your writing. It is sensitive to the angle you hold the pen, please prodide the following information us information about the angle that you hold the pen when writing.

Needlepoint
Reduces the tip to a very fine size, suitable for very small writing.

Increase inkflow
Do you like the pen but want it to write wetter than it is by default.

Decrease ink flow
Do you like the pen but want it to write dryer than it is by default.

Tune and smoothen
Your pen will be inked and the pens smoothness and ink flow will be tested and adjusted if needed

penpunt Pelikan getuned

Nieuwe penpunt besteld voor mijn Pelikan M805 (de oude helaas door een ongeluk vernield). Voor de zekerheid deze extra tuning genomen. Prima resultaat: schrijft zeer goed. Netjes een briefje erbij met handgeschreven "testrapport". Pen schrijft heerlijk. Goede service door Fontoplumo.

Pen writes like a dream

I got my first ever nib grind on Lamy studio. I got a cursive italic grind and oh is it awesome, the pen writes effortlessly and is smooth yet has that beautiful line variation! Being able to get customization for nibs through Fontoplumo is great, I'm the kind of person who's very unlucky with most factory nibs and they usually have baby's bottom or other flow problems when I get them. Knowing tat I can purchase a grind through Fontoplumo and actually get a pen that writes great all the time is huge for me! This is not a common thing here in Europe either when you buy pens online, so I'm happy to see this initiative. Great grind on a great pen, love it.

Wonderful italic cursiv nib

I was very curious about the nib customization, and ordered a Fine Writing Bronze Age pen with a B steel nib, in combination with nib customization. I obtained a wonderful italic cursive nib and I am highly satisfied. Great service!
