Goulet Two-Tone Nibs



The Goulet #6 nibs have been a hit in the all-steel color, so we decided to bring them out in the two-tone color as well. These German-made Jowo nibs are stainless steel, plated in yellow gold to give it a look that'll match silver-or gold-trimmed pens. You can expect their performance to be identical to the polished steel ones that I show in the original video announcing the nibs, here.

I'm crazy happy with how the GP ink splatter logo turned out, it especially pops on these two-tone nibs. The engraving on the ink splatter shows the steel underneath, while the GP still shines gold:

The reason we're offering these nibs is because the Noodler's Ahab and Konrad pens are available in a flex nib, and we thought that offering a conventional nib would increase the usefulness and enjoyment of the pens. The nibs are friction-fit and very easy to change out of the pen.

It's been a little while since we first announced the Goulet nibs back in early April, and we quickly sold out of several nib sizes because we underestimated how big of a hit these nibs would be. We've made it our goal to keep that from happening again, so we increased our quantity four-fold this time! It's our goal to never be out of stock of them again. We'll see how that goes.

The Goulet nibs are available in extra-fine, fine, medium, broad, 1.1mm and 1.5mm stub, in both polished steel and two-tone. They're $15 each, or $80 for a set of all 6 sizes.

  1. They look great! Do you know if they'll fit a TWSBI Vac700?

  2. Can you make one in 1.0 mm Italic stub like the Plumix for the Ahab? Or does TWSBI have a 1.0 Italic stub for the TWSBI Diamond 540?

  3. Only 1.1mm, I believe. Both Gouet and TWSBI.

  4. I love your #6 nibs. The steel nibs write smoothly like gold nibs, and your two-tone nibs add to the pens' overall appearance. I don't use them with Noodler pens but mostly with Jinhao 750 pens, trading out their quite servicable nibs for your 1.1mm stubs. But is there any chance you will offer smaller nibs later? Many Chinese pens offer great value (Jinhao 250 and 500, Baoer "Starwalker", Hero 901 jump to mind), and they write well out of the box; but they don't offer the option of a stub. I wish I could find #3 or #4 size stubs somewhere, and Goulet Pens is my "go-to" first choice.
