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.
