For a long time we’ve been asked, and now we’re finally able to deliver Goulet #6 size black nibs! These are the exact same high-quality Jowo-brand German nibs you’ve seen in our polished steel and two-tone colors, but now with a slick black oxide finish to stealth out any pen that’ll take a #6 nib.
They’re available in a full range of sizes, including:
These nibs are smooth with a hint of feedback, and have a medium to generous flow. They have a stellar reputation, just check out the ratings and reviews that have been left on our site.
One thing worth noting is that the process Jowo uses to blacken these nibs does create some variability in the true blackness of the nibs. Some are showing more of a dark gunmetal and some are fully black. We’re going back-and-forth with them about this and they’re going to see what they can do to improve the consistency. The difference is subtle, and we wanted to be clear about it in the efforts of full disclosure.
Now keep in mind, when you’re swapping any nib onto another brand’s pen (which you’re doing with these nibs in all cases), the manufacturer of that pen won’t cover these nibs in their warranty. Just recognize, this is a hack and you’re going rogue here. But sometimes with great risk, comes great reward. 🙂
