Which Fountain Pens Fit the Goulet #6 Nibs?

Goulet Pens has offered our own line of #6 size replacement nibs
for a few years now. One of our most frequently asked questions from
customers is what pens are compatible with these nibs. In a
recent episode of Goulet Q&A, Brian gave a comprehensive and
up-to-date list of the pens that we carry that will accommodate a #6
size nib.

DISCLAIMER: Swap nibs at your own risk! Swapping nibs on your pens will void the manufacturer’s warranty on the pen and you will be responsible if anything were to be broken or damaged during the swapping process. Repair from the manufacturer will not be available.

Here are the pens mentioned in the video: 

Conklin All-American
Conklin Duragraph
Conklin Herringbone
Conklin Nighthawk (already features a Goulet Nib)
Edison Beaumont
Edison Collier
Edison Nouveau Premiere
Jinhao x450
Jinhao x750
Jinhao 159
Karas Kustoms Ink
Montegrappa Fortuna
Monteverde Giant Sequoia
Monteverde Invincia
Monteverde Mountains of the World
Nemosine Singularity
Noodler’s Ahab (Does not fit reliably on the Konrad anymore)
Tactile Turn Gist
TWSBI Vac700R

While this is not a complete list of all the options that’ll be able to swap with a Goulet nib, it is a very thorough list of some of the most popular options available. We hope this helps provide a good starting point for anyone looking to change up their writing experience. Not sure how to go about swapping those nibs? Check out Brian’s tutorial on swapping Jinhao nibs!

Have you ever swapped any of your nibs? We’d love to hear about it in the comments below.

    I have never bought a Goulet nib. Yet. I have, however, swapped the nibs between the pens I already have. I plan to get a Goulet EF and F for my X450. For my Jinhao 250, Edison 1.1 and 1.4mm. stubs. Will there ever be a Goulet #5 nib? Just curious, as I do not need an extra feed and housing laying around. I plan to get a Nemosine Singularity soon, so I may get a Re-entry nib with that. I love the scorched look!

    Are your nibs compatible with the TWSBI Classic?

  • Tom Johnson

    I have Goulet nibs in my two Vac-700 pens and my (older) ebonite Konrad and in my ebonite Neponset. I have also slipped a Goulet nib in a dip pen staff to make a quick test of a new ink. It works fine, but you have to keep dipping if you write more than several words.

    It seems apparent that the Nemosine nibs will also fit in all the pens listed here too.

  • I was going to toss the Ahab but then I tried a Goulet stub. Now it is a good pen.

  • I’ve swapped Goulet nibs into both Noodler’s and Jinhao pens. For a Jinhao, I essentially consider it a given that I’ll swap the nib. A Jinhao on its own is a pretty good bargain, but if you put a GPC nib in it, it becomes a really solid writer for not a lot of cash. I don’t think I have a Jinhao with its original nib in it (which are certainly functional, but pretty mediocre).

    One thing I always think would be nice when browsing the site, is a link to all compatible accessories (converters, nibs, and cartridges) or a tab at the bottom where the reviews are, that list these items.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Definitely something I can suggest, Diya. 🙂

  • Adam Tang

    Which model has the wettest feed that is able to constantly supply adequate ink flow to the Goulet #6 1.1mm and 1.5mm?

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Jinhaos are always a safe bet as far as wetness goes!

  • David

    Noodler’s Ahab (Does not fit reliably on the Konrad anymore)

    What happened to the Konrad to make it an unreliable fit wit the GP #6 nibs? It used to work OK.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      The Goulet nibs do not fit comfortably on the Konrad feed 100% of the time. Some have still had success with it but we do not feel comfortable guaranteeing that it will always fit.

  • Sarcasticism

    So is it possible to put the Ahab flex nib on any of these pens as well? Like a Jinhao x750 for example?

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      You could theoretically try it but the feed flow from these pens may not be great enough to feed the flex nib reliably for writing. Flex Nibs require a much wetter flow to work.
