Default Kojent Fountain tips

In need of replacement tip for a Woodcraft Kojent Fountain Pen. Not posted on Woodcraft site. Do they have to be (or can they be) ordered from Woodcraft or are they interchangeable with tips I might be able to get from PSI or CSI?

Thanks for the help.

What do you mean by 'tip'?

Fountain pens have 'nibs' that are held in 'nib-holder's. Together, the nib-holder and nib are referred to as the 'section'.

Beaufort ink sells kit-compatible Bock nibs (with feed and housing). Not sure if it fits that one, but seems to fit most. Sadly, it's probably cheaper to buy another kit to cannibalize...

Thanks for getting back. I made a pen for a guy that contacted me last week and said he couldn't get it to write. I have not seen it yet and was trying to get a little information before I meet him. I don't know if it is a nib problem or what. I was actually wondering if the nib "section" on a Kojent is unique to Woodcraft or if these sections were interchangeable with other styles. As I say I have not yet seen the pen or what he is attempting to use (pump or cartridge). The information that you have provided is very helpful and I now know that replacement nibs/sections are available if that indeed is the issue.

Thanks again

The existing nib may just need some adjusting to write properly. There are some good YouTube videos showing how to address common problems.

Default Kojent Fountain tips

http://www.sbrebrown.com/fountain-pen-tuning/

The last few Bock nibs I used wouldn’t properly feed ink. There was too large of a gap between the tines. A new nib may not always be the answer. In contrast, every JOWO nib has worked out of the box. Once tuned both are great quality nibs.

The kojent is a Berea Hardwoods kit. Woodcraft sells Berea kits but changes their names. Here it is: https://www.bereahardwoods.com/pen-k...s/atracia.html

They may have the parts you need.

Learn how to tune a fountain pen (if you do not know how). the nib can be swapped with a better one if that is what it needs.

Do a good turn daily!

OMG, thank you! I love this kit but woodcraft's mark up makes them too expensive to turn regularly.

Look at other Berea Resellers: Arizona Silhouette, Exotic Blanks, or Beartooth Woods
