Default Where do you guys buy your nibs?

I have taps for a #5 and #6 Jowo I need to get a few nibs dont need to be Jowo just need to fit those taps. I'm fairly new at kitless so dont know if those taps fit different nib sections or strictly Jowo. Any help would be appreciated. Damn this is a deep rabbit hole......

Also,

Meisternibs - Home

http://gouletpens.com

Goulet sells Jowo nibs under their own brand as well as Edison branded Jowos.

Meisternibs and Edison are both owned by Brian Gray who is the Importer for Jowo in the US.

As far as I know, only Jowo housings are threaded the same as the taps that you have.

FPnibs.com is located in Spain, I believe.

Bill is correct, FPnibs.com are in Spain. I just bought a 14K (solid gold) JoWo #5 and a couple of steel nibs from them -- excellent service, very fair prices. There are other sources in the USA, but they typically come with a logo etched in the nib -- such as Rosetta from iPenStore.

If you want inexpensive nibs to start on your kitless journey try
