I searched high and low (including several pens shows) for that one and the vertex supreme - I could not. I would love to find an aftermarket replacement. It was one of my favorite pens. Please LMK. Thank you!

I don't know if these would work, but I found them in a search.

It looks like either a #5 or a #5.5.
#5’s are easy to find, the link above to Goulet pens is where I get mine.

I have seen the 5.5’s of a few kits. The only place I have seen them available is https://fprevolutionusa.com/. The good news is they are very affordable (less than $5), and I have found them to be very good quality.

Check this out: IPG nibs

You can measure the feed diameter to see what size the nib is. A #5 nib fits a 5 mm feed, etc. My cursory search of the intertubes suggests that Penn State is probably the manufacturer of this kit, they should be able to tell you nib specs.

That measurement only applies to very few modern nibs. Namely JoWo and Bock produced nibs. There is no standard association of numbers and nib sizes.
