Choice of nib sizes

Everybody has their own unique writing style, however most pens are sold with only the most popular nibs fitted. Here at The Online Pen Company we wanted to change that, so now we offer every available nib size on each pen.

We simply remove the nib thats already on the pen, and refit with the exact same nib but in your preferred size.

The process is nice and simple

  • 1. Choose your pen
  • 2. Use the drop down menu on the product page to select your nib size, if anything has a number of days delivery next to it, thats because it might take us a little while longer to get that specific nib.
  • 3. Add the product to the basket, and continue shopping.

If you want the standard nib on your pen, but want a spare in a different size then we also sell nibs on their own. Please see our replacement fountain pen nibs page
