I have very very little dip pen experience to begin with & even less with that. Bit it seems like a good idea to me.

I have never seen these before!

But.... using a normal dip pen is much cheaper and more nostalgic fun. In Holland you can buy a penholder with five nibs for about $5. The make great line variation. I can write several lines before having to dip the pen. No problems for me :)

I have bought some nibs and will buy the pen soon unfortunately shipping to South Africa takes a few weeks.

Feedback will be slow in coming
