Fountain Pen Links and Nibs

Filed under: Fountain Pens — rmay4 @ 6:32 am

These are various links that I have not decided what to do with. It is mostly about nibs and the Number 6 that fits so many pens including the Noodlers Ahab and such and many of the Chineese Pens.

I should check all my Chineese pens and Parker pens to see if there is anything that can inter-change.
