  • Jason

    can anyone tell me where to find nibs like that? especially that enormous “fin” tailed one in the first video?

  • jason

    Actually, went ahead and answered my own question after suffering from extreme *ahem* pen envy.
    The “fin tailed” one is called a folded ruling pen, and is actually quite easy to make yourself. the spear tipped one is just a ruling pen, and is around $45 most places i looked. the very broad tipped pen is an Automatic Lettering Pen, and appears to be a size 6A
