Pelikan Interchangeable Nibs
Available for Purchase

PELIKAN INTERCHANGEABLE NIBS

Pelikan's interchangeable nib units are easily swapped at home - one favorite pen can have several nibs for different purproses. For instructions on how to change a Pelikan nib, please see the bottom of this page. All nibs are original manufacturer and factory new.

Please note that Pelikan has now discontinued production of all tipping sizes other than Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, and Broad. We have small remaining numbers of some of the discontinued "exotic" nibs still available - see the listings below for more details on remaining stock.


1

The Pelikan M1000 nib, 18C, two-tone is well-suited for tip customization.  The body of this large nib is somewhat flexible, however, because it is made of 18k gold, it is not springy. It makes a lovely stub, italic or oblique writer. EF, F, M, B: retail $577.50, our price $472. OM, OB, BB, OBB, 3B, O3B: our price $525.


2
Pelikan M800, 18C, two-tone nib is good for all kinds of point modifications, but limited as to how flexible it can be made. EF, F, M, B: retail $352, our price $282. OM, OB, OBB, O3B, IB: our price $320. 

3
Pelikan M650 old version two-tone 18C nib unit. This is an earlier nib with the larger circular logo and simpler scrollwork (traditional imprint).  It is correct in the earlier Souverän M600 and M650 pens as well as the M730. We are limited to F, M, BB, OB and OBB. Our price $256

4
Pelikan M650/620 two-tone 18C nib unit. This is the nib supplied with the M620/M640 cities series pens. It has the more embellished imprint, just like the 14K version of this size unit.  This nib, when set deeply enough, also fits the M400 and M200 series. EF, F, M, B: retail $286, our price $229. OM, OB, BB, OBB, our price $260.

5
Pelikan M640/625 single-tone rhodium-plated 18C nib unit. This is the nib supplied with the M625/M640 fountain pens. This nib, when set deeply enough, also fits the M400 and M200 series. EF, F, M, B: retail $415.80, our price $332OM, OB, BB, OM, OB, OBB: our price $378.

Pelikan M250 single-tone 14C nib unit. This was made for some export pens, such as the M400 "Brown Tortoise".  It was used in the gold plated model 730, introduced in 1988 (set deeply enough this nib unit also fits an M200, M250 & M400). It is a high quality nib, suitable for customization, especially extra flexibility. This nib has now been discontinued by Pelikan, but we have a small number in OM, OB, BB, and OBB still available. Our price: $189.

This is a gold plated steel nib made for the M200 pen. We are not very fond of steel nibs. They do not hold up as well as gold and are less responsive in the hand. Sales of these steel nibs are final. We have XF, F, M, & B available. $46.00

12
This is a non-plated steel nib made for the M200 pen. We are not very fond of steel nibs. They do not hold up as well as gold and are less responsive in the hand. Sales of these steel nibs are final. We have F, M, & B available. $46.00

 

Pelikan 14k and 18k nib units are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique - see our nib customizations page for more information.

  The image above is an M1000 Pelikan with our reconditioned iridium wire tipped STUB nib.  The picture is extremely wide angle so that I could take in the point, the writing sample and the pen.

 

INSTRUCTIONS ON CHANGING PELIKAN NIBS

All contemporary intentionally interchangeable nib units we know of (Pelikan, some Aurora, Esterbrook, Parker {Sonnets, not 75s which slide in}, etc.), screw in using the conventional right-hand thread. Using your fingers only (don't use any type of tool), grip the nib close to the barrel, away from the point, and gently but firmly unscrew.  Do not grip the nib by the edges, since doing so could misalign the tines.  If the pen is not new, dried ink could conceivably be "gluing" the current nib into the section and it may seem like it won't unscrew.

In that case, soak the nib end of the pen, up to about 3/4" over the edge of the section, in household ammonia for ten minutes or so, and flush in and out of the reservoir during the soaking, using the pen's converter or a de-soldering bulb (available from Radio Shack), to clean out the filling system itself. This should dissolve any dried ink.   Dry off the nib/feed/section and try to unscrew the nib again.  You may want to use a soft cloth or tissue so that your fingers don't get soiled.  Some paper towels are coarse enough to scratch the gold finish on fountain pens and nibs, therefore we recommend soft cloths or soft tissues.

When screwing in a nib, gently but firmly tighten into the section, and realize that it will require about the same amount of force to remove the nib as was required to tighten it.  Do not over-tighten.
