We are also pleased to announce that we are taking on custom nib grinding requests on clients pens. Pricing will be quoted on an as per basis, but will start at $40 minimum. When reducing line width on client nibs, the nib will be inspected upon arrival and the client will be consulted if their wishes cannot be accommodated. This can happen if the tipping is in poor condition, not securely welded to the base nib material, or simply not wide enough to meet the requested final size. All nib width grinds require the nib tipping to be wider than the desired size.
