    Default Lamy Aion Nib Questions

    I am looking to pull the trigger on an Aion, but I have a couple questions about the nibs:

    • I know they are interchangeable with standard Lamy steel nibs, but can you buy the Aion nibs separately or do they only come on the pens?

    • Do these nibbs tend to write a little bit wider line than the standard Lamy steel nibs?


    Thanks!

    Yes, Z53 Aion nibs are available separately. I've ordered a B to replace my EF.

    I don't find much difference between an EF Safari and an EF Aion.

    Where did you purchase the replacement Z53 replacement nib? I donít find them listed on any of my go to online retailers like Vanness, Anderson or Goulet.

    I ordered from La Couronne du Comte. If you need a US retailer, try Dan Smith (Nibsmith).

    Perfect! Thanks for the info. I didnít realize I could get them from Dan.

    Another question: can one use the Z55 gold nibs on the Aion? Any experience with the gold nibs and is there a noticeable enough difference to justify the cost of the upgrade?
