    That pouch is awesome.

    I would love to get P45 nibs for that price ($15-16?!). Dang.

    Exactly, around 15 dollars, they are cheap despite being 14K gold

    First try, the nib is very very smooth, maybe the flow is a bit abundant, but overall it feels awesome!

    It certainly doesn't seem to write like any EF nib that I've written with. It almost looks more like a B nib.

    Might be a fine nib, to be honest there is no indication on it .-.

    ItsmeMario,

    Not that it matter much, but if you have you had a good look at the underside of the collar, there should be a letter printed on it.
    Sometimes the imprint is very feint.

    It should be a indication of the nib size / type

    Possibly the letter B ?

    Hi Proteus, the collar is marked M. Anyway, my P45 came with a stainless steel medium nib, I just recently bought the gold nib to replace my SS nib.
    That's the reason why I cannot identify precisely its size, all I know is that it is evidently narrower than the medium stainless nib provided with the pen.

    Nib sizes and marking in the gold nibs...
    http://parker45pens.com/nibs/

    The 45 medium is very nice, and the F is my favorite as I tend to write the l and e very tight
    I have a B somewhere that I have replaced with an F
    I'd love to try an XF sometime

    According to a thread in FPN http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/fo...-measurements/
    A XF should be 0.4mm; F 0.5 and M 0.6mm

    Many thanks titrisol,

    Looked at the parker45pens.com
    ( have not looked at it for at least 2/3 years )

    It is an excellent general guide.

    Does anyone know who the site actually belongs to ? ( There are no contact details )
    I recognize alot of the photography from the past

    Thought the layout was very clever and easy to use.

    I have a 14k A (accountant) nib. My understanding is that it is finer than xf.
