    Default WTB Pelikan M1000 IB nib unit

    WTB Pelikan M1000 IB nib unit. I'll need close-up photos and writing samples by that nib.

    Thanks.

    that nib was never made unless it maybe was a custom order. 3B was the broadest and long discontinued.

    I know. But there have been broads made into italics. That's the reason I want close-up photos and writing samples.

    Thanks.

    OK, just a language issue then. Sorry. IB is an actual imprinted nib width vs and B with an Italic grind.

    You might be happier if you buy a spare nib and send it to be ground to your preferences. Might even take less time?

    I have both a broad and medium nib unit and enjoy the difference between them. I could get an italic grind with one of them and may wind up doing so, but for now, I'd rather find a good used unit that has been ground. Or maybe just get another M1000 and get it ground.

    Since a new M1000 can be had for $425.00 adding 50 bucks for an italic grind isn't bad.

    Somewhere someone has an M1000 unit with a broad italic they want to sell. I'm hoping to find it at a good price.

    Thanks for your help.

    Cheers,
    Sg
