    I don't know if that is the case, Detman101. The nibs appear to be the brainchild of someone (Jeffery, I think) over at Blue-Dew in Singapore. If Aaron's Pens are using the same nib I have to conclude that they are buying them in from Blue-Dew. I have no evidence to the contrary.

    @guyy, according to the video by Brown, the feed is actually ebonite. As far as tipping is concerned, it is an issue with vintage dip nibs, but the practice IIRC was to regrind a worn nib with a bit of an abrasive material. Not sure how many calligraphers still do that though.

    Edit to add: I posted this topic on a calligraphy forum and some members are going to try them out and report back. Bear in mind that these members are pointed pen calligraphers so won't be phased by the lack of tipping. My guess is that they'll be concentrating on hairlines, swells and ink flow.
