    Default Universal Pen

    Who else loves to swap nibs? Iím working on a pen design that will provide writers the ability to swap virtually any open face nib and I have come up with some pretty cool ideas. Itís always annoying when you find a nib you love, but the penís ergonomics or design doesnít fit you. Itís even more frustrating when pen companies make their parts proprietary. Unfortunately, these companies usually make the best nibs. So Iíve set out to make a pen that eliminates all the hassle and potential damage that comes with trying to fit your favorite nib into a pen that fits their hand and style.

    My inspiration came when I saw a Conid sporting a Montblanc nib. I love these nibs and have a few myself, but the 149ís body isnít practical for me. So my design ideas include using a section system that uses a grommet or sleeve to fit around smaller nib units, and making a section with threaded inserts that can be removed to give more clearance for larger nib units.
    If anyone has any experience or suggestions please let me know. Below is an proof of concept.

    Interesting concept. I like the idea of using vintage nibs in modern bodies.

    Wouldn't the cardboard soak with ink and disintegrated overtime?
