    Default Nib upgrade for Himalaya V1?

    Hive-mind: Any recommendations for a steel nib swap for my FPR Himalaya (version 1)? It's the size 5.5 nib (a 5 could also probably work). Not the size 6 V2. I've grown displeased with the FPR nibs that I have. Has anybody put something else in that pen and been happy with the result?

    Hey. I’ve found that these FPR pens really only take their own brand of nib , F and M. And their flex nibs being a nod in the direction of 'expressive' writing. The ultraflex ones are quite awesome …when they have been 'tuned', and if money were no option, ( like if you had enough to throw around &#128580 maybe even the gold ultraflex nibs would be good…….
    However, I’ve found that most of their pens will , with a bit of wriggling , take the 'G' dipper nibs by Nikko or Zebra. The super flexible script they can do may not be your cup o tea, but they are certainly an interesting experiment .
