    Default Doesn't Sailor make a Fine nib?

    I guess that the title says it all.
    I have not owned a Sailor pen in awhile and I've moved even more towards the finer nibs in my writing taste.
    I like writing with a very light touch and a fine or extra fine nib. I love my very old Omas pens with the
    fine flexible nibs, and I've always loved old Waterman pens from the 1920s, but am starting to be a
    bit upset at their scratchiness.

    I have a Pilot Custom Urushi with a F-M nib and I like it. I also own a Pilot 845 with a M nib and
    I find that its a bit too thick for my taste. I'm thinking of selling it.
    Anyway, i started looking at the different types of Sailor King of Pen models and find that
    they only seem to come with a M or B nibs. Doesn't Sailor have any fine or extra fine nibs?

    If you go to their non-KOPs, they've got F and XF.

    A: No you didn't; no, you came here for an argument.
    M: An argument isn't just contradiction.
    A: It can be.
    M: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
    A: No it isn't.
    M: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
    A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
    M: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
    A: Yes it is!
    M: No it isn't!

    Don't leave Platinum out of consideration. Their UEF would be worth trying. Alternatively if you like fine flexible nibs, the pilot Falcon (in soft fine) is a good option.

    I wasn't able to find a KOP (at least within their standard offerings) in F, last time I was ready to buy one, a few months ago when they were cheapish on Amazon.

    I suppose you can always have it ground to your liking.

    Platinum doesn't have a big nib offering.

    It's a bit disappointing that you couldn't find a KOP in F
