Type  14k Nib for fountain pen

Product Name  This nib is the same as you see on the 917 Eversharp Symphonys. It is the largest of the three Symphony nib sizes. It is large enough to fit most Skylines.

Manufacturer and Year  Eversharp, USA, 1950s-60s. (You actually see this exact nib on Skylines from earlier than that, but we know these came from Symphony models so we guess the nibs were made in the 1950s-60s.)

Length  Here are the dimensions:  7.04mm across from shoulder to shoulder,  26.62mm from tip to tail

Nib  These are brand new 14k nibs with perfect tipping. They are "manifold" nibs, not flexible but also not nail-firm, they have a little give. These are very fine nibs, even the "fine" will strike most modern users as very delicate. Please see writing sample.

Condition  Perfect condition, never used.

Please understand ..... We cannot guarantee it will fit your pen or your feed. As is to be expected, you'll need to heat set the nib, and adjust the tines after doing so. We do check the tines under magnification before shipping, but they usually require a bit more adjustment after being installed.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
