Product Description

One common problem for any serious Capless/Vanishing Point fountain pen owner is excess nib units. Because they are interchangeable for all models between the 70s and today, it's easy to collect a good number of loose ones. However, leaving exposed nibs sitting in a drawer isn't a great idea, especially if you have custom grinds or soft gold ones. The delicate tipping is fragile and nibs can easily be knocked out of alignment.

These caps are designed to safely fit over the front of any 2000-2015 Capless/Vanishing Point (including Decimo) nib units to protect the nib from damage. There is extra clearance for slight manufacturing differences, and the nylon powder material should not scratch metal. The caps are designed to fit snugly but loosely so that there is no risk to the nib. A breather hole has been added for nib units that are still wet from cleaning and to guarantee that they uncap easily. Based on measurements of over 20 nib units from the 80s to today, we believe they will fit all modern nib units. Pre-2000 nib units have more manufacturing differences, so fit may vary.

This version is FLUTED so that the nib units lay flat on a table and stay there.
