Upgrading a Kaigelu 316 nib

Our Bock size 6 nibs are a perfect fit if you want to upgrade the nib in the ever popular Kaigelu 316 fountain pen

The existing nib and housing can pretty easily be knocked out. Although the Kaigelu 316 has a threaded Section, the housing is not threaded and is lightly glued in place. A Bock size 6 nib in a Bock housing can then be fitted in its place, which again does not interact with the pen’s Section thread, but is an excellent push fit with no glue required.

You will also need to replace the ink converter – our Premium push fit converter is ideal for the purpose, as it turns out the the “standard international” converter supplied with the Kaigelue 316 is not as “standard” as it should be.

Nib special orders

We’re happy to order Bock nibs that are not in out usual range of stocked nibs, and here are two we recently supplied.

On the left is a Bock 250 size 6 in solid palladium, and on the right is a Bock 380 which is a whopping size 8, in solid 18k gold. We were asked to supply it with no engraving beyond it’s hallmark.

A bit pricey, but both beautiful nibs and the 380 comes with an ebonite feed
