One Pen, Many nibs: Choice of Additional Nibs:

Keeping in line with the Osprey philosophy of interchangeable nib units, a wide variety of nib units are offered below that will work with this pen.  Click on the hyperlinked choices to learn more about the nibs.

  • Choose from Osprey Regular Size 6 nib units in Steel or 2ToneAll Regular nibs used for everyday writing, come with a plastic feed and accept international standard converters or pre-filled ink cartridges, giving you the flexibility to use either bottled ink or pre-filled ink cartridge. The pen is fitted with an Osprey custom converter by default and is packaged in a premium pen box.
  • #6 Steel  Economical Special Grinds such as the Architect Broad, Architect BB, Zoom BB, Broad Left-Oblique or Broad Right-Oblique, Broad-Stub or Double Broad Stub. Similar to the Regular Size 6 nibs, the Speciality Grind nibs also accept international standard converters or pre-filled ink cartridges, giving you the flexibility to use either bottled ink or pre-filled ink cartridge or use with Osprey custom converter. 
  •  #5.5 Ultra-flex#6 Ultra-flex (second generation)Zebra G or Titanium Ultra-flex assemblies:  Ultra-flex (UF) nibs are for ardent calligraphy users! You can purchase these as complete assembly for a seamless plug & play experience, or buy just nib units to swap. The assembly consists of an ultra-flex nib unit of your choice, which threads into the Outer Section of the pen, and comes with an Osprey converter. Only fountain-pen friendly inks  are recommended to avoid clogging the feed.

All ultra-flex and Zebra G nib units come with ebonite feed. Size 5.5 Ultra-flex, Zebra G Flex and Titanium Ultra-flex are non-cartridge type, meaning they do not take any prefilled ink cartridges or international converters. They are made to work with custom Osprey converters. Size 6 Ultra-flex nib units (second generation) on the other hand, take both, cartridge or  converter, which means you can use prefilled ink cartridges or use bottled ink.

    If you choose #5.5Ultra-flex or Zebra G flex nib-units/assemblies, be sure to add a nib-block kit , if you don't already have one. You can download a maintenance guide that helps in easy disassembly and assembly, when the feeds get clogged over time with use. The nib block does not accommodate size 6 nibs, you will instead need to use the grip provided in the kit for disassembly and assembly.

    Love this pen

    I bought the Scholar, Duofold-orange.
    The pen thouroughly lived up to my expectations upon receiving it.
    Very nice finish, on par with expensive brands.
    The packaging was nice and adress label was filled out without one single mistake, that is becoming rare these days.

    Excellent medium-sized, entry-level pen

    TLDR: smooth writer, well constructed, a little small for a Duofold style, but excellent at this price.

    I have been writing with this for a day or so with X-Feather, and so far I'm really impressed. The steel nib is as smooth as a Jowo, the ink flow is very good, and the material feels lightweight but substantial. The color is a bright but not obnoxious orange. The black section and finials have a high polish. Best of all, the cap posts deeply and securely, unlike pretty much every other Duofold-style pen. (Usually you can post or you can use a Duofold-style pen, but not both). I haven't tinkered too much with it yet, but it does appear that a standard #6 nib swap may be possible.

    The only two drawbacks are trivial: first, I really wanted a black one, but not enough to wait for Osprey to restock them, apparently. Second, it seems a little smaller than the other Duofold-style pens I have and narrower at the section. It's not small by any stretch, but I tend to prefer girthier pens.

    So my own impatience and size preferences aside, this is a great pen and really outstanding at this price point.

    More than a great pen

    Few pen companies can match Osprey's value proposition, and fewer still can say that their very act of selling affordable, quality writing instruments has a direct positive impact on childhood education. The aptly named Scholar is a great fountain pen with a fantastic nib. It is a reliable workhorse that gives me tremendous satisfaction to use. And if you have a problem with this or any of their pens, Osprey's customer service is second to none.

    Gorgeous full size pen!

    The Duofold Orange Osprey Scholar has a classic orange and black look with a full size body and large #6 nib. It's rare to get a high quality full size pen & nib at this price, and the body is actually turned from a solid piece of acrylic! (Most pens are injection molded and have a seam down the side.)

    The weight of the pen is just right, and the length adds a balance such that you could write for hours without fatigue. Thumbs up!

    Classic Look Classic Performance

    There is nothing about this pen that I don’t love. The weight is light and not burdensome on the hand. The nibs are all smooth and perform every single time. I never have any issues out of this pen. Whether I have just inked it or if it has sat unused for a week it performs perfectly every time.

    I have a few extra nibs for my scholar with the special nib collar to fit. My favorite is the Esterbrook nibs for this pen. Ultra fine writing with perfect ink flow and no hard starts or skipping. It’s beautiful and performs perfectly every time. I reach for my scholar more than pens by larger brands 9 out of 10 times. Comfort and performance makes this a daily carry for me.
