Bundle and Save upto 20% !

A variety of nib units are offered at a discounted price when you bundle with the purchase of your pen.  Click on the hyperlinked choices below to learn more about the choice of nibs.

  • Choose from Osprey Regular Size 6 nib units in  SteelGold  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.   Just like the #6 steel nibs, the special 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-flexZebra G or Titanium Ultra-flex assemblies:  Ultra-flex nibs are for ardent calligraphy users! You can purchase these as complete assembly for a seamless plug & play, or buy just nib units to swap. The assembly consists of an ultra-flex nib unit of your choice, that threads into the Outer Section, and includes an Osprey converter. All ultraflex nib units come with custom ebonite feeds. It is best to use fountain-pen friendly inks  to avoid clogging the 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 Ultraflex, which is our next generation ebonite feed, takes both a cartridge and converter, which means you can use prefilled ink cartridges or use bottled ink.

If you choose #5.5UF or Zebra G assembly 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 of the flex nib & feed, when the pen 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.

To add the A thru G introductory cursive sheet for free, click on the Instructional  link. Cursive practise sheets for A thru Z is almost complete and will be released in the coming weeks.

great pen, well balanced

best pen I've had so far, well balanced, doesn't feel cheap (like plastic does) yet isn't as heavy as those of metal, has a good size to it and being able to screw the cap at the back is great and doesn't unbalance the pen either .. overall very happy with it

Fantasy Pen Update:

Since switching to Mont Blanc Burgundy Red ink, the pen has been flowing beautifully and looking amazing! The very responsive team at Osprey has also recommended "Rohrer Sketch Ink" which I'll be trying next.

Fantasy Pen made REAL

This pen feels like it came from an alternate timeline, where disposable pens were never invented, and good quality writing and drawing implements were valued by all.

I am so impressed with all of the decisions that went into this pen. The design is timeless, but also something I’ve never seen before. The ebonite material (what they make pipe stems out of) is elegant, and gives the threads a nice feel as you screw the cap on and off. The inclusion of the Zebra G nib is so appreciated, as I almost destroyed one fountain pen trying to force a nib modification. Drawing with it is a pleasure and makes me want to fill pages of my sketchbook. And finally, the ability to swap the whole nib unit makes this pen both versatile and anti-waste.

I do want to echo what one review said about the occasional ink-starving. I have a piece of paper where I can do a couple taps if I’ve stopped drawing for a moment, just to make sure the ink is right up at the tip. I’ll be experimenting with other inks and papers to see if I can minimize this.

Overall, thanks to the vision of Osprey, a pen that I should just be fantasizing about is now siting in front of me next to my sketchbook!

A Magic Dip Pen

The pen body itself is very beautiful (as are the pictures of other models on the website, particularly the Nikko ebonite OKA-RED) and feels very nice in the hand. The chasing is attractive. The clip is attractive as well as functional, and even the OSPREY branding on the clip looks nice. (In comparison to some other modern ebonite pens - which are also very nice pens, often with attractive pen bodies, but usually with metal furnishings that look very cheap, and somewhat ugly branding.)

I got it mainly for use with the Zebra G nib unit (esp. as the flexpert nibs are not super flexy), and it's a bit tricky at times, seeming sometimes to get starved of ink. Something which helps here is adding a tiny bit of something containing a surfactant, like Vanness's White Lightning.

When it working well and the ink is flowing smoothly, it's a great pleasure to be able to write as if with a dip pen, but without having to keep dipping it in ink. So, perhaps the best way of thinking of the Milano+Zebra G nib unit is less as a fountain pen, and more as a Magic Dip Pen.

Osprey Milano, perfect hand feel and awesome body material! Sep 19, 2019

The Osprey Milano is awesome enough that I own three. My first was a black Milano, and it's a stealthy looking beast of a pen. It's made of black ebonite which is a wood-like hard rubber material that sort of warms to the touch. Within seconds of writing the pen matches your body temperature and it just sort of feels "right" in a way that a plastic pen never could. It's a full size pen with a perfect weight and balance. Just heavy enough to feel substantial in your hand but without feeling heavy at all. The grip section feels good to hold, and the nib is reliable and writes well out of the box. Osprey pens have a unique feed with a sexy and expensive looking curve. This curve helps you remove the nib and feed if you ever need to, which brings me to one of the benefits -- the Milano takes a standard #6 nib so your options are limitless in terms of how you set up the pen. The clip is another great aspect of the pen. It has a ball at the end, but it's a real ball. Not a ball 'shape' like on a Pilot -- an actual ball that spins when you clip it. So it looks cool and has a functional purpose as well. You can use the pen posted or unposted - it's good either way. Even unposted it's a perfect length, but the cap is light enough that you can post it without disturbing the balance of the pen... and posting is secure! The pen has threads at the back, so there are no worries of the cap falling off. All in all it's a great pen, with an excellent hand feel. Recommended!
