Osprey Pens Nib-block for Flexperts ( to swap flex nibs)
The Osprey Pens “Quick swap nib-block” was designed as an inexpensive and practical solution for grassroots school Calligraphy programs. The Nib block is an essential tool for maintaining and using your Flexpert unit in the long run
This convenient accessory to your Flexpert kit allows safe and quick swapping of friction fit/ heat-set ebonite feeds such as in our Osprey Flexpert Zebra G nib unit. Please watch our YouTube tutorial video on how to use the Osprey Pens quick swap nib block. As of October 2019, the Osprey Quick Swap nib block is included for free with any Osprey Pens Scholar or Milano Flexpert set. This product is also offered for individual purchase for spares/replacements.
We feel that it is important to always provide safe guidance practices for our users. Dip nibs such as the Zebra G and Osprey EF can be very sharp and they are fitted snugly into the flexpert insert along with the feed.
Please note, the nib block should only be used for Osprey Pens flexpert threaded inserts ( i.e Osprey Size 5.5 Flex, Zebra G and Phosbronze nib units that are fitted with an ebonite feed). Our Standard size 6 nib unit is fitted with a plastic feed that has an end tail, and should not be disassembled using this nib block to avoid fracturing the end tail, instead use a soft rubber grip to pull out the nib and feed.
