( 2 Reviews )

This Venus replacement nib and feed unit marked Extra Fine is a Firm Extra Fine nib made of stainless steel. These are interchangeable with Esterbrook nib units and to change them, you simply unscrew one and screw in another one. These will fit into vintage Esterbrook and some Osmiroid pens.

Please note that Venus nib units are designed to fit vintage Esterbrook pens. These will fit into the modern Esterbrook pens that can accept the MV (Modern to Vintage) Nib adapter, but only by using that adapter.

Venus XF nib for vintage Esterbrook pens

I prefer extra fine fountain pen nibs, and have long used the vintage Esterbrook "Master Renew-Point" 9450 (extra firm posting) nib as the performance standard by which all XF nibs (past or present) are measured. The current production Venus XF nib for vintage Esterbrook pens compares favorably to my 9450 nib collection. Writing less than half a page worked through the Venus nib's initial scratchiness. The Venus nib puts down an XF line very comparable to my 9450 nibs. The Venus nib line is slightly bolder than the 9450's due to the Venus being a wetter nib -- not a bad thing, as many Esterbrook posting nibs don't deliver quite enough ink to the business end, and are prone to dry-out between uses. At its $10 price tag, I believe that the Venus XF nib is a very workable option for vintage Esterbrook users.
