Special order nibs
T-Flex - Titanium nib
The T-Flex nib, made of Titanium, comes in one 'size' only. It's designed to flex under pressure, which varies the line of ink produced. I find it more of a soft, somewhat springy nib -- somewhat like the Namiki Falcon -- rather than a true flex nib in the vintage-pen sense.

Stipula describes the Special 52 degrees nib thusly: "The 52 degrees is actually sensitive to the angle on paper. 52 degrees on the paper is considered neutral . When you write more upright the vertical line get thicker and horizontal finer. When below 52 degrees the other way around."
An excellent description (and photos, if you
become a member) can be found on
this thread from the Fountain Pen Network.

Warranties and returns
If an item proves to be defective, in most cases the manufacturer's warranty will apply. However, please email us first so that we can determine the easiest way to resolve the problem to your satisfaction. In the case of fountain pens -- which are a bit more individualistic than other writing instruments -- what may at first appear to be a defect (hard starting or poor flow for example), can in almost all cases be resolved with a few simple 'tweaks' to the nib, which we'll be happy to guide you through or perhaps suggest returning to us for adjustment.
Should you wish to return a non-defective item within 3 days of receipt because it doesn't suit you for some reason, again please email us and we'll arrange an exchange, credit or refund (minus any shipping/insurance charges), if the item is returned in an 'as new' condition. If you've dipped a fountain pen to try its writing characteristics, kindly clean off any ink residue prior to shipping -- to save us both a nasty surprise .
We want you to be happy with your purchase from HisNibs.com and hope to have you join the ranks of our many long-term, repeat customers!
