Nib Units

Made with pride in the United States of AmericaThe Bexley Pen Company, located in Columbus, Ohio, was founded in 1993 by a handful of vintage pen enthusiasts who wanted to use modem technology to create American classic designs reminiscent of the Golden Age of Fountain Pens. Bexley pens, whether made of hard rubber in the classic old tradition, or of acrylic or other modern materials, offer the style and poise of a bygone era, updated for today’s larger, faster lifestyle.

Note
Note
At this time, Bexley has no 18K gold nibs available. We have unbranded nibs made by the same manufacturer, identical in every respect to Bexley’s own nibs except for the imprint design. If you order a Bexley pen with a gold nib, we will fit one of these unbranded nibs.
Pens That Write Right!

Our nibs are NOT like other dealers’ nibs! Unless otherwise requested, Richard tests and adjusts every nib we sell. To make sure you get the nib size you want, read this.

Looking for a Custom Nib?

Ordering a custom nib is easy — read this pop-up “comic strip” to see just how easy it is! If you order a new pen with a customized nib, I will modify the nib for an extra charge, and in most cases we will ship the pen without extra delay.

2014 Owners Club

This year, Bexley has created its 9th annual Owners Club Pen, a Limited Edition of 100 pens in each of two gorgeous swirled colors, colors that must be seen to be believed, they are so deep and rich: red/gold with gold-plated furniture and blue/silver with rhodium-plated furniture. Both colors feature Bexley's elegant faceted B-imprinted clip. These pens are made of Flexigran, a wonderfully vibrant and astonishingly durable ultraviolet-stabilized American-made polyurethane resin compound. This year's pen is 57/32" capped and 61/2" posted, and it fills with standard International cartridges or the included Schmidt K5 converter. (More size info here.)

The 2014 Owners Club Pen is now available to everyone!

Stalwart

Here’s what Bexley says about Stalwart:

“A pen’s name says something about the pen. A fancy name says the pen is fancy. Fancy dressing is all well and good for looking at or for impressing the onlookers, but does it contribute to the writing qualities of the pen? We at Bexley don’t think so. That’s why we’ve named our newest pen Stalwart. It’s a solid name, a name that says this is a good pen that you can count on, year in and year out. For more than 20 years, that’s been the hallmark of Bexley pens. 20 years from now, it still will be. Don’t choose a pen you can’t count on. Choose Stalwart, and get what you’re paying for.”

What they didn’t say was that Stalwart features shallow grooves on its cap and barrel for a great tactile feel; you can see the grooves clearly in the zoomed images. This pen is 51/4" capped and 61/4" posted. Regal Blue pens have rhodium-plated furniture; on the other colors the furniture is gold plated. Stalwart features Bexley’s excellent steel or 18K gold nibs, and it fills with standard International cartridges or the included Schmidt K5 converter. (More size info here.)

Poseidon Magnum II

Poseidon has risen again from the depths!

The Poseidon Magnum II is the same size as the tremendously successful Poseidon Magnum, with the added reliability and capacity of Bexley’s proprietary American-made piston filler. Magnum II comes in three great new colors: Blue Lagoon, Bronze Sands, and Green Seas. (Blue Lagoon features rhodium-plated furniture; on Bronze Sands and Green Seas, the furniture is gold plated.) At 57/16" capped and 67/8" posted, these are not oversize pens, just good big solid pens that fill even the biggest hand and write like a dream, the way you expect from Bexley. (More size info here.)

2013 Ohio Pen Show pen

With pens, as with clothing, size does matter. The 2013 Ohio Show pen is for the big person; it’s distinctly oversized at 63/32" capped and 75/16" posted! (More size info here.) For all that, it’s not beastly heavy, and it has a pleasing shape that you will find a delight in the hand. But this is the last one we have, so you really need to purchase it now. Fills with standard International cartridges or the included Schmidt K5 converter. In Admiral Red with gold-plated furniture. Click the magnifying glass for an enlarged view of this pen.

Admiral

With pens, as with clothing, size does matter. If you’re feeling left out by all those big pens that are out there today, Bexley’s Admiral is your pen. This subtle tribute to America’s fighting forces is about the size of the average standard-sized pen 75 years ago; at 431/32" capped and 517/32" posted, it’s the perfect size for those of us who have smaller hands or who just like normal-sized pens — but its smaller size doesn’t mean it comes with less than the well known Bexley quality and reliability. (More size info here.) Fills with standard short International cartridges or the included Monteverde mini converter; does not accept a standard piston converter. Black, Signal Red, and Valor Purple pens have gold-plated furniture; other colors have rhodium-plated furniture.

Special Purchase -- Special Prices!

We really like Admirals (especially Black and Cow Hide ones). We’ve made a special quantity buy from Bexley so that we can offer you a super bargain. With prices this low, you really can’t afford not to buy two or three!

Twentieth Anniversary Pen

To mark Bexley’s 20 years of service to the pen community, the Twentieth Anniversary pen features a broad relief-engraved band bearing the Roman numeral XX. This great new pen features a robust shape that’s not overly thick, and at 59/32" capped and 611/32" posted, it’s suitable for every hand. (More size info here.) It fills with Bexley’s revolutionary smooth-acting high-capacity piston mechanism. These Bexley Twentieth Anniversary pens are made of high-density acrylic resin and feature a black cap and gripping section, with barrel in your choice of five coördinated warm colors. Red and Black pens have rhodium-plated furniture; on Orange, Caramel, and Mandarin, the furniture is gold plated.

The Twentieth Anniversary Pen is not a numbered limited edition, but production was limited to one year, and when the current stock is sold out there will be no more.

Cities

Bexley salutes its “Made in Ohio” heritage with the Cities collection. For the first time, Bexley offers one pen that you can easily change from fountain pen to roller ball, as you prefer. It comes to you fitted with a fountain pen nib section containing a Bexley two-tone gold-plated stainless steel nib in your choice of F, M, or B, and a separate rollerball assembly also is included. Ready to switch? Just unscrew the gripping section of the pen and swap it with the other assembly. It couldn’t be easier. At 51/4” long capped and about 61/8” posted, this is a full-sized pen in line with the full-size pens of the Golden Age. (More size info here.) Each Cities model has a colorful barrel and a black cap with a crown that matches the barrel — and carefully sandwiched between the twin cap bands is an accent band that matches the barrel:


Ashland Blue and Brown Swirl
Batavia Blue Crushed Velvet
Columbus Green Marbled (sold out)
Delaware Tortoise Marbled

Furniture is rhodium plated for Ashland and Batavia, gold plated for Columbus and Delaware. The fountain pen fills with standard International cartridges or the included Schmidt K5 converter. The rollerball accepts a standard Schmidt 888 refill. Welcome to Home Town Ohio!

Jitterbug!

Bexley discovered a small cache of 70-year-old Art Deco style pen clips, and decided to produce a pen inspired by the energetic music and dance of the same era. The Jitterbug! is 4" long when closed. It becomes a full size pen (53/8") when posted, so it is easy to carry and very comfortable for writing. (More size info here.) Fitted with Bexley’s excellent two-tone steel nib in F, M, or B, the Jitterbug! holds one short International ink cartridge, and it also works as an eyedropper filler (cartridge and eyedropper not included). Because of its extremely short barrel, this pen cannot use an converter except the Templar Mini! All of the ’40s-themed colors come with black sections (to hide the sins of the ink) and gold-tone clips.

Corona

Bexley has never been slow to try new things to create pens that are better, not just glitzier, and they’ve really done it this time. The new Corona is the first true American-made piston-filling pen since the Conklin Nozac of the 1930s. With Bexley’s revolutionary smooth-acting high-capacity piston mechanism, this pen will set new standards for reliability, performance, and long writeout. And did you notice that clear ink-view window just north of the barrel threads? Just a skosh larger than the recently retired Simplicity, the Corona is 513/32" capped and 627/32" posted. (More size info here.) And, as with all Bexley pens, the Corona comes fitted with your choice of Bexley’s excellent nibs in steel or 18K gold. With classic flat-top styling that fits well in virtually every hand, together with its exciting new colors, this is your pen.

58

Cigar-shaped pens are great. They're attractive and good in the hand. But some of us just don’t get along well with cigar-shaped pens. The success of Bexley’s unproductized and unannounced 56 pushed the company’s “we love vintage pens” button again, and now there is the Bexley 58. Like the 56, it’s patterned on a great old Waterman shape, straight and strong. Like the vintage 58 from which it takes its model number, it’s just bigger: 61/16" capped and 77/8" posted. The 58 is a huge hunk of pen, but for all its size it’s remarkably nice in the hand. It features Bexley’s excellent steel or 18K gold nibs, and it Fills with standard International cartridges or the included Schmidt K5 converter. It’s also fitted for use as an eyedropper filler (eyedropper not included). Comes in your choice of four great colors, with your choice of gold-plated (Au) or rhodium-plated (Rh) furniture. Click the magnifying glass for an enlarged view of this pen (more size info here),

Intrepid

It’s 531/32" capped, 67/8" posted, and all PEN! That just has to be Intrepid. “Intrepid” means fearless, and that’s a fair characterization of Bexley’s big, bold successor to the BX701. Carved with smooth, slender contours, it’s longer and better balanced than pretty much any other pen in its price class, and it’s guaranteed to get double-takes when you’re using it. Whichever Intrepid is yours, it will be noticed — and so will you. And in case you want to write with it, Intrepid comes fitted with an excellent steel nib, with an option to upgrade to 18K gold. Fills with standard International cartridges or the included Schmidt K5 converter. (More size info here.)

Nib Units for Bexley Pens

Because Bexley pens have interchangeable nibs, some owners find it convenient to purchase extra nibs to fit their pens. If you have never tried installing or removing a nib, rest assured that you can do it. Check out our nib swapping instructions.

Stroke width thumbnail

As with the pens we sell, unless otherwise requested at the time of sale, we tune each new nib at no extra charge before shipment. We install the nib in a pen body, fill the pen with Waterman Blue-Black ink, and write with it on paper from the same fountain pen friendly pads we sell, adjusting as necessary to bring it up to the RichardsPens.com “factory” standard for smoothness and flow. Our clients have named this procedure “Binderizing.” The result is an adjusted nib, not a customized one.

If you are unsure about stroke widths, please check our stroke width chart for illustrations of stroke sizes that our nibs produce. To do this, right-click the image at the right (Macintosh users control-click) to download the chart in PDF format (for Adobe Reader). The chart is designed to print on U.S. letter-size paper (81/2"×11"), and it should also print well on A4 paper. After you have printed the chart, find some fountain pen friendly paper and make strokes on it with your own pens for comparison.

Nibs for Most Bexley Pens
Please note: These nib units fit the following Bexley pens:
  • All models with gold nibs except those with smaller nibs (Gemstone, Sleeve Filler, PCA LE)

  • All models with steel nibs except the Fun Time and those with nibs imprinted SCHMIDT IRIDIUM POINT. For nibs to fit the out-of-production Armed Services collection, Simplicity, and BX701, see below.
