Early Pilot Nibs. II. Size 0

Among early –pre-1955—Pilot nibs, size 0 seems to be the smallest of them. I have only seen it made of 14 K gold.

These are its dimensions, but these data should not be taken very strictly—manufacturing processes, quality controls were not as they are today, and some variations over these measurements should be expected:
  • Length: 20.6 mm
  • Width (shoulders): 5.2 mm
  • Weight: 0.25 g
  • Feed diameter: 5.1 mm

This particular nib was manufactured on February of 1935. The engraving reads “WARRANTED / “PILOT” / 14 K / MADE IN / JAPAN / -<0>- / HARDEST / IRIDIUM”.
