Hello, sure we could provide you a second nib when you would like. Just contact us.
Both the nibs, standard or 18 K gold are from well know German company Bock, you may find online many reviews for these nibs that are at the top quality. Say so a solid gold nib is something more flexible then standard one. This is the first feature that a gold nib have (beside the value of the gold itself). I remain at your disposal!
