Mental note: Pen nibs

I should replace my pen nibs more often. When I did so today, the difference in comfort level and control over the line width was noticeable. Problem is, I have about a quarter left of the 144 nibs that Sven van der Hart purchased from the manufacturer several years ago, and I fear running out and not finding a source for replacement. A year ago I googled for the brand and type, and didn't find any leads worth pursuing.

The pens are HIRO Leonardt 111 EF, and although it's theoretically possible to get them from local art stores, my experiences with them can best be summed up as 'pot luck'.

Obligatory comic link, but man does that scan look terrible. One to remaster sooner, rather than later.
