The pen and its nib units are no longer in production and no longer available. As far as I know, the pen went out of production ca. 1980-82.«

Esterbrook nibs were suggested, but I found a 9550 nib and it doesn't quite fit. The nib is the right diameter at the threads, but Osmiroid's section narrows after the threads, and the base of the nib will not fit in the narrower section.«

Zoss List 3.Sep.2002 — A. Gnoza wrote: »...Here is the story on the Osmiroid nibs. The older version nibs will fit into Esterbrook fountain pens and desk pens. However to get them to fit into a Dip-Less deskpen a little interior cosmetic surgery is needed. There is an interior wall in the section/barrel of the Dip-Less pen that does not allow the Osmiroid nib to be fully screwed into it. Simply take a small drill and drill out the divider wall in the section/barrel and there now will be plenty of room for the extended top portion of the nib to fit into the Dip-Less pen.«
Rambling Snail Forum 22.Oct.2003 'tryphon' wrote: »Osmiroid nibs should fit Esterbrook pens. "Esties" of various vintages can be found easily on Ebay and from many dealers (among them, THE Estie specialist is Lisa Hanes) and are inexpensive and very reliable lever fillers. The only Osmiroid nibs that won't fit Esties are the recent ones made in China.«
