I am honored to provide black and red ebonite feeds and housings for the Wancher Dream Pen Kickstarter. Wancher wants to bring back the luxurious Japanese fountain pen, made from ebonite, and decorated with traditional Japanese Urushi and Maki-e artwork. Stunningly beautiful pens!
JoWo #6 replacement feeds/housings (J6A) now available for purchase (nib not included).
I’ve made good progress on making a JoWo #6 housing and feed for the popular dip nib Zebra G. I hope to have this product in the hands of a couple of beta testers before the New Year, and release it in mid-January.
Whichever design is done first… Pilot 742 / 912 FA replacement feed, or Zebra G dip nib in a JoWo #6 compatible housing…

Custom designed housing to allow a stock Platinum 3776 nib and feed to be used in a Bock #6 fountain pen. Shown here is a Conid fountain pen with the 3776 nib and feed installed.
Bock #6 nib assembly in clear cast acrylic is complete. This one has a steel Bexley nib.
I’m also reverse engineering a Bock #6 with a titanium nib borrowed from Newton Pens. The feed design is different because the nib has a different curvature than the steel Bock nib. The housing is also a little different, but it still fits existing pens that accept Bock #6 steel nibs.
Each day, with the help of my son, I’m able to work about an or so. We’ve made prototypes in acrylic of Bock #6 feeds and housings. The housing is more or less complete; the feed still needs tweaking to fit Bock #6 nibs.
I have just put up a page for my custom feed services. Please see Custom Feed Fees for a complete list of pricing for custom feed manufacture. Enquire for volume discounts. I expect to restart custom feed making on November 15.
Standard replacement feeds in black and red ebonite, and in clear acrylic, will go on sale around the end of November. I’ve put up a price sheet.
I’ve gotten considerable feedback from my beta testers on the Pilot 743 replacement feed. I’ll begin selling these next month around November 15.
