Jowo nibs are great!

I ordered 2 replacement nibs one in F and one in M. Both were very nice writers and fit my Montegrappa Marshmallow pen. The price was very reasonable. A note: the nib housing was just ever so slightly too large for my Esterbrook Esties. It fits as partially screwed in but I was afraid of damage so I didn’t force it. Otherwise, I am very pleased with the price and quality. Fast shipping too. Pictured with my beloved Magnum Opus in black leather

I was skeptical of most of the JoWo nib offerings online, suspecting them of being Chinese knockoffs. Because of Galen's great reputation, I decided to order from them. I believe that the nib units I received from Galen are genuine; They have JoWo style Ebonite feeds, though they do not have the JoWo factory logo.
Galen's shipping and handling are first rate. They keep the customer well-informed of the shipping details!
