Feature Request: Nibs

I love the work that you’ve done on Fountain Pen Companion (so much so that I did become a pateron).

I’ve recently started buying “extra” nibs, some custom ground. It would be nice to have a way to track “extra” or “spare” nibs, and be able to associate them with a particular pen.

So, like “my pens” and “my inks” you would have “my nibs” and those nibs could be “attached” to a pen, almost like currently inked pairs a pen in my collection with an ink in my collection. Maybe a currently nibbed? (lol)

I could see fields such as “type” i.e. Bock / JoWo / Schmidt etc., “grind” i.e. Architect, Stub, EF, F, M, B, BB, etc., possibly “flow” i.e. wet / dry / etc.


That’s something that’s coming (eventually). It’s a bit bigger though, as I haven’t yet thought it through fully. It’s a feature that not everyone will be using so it would need to be done in a way that doesn’t get in the way, i.e. if you don’t care you can just continue entering nibs the way it’s being done right now.

When you get closer to doing this, if you want someone to bounce ideas off of, I’d be happy to give feedback.
