Does any one have a source for Dip Pen Kits?  Dip pens are the old time pens that are dipped in an ink well.  Youtube has some vids on making them but I haven't been able to find the kits yet.

Thanx

On the Golden Nib website I had difficulty finding the right page.  The link will take you to their home page, move the cursor over "Pen Kits and Parts" and click any of the drop down menu, for example "14K Gold Nibs."  Then in the left margin will appear "Main Categories."  In that left margin click "Pen Kits and Parts" and then scroll down the left margin list and click "Dip Pens."

Here's a link to a site that sells nib ferrules, but that also has a number of videos on dip pen making.
