  RTÉ Business: New NIB mortgage to shake up market?
NIB claims that in some cases its margins will be less than half of what many mortgage holders currently pay.
NIB says it will offer a margin of 0.5 to 0.59 points depending on the home owner's loan to value.
Andrew Healy, NIB's chief executive, said many people were still paying the same interest rate as when they first took out their mortgage, even though the value of their home may have increased substantially.

 PenHero.com - PenGallery - The Evolution of the Sheaffer Inlaid Nib 1959-Present
The basic design and proportion of the nib is consistent across all models with the only variation being the presence or absence of a diamond shaped tab, usually marked "USA", at the peak of the nib in the section.
Nibs were stainless steel, and depending on the model, either plain or gold electroplated.
The nib is very similar to the PFM nib without the tab and is 18 karat gold, with palladium plating on some models.

 Nibs I: The Basics
Japanese nibs tend to be a little finer than their Western equivalents; a Japanese M nib is about the same size as a European F. If you are an antiquarian account who writes with a tiny spidery hand, a Japanese XF might be just what you need.
These nibs stand up very well to being used with a firm writing pressure; and this is probably a good thing, because most modern writers have learned to write using a ballpoint, which requires a firm pressure.
The firmer or more rigid the nib, the more important it is that the tines not touch; if they do, and and especially if the edges of the slit are improperly finished, the nib is likely to suffer an extreme case of the “too dry” syndrome.

A nib is a piece of metal (steel, gold plated steel, solid gold (of various karats) are typically used) shaped to a point, with a tiny ball of superhard material affixed to the tip (usually iridium or ruthenium).
Nib files contain archived or "freeze-dried" objects and are used to store interface components on Mac OS X.
The name 'nib' is a reference to the Cocoa API used on OS X - a nib is the name of part of a cocoa pod, but also an acronym of NeXT Interface Builder.

A ball-point nib is like a standard round nib, but it is also ground and polished so that you can write with it while holding the pen with its nib on the underside instead of in the usual nib-uppermost orientation.
Stub Nibs: A stub nib is elongated sideways, to have a footprint that is somewhat elliptical.

 Nibs III: Flex vs. Italic
Another difference between ordinary nibs and flex nibs, visible in the figure showing the two nibs together, is that the tine tips of a flex nib press gently against each other when the nib is at rest; most nonflex nibs have a very slight space between the tines.
The flex nib’s tines, pressing together, allow the writer to start a line and get good capillary action going to draw the ink onto the paper before they spread; this prevents the premature cutoff of the line that would occur if the tips spread too quickly to allow establishment of the ink flow.
Downward vertical strokes remain the same width throughout when written with with the italic nib, while with the flex nib they begin narrow, grow broader as pressure is applied during the stroke, and then tail off, growing thinner as pressure is released toward the end of the stroke.

 All About Nibs
The nib is the heart of the fountain pen; it is the only part that touches paper and this is the most important part in determining writing performance.
The parts of the nib on either side are refered to as the tines of the nib (like the tines of a fork).
Some vintage pens with steel nibs may be corroded to varying degrees, but overall corrosion is not a terribly serious problem with good stainless steel nibs.

 About Pens - Nib Grinding
Placing the nib against a light background, and with the tip of the nib illuminated by the table-lamp, use your magnifying glass (avoid staring into the lamp) to check that the base is completely flat, and not wavy.
Smoothing the nib is an extremely delicate and sensitive process, requiring a gentle touch and the use of crocus or emery paper.
This is done by dragging the I nib on its side and on each tine, beginning with the pen almost horizontal to the crocus paper and gradually pulling it upright, applying light pressure as it I rounds the corner.

 NIB expects competition upon ASX listing - Breaking News - Business - Breaking News
NIB said on Wednesday that it would demutualise and list on the Australian stock exchange, probably around October this year, becoming the first private health insurance fund to do so.
NIB chief executive Mark Fitzgibbon, who declined to comment on the company's potential market capitalisation, said NIB's move to list on the ASX was driven by the federal government's move to privatise health insurer Medibank Private.
NIB will release details and terms of the demutualisation and listing in an explanatory statement and notice of meeting in June.

Nib is the most important part of a fountain pen.
Nibs are made by a 55 step process including making the alloy, stamping out, imprinting of the logo, making the vent hole, pressing, attaching the iridosmine, centering the slit, grinding the tip, polishing the tip, finishing the tip, and plating, etc.
The thinner, the ingot, the softer the nib.

 PenHero.com - PenGallery - Sheaffer Snorkel Era Nib Codes 1952-1958
Grading pen nibs can be a challenge, especially with the tendency for modern nibs to be a shade wider than their vintage counterparts.
This number system indicated the physical size of the nib rather than the grade, with 0 size being a very small nib, as may be seen on a small ringtop pen and a 6 or 8 size might appear on a large pen similar in size to a Parker Duofold.
Evidently, Sheaffer's nib making machine or nib stamp had the 5 as part of the stamp and it was probably too much trouble to remove it.

 NIB might demutualise - Business - Business - smh.com.au
NIB Health Fund, Australia's sixth largest private health insurer, could demutualise and eventually opt for a public float as it faces a transformed industry with the likely privatisation of Medibank Private.
A stockmarket listing is one option being considered by NIB even though the sale of the publicly owned Medibank has been put back by the Federal Government until after the next election.
Pressure on NIB to look at its future corporate structure is growing not just because of the impact a privatised Medibank Private might have on the industry but also how mutuals like NIB will handle large retained profits, said the fund's chief executive Mark Fitzgibbon yesterday.

The body of this large nib is somewhat flexible, however, because it is made of 18k gold, it is not springy.

Removing the slip cap and posting it on the rear of the blind cap produces an interesting visual design statement, as the curve of the clip is carried through to the curved bottom of the cap, producing a very unusual center band, as seen in the very first photo on the page.
Seen from above, the nib displays the same engraved concentric ovals that are found in the design of the DUKE Columbus nib, which likewise has 'Duke' in flowing script as well as '14K' and the charming '580' (which should read '585' to indicate 14K gold).
This nib should be thought of more as a 'metal brush', designed to approximate the brushstrokes used in traditional Chinese calligraphy.
