    I have never seen them sold separately, always as part of an S-pen package.
    But I have a few bags lying around, PM me your address and I'll be happy to send you one. Three nibs and a removing tool. Just make sure that there isn't any difference in length. You can always shorten them, but you can't really extend them.

    bought used, and am not with the packaging atm, don't remember if they were included tbh.


    Interestingly...samsung DID have it as a part sold through their parts supplier...but it appears to no longer be available.

    Part #
    GH98-40270A

    @Kumabjorn that's such a generous offer on your part. If i'm unable to source, I just might take you up on that. Thank you!

    So an update.

    Samsungparts.com DOES in fact have the item in stock, though it's listed as not available on their website. You have to make a phone order. At the time of this posting the cost is $11.75+ 6.95 for shipping for a pack of 5 nibs. (3 black, 2 gray)

    For customers in the UK or EU, Fonejoy also has the nibs in stock for £8.95 with free shipping w/in the UK.

    Edit: As of this morning it's back on the website.

    So SamsungParts.com cancelled the order, stating the part is again "no longer available." Trying my luck with a random ebay vendor

    Do any of the s-pens (whether tiny or full sized) take the felt nibs? I know other current EMR pens do (dell canvas, I think?), but they’ll have an offset, right? Would love to use felt nibs with an accurate s-pen on a matte screen.

    My heart goes out to you Tiger...and all EMR-lovers out there.

    I swear this could be a scene from 10 years ago, scrounging around the nooks and crannies of the tech world for want of a simple working pen. :p

    No matter how advanced the industry gets, a part of me wonders if we'll always be the leftovers that OEMs always forget—yet somehow always tantalize—with promised EMR tablets on the horizon.

    Ohh, to be a TPCer...

    it's madness when i first looked at ebay & Amazon it was all chinese knock offs....really hoping this vendor doesn't do me wrong.

    Same vendor has the Book2 S-pen with eraser BUT @JoeS has already mentioned it's a very cheap feeling pen, so not prepared to spend $60-80 on it.
