Spoke wrench options for thick spokes

This feels like a dumb question, but I'm at a loss to find an answer online.

Is there a standard spoke nipple size between 3.45mm and 3.96mm? My Pashley Roadster has really thick spokes with nipples that are too big to fit the Park Tool #2 (red) spoke wrench but too loose in the #3 (blue) wrench. My understanding is that a lot of roadsters and Dutch bikes have heavy-duty spokes like this. There must be a wrench that is made for these nipples, rather than requiring an adjustable spoke wrench, right?
