Hi all!

Greg Minuskin here (www.gregminuskin.com) I thought I would share a recent repair I did to a rather mangled nib I received for repair, and eventual retipping. Quite a job to straighten and then retip to a nice, smooth 1.1mm stub.

Let me help you with your nib repair, and retip. My turn around time is only 2 weeks!

Sincerely,

Greg Minuskin

Beautiful work Greg!

I am confident that my Pelikan 400NN nib that is soon coming your way will look just as great!

Another excellent job by Mr. Minuskin! Having become somewhat of a fellow nibmeister myself I am even more awed by your work then I used to be. Very nicely done!

Regards,

Need a pen repaired or a nib re-ground? I'd love to help you out.
