I Broke My Nakaya
Posted 28 December 2012 - 23:08
Here's an update.
Nakaya asked Nibs.com to send the pen. So, I guess that means that they will try to repair it or replace it. I still don't really know.
So, I sent my precious off blanketed in bubble wrap to Los Angeles for her even longer trip to Japan. The UPS lady looked at me strangely when I asked to see her put the packing sticker on the package. In fact, she said that she was going to have to put it in a bigger box. So I didn't actually see it stickered. I should have insisted upon staying and watching that process, but I didn't want her to see me cry. Only other pen addicts would understand.

I really feel your pain and I know I would also be very upset if the same thing had happened to me.
I hope that Nakaya provide you with a satisfactory solution and will look forward to hearing what happens

Best of luck, and hope it all works out!

Ah, the bittersweet start of a happy ending. Time to buy more pens. You know it will make you feel better.
I know my id is "mhosea", but you can call me Mike. It's an old Unix thing.

My favorite little MB 234 1/2 fell out of my pocket when I was getting out (or into) the car at a pen posse, and it cracked on the end of the piston barrel. FarmBoy did his best and most patient chemical welding and it looked all ready to go... and then it re-cracked. Such a short fall and such damage when it hits just so "wrong".

I'm so glad Nibs.com and Nakaya are helping. Surely they will be able to make a new cap and your beautiful pen will be whole again.

Wow! I hope everything works out for you. We do often get very attached to our pens, don't we?

Nobody enjoys an experience like this, but I'm sure everything will turn out all right and your pen will return to you in flawless condition.

Can't wait for the new photos, difficult to take with shaking hands. Two words: 1. careful 2. tripod
I wish you much happiness unwrapping your new pen again, and a lifetime of enjoyment from your beautiful Piccolo.
