Hello all - This is my first time in any forum, so please forgive me if I do something incorrectly.  I am wondering if anyone knows of a pen repair shop that might be able to fix my very favourite Grifos fountain pen.  It is a celluloid and sterling pen, with the sterling being the broken portion. I unscrewed it to check the ink supply in the converter, and when I put it back together something popped and the parts would no longer screw together.  I spoke with a couple of different repair places and they all said that they wouldn't be able to get parts for the pen.  I am trying to avoid having to send it back to Italy for repairs, as I could probably purchase a new pen more inexpensively.  But this is my favourite.  Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, welcome home.  Pull up a stump and set a spell.  The best course is to send it back to Grifos for repair.  Contact member stubnib here before you send it and ask Maurizio if there are other options.

Welcome Avalonww,

 

I'm sure someone knowledgeable about Grifos repair will weigh in shortly, but I just wanted to say 'Welcome' from a fellow Texan. Ron Zorn, one of the moderators here should be able to help you. 

 

In the meantime, there's a plethora of info in these forums. Look around, it's worth the time.

 

Cheers-

 

Clayton

I have a Grifos Art Deco and the nib and the feed are stuck in the cap.  I cannot get them out (the converter will pull out).  Does anyone have any ideas?  I have not used it heavily but I've had the pen for about 10 years and it has been a good camper until now.  

 

I have not abused or dropped the pen at all.  It just suddenly was stuck when I tried to ink it.  It had been out of rotation for about 6 or 8 months.
