I've recently acquired what I believe to be a Dunhill AD2000.
It wasn't the best writer, so I flushed it with water and took it apart for a good soaking. Whilst flushing, I noticed the converter seemed to "stick" a little and was reluctant to take up water.
It also has a medium gold nib, which is slightly bent.
The pen WILL write - I just get the feeling it could be a lot better if I could fix these little niggles
So two questions really:
1. Where can I buy a new converter? I'm sure they'll only be a couple of quid so I figure it's worth replacing.
2. Is it possible to buy a replacement nib for this pen? If so, from where? I'd ideally like an italic nib. If not, the other alternative is sending it to a nibmeister. I'm reluctant to try to fix it myself, as a: I'm clumsy, b: I simply don't know enough about how to do it, and c: (most importantly) the pen has sentimental value.
I'd assume it's going to be cheaper just to buy a new nib if they're readily available, but if not, recommendations for someone in the UK who might be able to improve the nib (and maybe convert it to an italic) would be appreciated!
Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated.
