Hi everyone!


I recently purchased a vintage Parker Duofold in a stunning bright Lapis Lazuli celluloid, an absolutely gorgeous pen.


When I deceided to take it apart for servicing and cleaning, I was disapointed to discover, hidden behind the section a large crack on the nib.


I have no competence for fixing this kind of problems, I live in France and would like to know if anyone knew serious nibmeisters in Europe.


A pic of the nib is attached.



Many thanks,

Alvaro Romillo looks like an expert nibmeister, based in Spain.

It might also be worth looking on the likes of eBay for a replacement nib, they do come up quite often and although they can be quite expensive often almost what you can get a complete pen for it might still be cheaper than having that nib repaired as that is a very long crack to be repaired successfully.

Romillo can do it, he has fixed a couple of cracks for me.
