I have a problem with my Stipula Passaporto and I was wondering if anyone could help me either source parts or fix it. The pen still writes, but I would like to find out more information on how I could fix this. The feed is completely screwed into the section and nothing leaks. I've tried to look up replacement parts, but my google-fu seems to be lacking.

 

The nib is fine, but the feed has a ridge that seems to have broken off with use, causing the nib to wiggle when seated. Gif for demonstration:

Here is an album of close-up images of where the feed meets the section: http://imgur.com/a/rjNUo

I am not experienced at pen repairs, but I received a Passaporto last year, and had difficulty with the feed (which has since improved).  Anyway, at the time, I found a website that sold spare nibs and some other Stipula parts, as well as pens.  I did email them about the nibs, and they answered by question promptly (in English).  Perhaps they could help you:  http://www.giardino....ambistipula.php

 

Good luck, and please share any information you receive.  I haven't found a lot of information about this pen.
