Hi, I have Gold Filled Wahl. I got this vintage pen and tried to disassemble it, but the section doesn't come off. I tried soaking in warm water and heating the section before trying to pull it, however, none of that worked. How do I disassemble this all metal pen? Is it harder to disassemble a fountain pen with metal sections?

I have a very similar pen and mine does pull apart to get to the sac exactly where yours is showing signs of weakness just below the thread.

I just wiggled it left and right and eventually out it came.

 

If you're scared, get hold of someone who knows to help. Shame to trash a pen for the sake of a few pounds.

 

Best of luck.  :)
