I'm new to the forum.  I recently came across an old Mont Blanc my father had and when I tried to take the cap off, the screw part broke off.  By screw part I mean the nib section that you screw on and off the body when changing cartridges or ink via a converter.  I took some pics and was wondering if anyone here could tell me if it can be repaired or if I've permanently damaged the pen.. :unsure:

Pretty much broken. However I'm pretty sure you could return it to MontBlanc and they would replace the body.

Welcome to FPN.


Common fault on this model. As stated, Montblanc can service it and replace the parts (at service cost), or you may be able to pick up a cheap 'parts pen' and replace it yourself?


Good luck.

Thank you both for your responses!  Unfortunately, I don't know much about fixing pens so I've sent it to MontBlanc for an estimate.  Waiting to hear what they say...
