FPN appearing slow

Dearest Member or Visitor of the little Fountain Pen Nut house on the digital prairie,

Due to a continuing DDoS attack, FPN could be moving only slowly. Hosting Support is dealing with this. The earlier reported hardware issue has been fixed. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Warm regards, the FPN Moderator & Admin Team

Metal TWISBI. Spanner works on a Pelikan M800 & 1000. Not on Montblanc.


It also works well on loosening the end cap on an 823. I’ve also found that TWABI grease is well suited on pens that I’m unable to take apart.

Good point. The TWISBI silicone is much thinner than the standard thick stuff you get from most pen shops. There are those times when something light and thin like this is just what is called for. I like having the option. It’s good stuff to have around.
