Hi, I have a question for Esterbrook experts.

 

Q. Is it okay to change the nib on an Esterbrook J while the pen is still inked?

Yes, just hold the pen in an upright position. If you don't want ink on your fingers, use paper towel to unscrew the nib. I have been able to achieve it.

I have successfully used this method also.

Me 3 I am sure - at least once. I usually do it when I am either filling or changing ink though.
