Wow didn't know you reviewed Fountain Pens too. Well just as your Ink reviews you do it utmost thoroughly....
excellent review and axcellent photography
Das leben ist wie ein Perpetuum Mobile mit ein Mangel..... Immer im Bewegung jedoch nicht unendlich. (life is like a troubled Perpetuum Mobile ever moving but not for ever)
Tricked throughout the centuries...
For centuries people had been tricked by kings & "religion-alism"
In the 20th century people got tricked by communism
Today people get tricked by (neo)capitalism

Due to rarity of that pen I think it would be cool to show some pics from my little workshop:
Nib unit is screw in type and looks similar to Pelikan ones
Section is glued to the barrel
It's possible to do this but it's not important.
Screw in type piston unit. It looks exactly the same as Pelikan...
Snakewood part is glued to the barrel, metal ring is friction fit.
Oh thank you for showing the complete disassembly

Then, assuming that paying almost a full price (which is something like 695 or 795 EUR) you bought it in an official retail store, you undoubtedly have a right to have the nib section tuned/ replaced. If the seller fails, go directly through your local GvFC representative, or even the company headquarters. They care
Well, after taking it to the seller four times and complaining also that it was a noisy pen, he got mad at me and undid the sale. So now there is no problem to me. It was €600, by the way. I think it was a good price. I liked the pen, the feel of it, but I disliked that it stopped writing after a few pages. I might try another Faber Kastell some time...
Thanks for your help.
A man, an idea, a pen.

Very surprising. Someone may claim the impact of "southern temper", but my experiences with buying and returning "pens with issues" in Barcelona are very positive.
Apart from the unprofessional behaviour of the seller, it may be an indication, that they have little support from the local GvFC representative, which would be surprising too.
It may be worth to have a look at my classifieds
