I received a Noodler's Konrad about a week ago.  I love the pen, but I noticed today that some of the finish/plating on the clip had come off.  It likely came this way, as the pen hasn't been anywhere but on top of my desk since I got it (haven't carried it anywhere, hasn't been in a bag or pocket, hasn't been dropped, etc.).  Has anyone else experienced this?  Can you get a replacement clip for a Noodler's pen?

At the price point of these pens, it's not the end of the world, and doesn't affect the function of the pen, but it's still a little annoying.

I don't think Wolverine had to be so harsh, but I have to say I agree. This isn't something worth losing sleep over, Unfortunately the human mind often latches onto things, so it might take some time for you to move on from this, but believe me, you will.

Let me clarify.  I'm not losing sleep over a fountain pen pocket clip.  It isn't weighing on my mind all day.  I happened to notice it, snapped a pic and figured I'd ask if anyone else had seen the same thing.  It hasn't stopped me from using or enjoying the pen (I do enjoy it, quite a lot actually).  I understand that it's a relatively inexpensive pen, but I don't think that bars it from discussion here.

 

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go start a thread about how I don't like the way this pen smells. 

 

 

 

(That's a joke.  I'm not going to do that.  I can just comment in one of the dozens of other Noodler's-pen-odor threads.)  ;)

I'm with wolverine 1, btb. It's nice that you've got something that you can actually write with (and this is more than I've ever got out of Noodlers), but expecting the cosmetics to work as well is asking for the moon on a stick.

Thankfully, Noodler's response wasn't, "You bought a cheap pen, get over it."  I contacted them through their website asking if it would be possible to get a replacement clip, and they're sending one free of charge.  Obviously not everyone thinks highly of their product, but their customer service gets an A+ in my book.

I think Noodler's pens are neat, especially their nibs. If only they didn't smell :/

Oddly enough, I've grown to love that smell.

I can't decide if the smell has started to dissipate, or if I've just gotten used to it.

Maybe them replacing the clip for you has made the pen smell a bit more fragrant?
