Hi all, I'm debating about either getting a new pen from The Nibsmith, or having one of my existing pens worked on by him.
Which would you suggest?
Thanks,

If you've used your pens with joy until now, this means they don't need a work/rework. So get a new pen.

OTOH if the pen holds some personal attachment for you, eg, first pen, pen from relative, gift, etc then go for the repair.

Also consider the cost of a new pen vs the cost of a repair.

Also consider the attachment you have to the wrt how it feels when you write with it, how it writes, etc
