I have damaged the nib on my M800. I believe I remember that the nib section can be replaced by just "unscrewing" the old one and replacing it with a new one. Is this correct? And if so, where does one buy a new nib unit for this pen, and how much would it cost? Thanks. ---- C. S.

Sorry to hear that. The nib unit can be unscrewed out of the section. Try that first on your damaged nib unit for practice.
The replacements are available from lots of sources. I prefer Regina Martini(Martinipens) or sometimes Rolf Thiel (missingpen).

The nib unit can be unscrewed and replaced by another easily.
Did you break the nib or just bend it? If it's just bent, it can be straightened and should not be very expensive.
depending how it broke, you can also have it repaired.
For a new nib check ebay, I believe there is a seller there with a few to sell.
Check out "Pena Lusa by Piscov". Pens added on a regular basis!

Lots of nibmeisters to send it to that will save you a ton of bucks compared to buying a new nib. I recently sent a 90 degree bent Pelikan nib (shipping disaster) to Greg Minuskin and it came back good as or even better than new... most pleased for perhaps a third of the cost of new.

The cheapest I have seen is $177 at Cult Pens. I really think you should send pictures to a nibmeister who maybe able to fix it for much less. If you are thinking about a different width nib maybe buy a replacement in the new width to use while you get the other one fixed and then you can swap between them as wanted.

Yes it can be unscrewed and replaced with another one. I prefer buy one from ebay, luckily you will find some cheap one. Haven't heard about a fake M800 nib.

I've got a few nibs for sale. Well, I am selling about five pens but some people are interested in buying only the bodies. If you want to buy just the nib, I could split the pen in two and make two people happy.
