Recently saw this nice Snorkel signature set and almost passed it up, until I saw that it has a factory stub nib. Had to get it. The problem: my wife and I are moving overseas in like a week. No time to mail and have a new sac put in, even with rush delivery...right?

 

So, if there's someone around Louisville, KY who can do this, who would be willing to let me drop it off to them and pick it up, I'd be deeply in your debt. 

 

Thanks folks!

Hope you find someone.  

I have a black Snorkel with a Palladium Silver stub that has a bit of flex to it.  Yours looks like it probably will (being gold) have more....  :puddle: 

Sorry I have no recommendations for someone super close to where you are.  Mine have all been rehabbed by Martin Ferguson at pen shows, and he's in Virginia someplace.  Check out his website and see what sort of turnaround time he's currently running: http://martinspens51.com.

Fyi, flexy Snorkel nibs won't have that little "groove" where the gold tone meets the silver tone. So this one's gonna be firm
