Long story short.
My wife gave me at Med. Nib Platinum StarWalker as a morning present at our wedding about 2 and a half years ago. And... I never use it. The Med. Nib is faaar to wide for me - which is a shame.
Only finding out about the 6 weeks nib exchange recently - i got quite upset - and asked my wife, who knows I don't like nor use the pen because of the nib size, if the Sales assistent informed her about the Nib enchange. She said no.
I emailed Customer service explaining the situation and aksing if I could exchange it. I got a flat out "We are very sorry you are unhappy with our product - but no chance of exchange".
I was a little surprised. So I email back saying this, stating that my wife and I have probably spent 10,000 USD in various Mont Blanc products over the last 3-4 years, asking if they could help me make a sentimental item usable in everyday life.
The answer back was, directly translated. "I am sorry that you are not happy with us not replacing a nib after a few years for free use".
So. There we are. Technically i know that I have no claim on a replacement - but the nib has hardly been used, and we were not informed about the exchange program at the time of purchase, so I feel that some wiggle room could be applied.
Rather then spending quite a lot for money for a replacement nib, i now have to investigate how to make the nib i have usable. Not knowing a lot about fountain pens, i have heard that one can grind a larger nib down to smaller sizes.
Could someone please point me in a direction of someone who could help me with this?
I would think waiting on the Classified for someone to sell a Plat. SW Fine/EF nib would perhaps leave me wating for a long time.
Thanks for your help
