Hallo,

 

I own some Eversharp Dorics, few with Gold Seal nibs.

In one of them the nib has a horizontal crack in the heart hole aeria. The replacement nib I bought on a stock exchange no longer has a good Iridium writing grain.

Since my pens should be ready for writing, I am looking for a Gold Seal nib in good condition.

Hansjürgen

 

Something to look at, which delights the heart:

Hello Hansjürgen,

 

I do not know where you can find another nib; however, I strongly suggest you isolate the red Doric. Keep it away from these and any other pens. It appears to have the Doric Disease.

You are right. It's repaired an the experts are not afraid that gases will cause infection.

 

According to a friend (plastic chemist), we do not know what causes the destruction. This light red-brown Doric is the only one showing this degeneration. All other opaques are stable.

 

Thank you for your concern

 

Hansjürgen

Hallo Fred,

 

Thank you for this supplementary information.

I am still checking whether and at what price a repair is possible in Germany.

Postage and taxes make the nibs very expensive for me.

Hansjurgen:

 

For your consideration try contacting Pablo and Esther at Fountain Pen Nibs re welding  of your cracked Wahl-Eversharp nib.

Thank you, Fred,

 

I've found a german expert to do the nib repair - hopefully to get a useable nib again.

Hallo Fred,

 

do you know a book about Wahl-Eversharp like the book from Davis / Lehrer about Waterman?

Thank you Fred for your hints.

 

I will gladly examine them and try to get an insight - and perhaps report here.
