My older Nakaya & Platinum pens have friction-fit nibs and feeds that make it very easy to clean the pens, and to exchange nibs between pens. 

 

This year I picked up a new Nakaya Piccolo and a Platinum 3776 "Shungyo". Both of the nibs are very securely fitted, and seem difficult to remove.

 

Can anyone advise, please, if it's possible to remove the newer nib and feed assemblies without using excessive force? Any help or advice will be appreciated  :)

be careful.  one of mine, a nakaya, so difficult to remove the nib.  but i forced it anyway, since i wanted to do a thorough cleaning.  when i put it back, it wouldn't align properly.  the nib now slightly raised from the feed.  and so it won't start properly.  now it seems i have no choice but to have it professionally fixed.  i may need to send it back to nakaya.

Sorry to hear about your problems. The older nib and feed sets align themselves very well with no effort, so there must have been significant changes to cause the difficulty you've experienced.

 

Thanks for replying, and I hope you get your pen repaired  :)
