Hi,

 

I am new on this forum and a newbie in fountain pens. I recently found a pen in some old stuff. The nib is bent which make writing difficult. I'd like to replace it but I even don't know which brand of pen/nib it is. 

 

Can someone help me please? I've attached 2 photos.

 

Thanks,

 

MataMax

Can't read what it says on the nib.

Perhaps there is a marking on the clip.

A bit shaper picture of the end of the cap could help....in I can't ID it off the top of my head.

 

Don't know if the feed should be so bent or not.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

. . .

The nib seems to be imprinted "IRIDIUM POINT W-GERMANY" although I'm not positive about the "W-".  The logo on the cap is a palm tree.

 

The feeder is the same for ROTRING f.pens ..Calligraphy line...maybe your pen was made in germany…

 

The apparent "W Germany" on the nib makes it seem likelier that it, at least, was actually made in Germany.

 

Regarding the feed -- I wonder whether its made to come apart like that, or whether it's broken. Also, I can't see a bend in the nib, but the tip of the feed certainly does seem bent.  If that's the problem, it can be straightened.

 

Sorry I don't recognize the make of pen.

The palm tree on the cap is probably a company logo.

Thank you for your replies. Some additional info :

  • on the clip there is a marking : GERMANY
  • on the nib : IRIDIUM POINT W-GERMANY
  • photo with pen mounted

Do you think this is repairable? If not, how to know what to order as a replacement nib/feed?

 

Thanks again folks !

I'm sure it's repairable, but don't know if it can be done at home.

Check the repair section.

 

Depends on what country you are in, to find out to whom to send it.

I don't know stateside folks, only Fountainble in Belgium.
