Shame, another one bites the dust.
Was the Mini an EDC/extensively used?
Nope, I used it a few times and then it sat in a pen pot where it was mostly ignored for the last couple of years. (Because I'd made a hash of the nib trying to sharpen it - it was a 1.1mm italic, and I wanted a crisper edge. I sharpen my italic dip nibs with an Arkansas stone, but when I did the same to this nib it came out too sharp and unpleasant to use.)
It's a shame because I like the size and feel of the pen, but I don't want to buy a replacement because I can't trust it'll stay in one piece for long enough to warrant the cost.
