Recently got this and a Duofold from a colleague. The nib is in excellent condition and writes quite well, but the internal sac has crumbled to dust. Would it be possible to buy a new sac for this in India? If not, what are my sources online for buying parts for this? I think this is a Sheaffer Triumph but I might be wrong and more information on the pen is always welcome.

Consider to use silicone sacs instead of latex, so that they will be much more durable.

You can find them at the link suggested here above-

While silicone sacs have some advantages, do keep in mind that silicone sacs can cause the pen to ooze if the pen is not stored nib up.  They're not for everyone.  Take at look at this article.....
