Sorry, I know this has come up a few times. Looking for someone in the UK who could repair make work my Visconti Rembrandt.


(I've posted about it elsewhere, but never been happy with it. I think it has one tine longer than the other so needs a bit of grinding and probably work on the feed / feed replacement. Tempted to get it ground to a stub as well.)


I've seen mention of Oxonian aka John Sorowka but can't find him searching FPN members. Also saw mention of PenPractice.com but doesn't seem to cater for repair or modern pens.


Any tips?

Maybe you can visit the London Pen Show?

Dutch based Anabelle will attend:

I certainly hope to see John Sorowka at the London Pen Show (6th October) - I have a job for him!

Hope you got sorted out, John and Annabelle, looked to be busy all day. The show had an excellent turn out, I had a ball, meeting again all the people, not UK based.

Thanks all for your help, much appreciated.

Anyway, thank's for the PMs, I'll see what I can sort.

Aha - I've just come across the name of John Sorowka as a UK-based nib meister, as I have a Lamy I'd like tinkered with by someone who knows what they're doing.  I didn't know if such things can be done via the post, or if one has to be with the nibmeister in person.  Any tips of accessing such skills would be much appreciated.  Many thanks  Gerry
