Hello, forum members.

I have a Sheaffer Intensity Carbon Ferrari broad nib (FE0950863). I do not like its pocket clip and want to remove it. I had tried looking the inside of the cap but I could not see the screw for the clip.

I have not seen any instruction of how to disassemble it. Could you please tell me how to remove the clip safely?

Thank you.

I will admit that I haven't had to take one of these apart.  But I can tell you based on all of the Sheaffers that I've worked on, that they frequently use a plastic inner cap to keep the nib from drying out.  This would cover any holes that would let air in, along with whatever is holding the clip in place. 

 

There is a good chance that you can't remove the clip.   While some clips can be removed, modern manufacturers also like to  use a rivet, or bend tabs over to hold a clip in the cap instead of a removable screw.  ...or they use a screw with a small torx head which means (for  you) a special tool to take the screw out.
