Recently I've ordered some F & LH nibs from my country's official Lamy store to customize some of my Safaris and AL-Stars. While changing the nibs, I've noticed that they are too tight fitting. When I wanted to remove one from my AL-Star with tape, whole feed detached from the pen. Fortunately the feed and the pen are fine but, I'm surprised to tightness of the new Lamy nibs.

 

Did anyone experienced the same phenomena? What if I want to return to old nibs of the pens some day? How can I remove these nibs?

 

The nibs write very good BTW. They are wet, smooth and firm like all Lamy nibs.

I have one Lamy, al Al-Star.. When the opportunity to change out the chrome nib with a black stainless presented itself, I watched a video. It was effortless to remove and replace.

Thanks everyone for their answers. Sorry, I possibly failed to convey the situation. I have a fleet of Lamy pens and I've changed the nibs numerous times. It's not a process I'm not familiar with.

 

The thing is, when I apply the tape trick to the new nibs I have, the section comes out, not the nib. It's that tight fitting.

 

This is why I wanted to ask whether anyone got that tight fitting nibs.
