  1. Hi FPN, I'm considering a clip-less pen (a nakaya portable) at the moment and I'm quite worried about the pen rolling off the table or whatever else it is placed on. So I just wanted to ask about your personal experience in using pens without clips or roll-stops. Have you found that you have to always remain vigilant? I will be using the pens while out and about not just at home so it being placed on a not an entirely level desk will probably be inevitable. Things it will likely be left on: Desk, Notebook/Notepad - both on and in. So I guess I just want to know if you've found that it i
  2. My Tortoise 500NN arrived, and everything looks lovely, except that the clip seems to be a little out of alignment -- the clip ring is not flat against the cap, the end where it's attached to the clip is a little higher. I consulted google and it seems the cap can be disassembled relatively easily and the clip should be aligned with some care? (Thank you The Pelikan's Perch and sargetalon! ) I haven't inked the pen yet because I wasn't sure if that would be the only explanation or there might be some more insidious issue that would require repair work (in which case the pen would be on its way

    Kaweco Liliput Clip

    Hello everyone, I'd like to add a custom clip to my Kaweco Liliput. I was wondering if any of you might know the exact diameter of the cap? I believe that it is about 10mm, but I'm not sure about it. It seems like Kaweco might launch an official one in 2017.

    Old Retractable Pen

    Hi all, First in wanted to thank you for the great advice I found in this forum when I purchased my new Montblanc 146P. As I’m new here I not sure if this fits in this section of the forum but I’ll give it a try. Unfortunately the reason for the new pen was the broken clip on my old ball pen. I got this one form my grandfather many years ago and it did great service to me. I hope you can help me to identify the type of this Montblanc pen. It is a retractable pen which button was integrated in the clip. Thank you a lot Stefan

    Lamy Safari - Clips

    I saw some older (2010) posts about dismantling a LAMY Safar and Al-Star, not sure if the same or not. Has anything changed for the Safari's over the years? I'm not sure the years of mine and I don't want to damage them trying to dismantle with non-applicable instructions. Also, I see you can buy replacement caps and nibs etc from the LAMY site, but, what I am after is just the clip, in black. I have a black LAMY Safari, and a red one... looking to buy the Al-Star Copper/Orange next, and I'd like to switch all the clips to black. So... just curious - Clips easy to swap? - Can I buy j
  7. Hey all, Is it possible to repair a clip that has 'brassing' on it? Is it possible to get it plated in gold or anything? And; Can you remove micro-scratches from resin pen barrels and caps? Thanks, Tom.
  8. I received my Kaigelu 316 from Hong Kong earlier this week (seller: hq.market, AKA You Gain More!) It's a reasonably faithful knock-off of the Duofold, visually at least. A handsome pen (mine is the white with black veining), it's improperly balanced toward the back end, but not a deal-breaker. I inked it up with Diamine Sapphire and it wrote beautifully. I decided to take my lovely new counterfeit to work with me, and on my way out the door, clipped it to my pock... UH-OH. With this gentle action, the clip, retainer ring and cap came off the pen. No biggie, I'll just screw the top back on,
  9. Good afternoon (here) ladies and gentleman... Okay, so I sprang for this pen on the bay of evilness and I knew it didn't have a clip. To me this isn't a big deal as I'm hoping I will love this pen and use it daily. But, where does one get a clip or can one get a clip for a Waterman 3 and if so, can a complete moron, such as myself do the repair? The pen was cheap as it is (crudely) monogrammed. Any and all help from this illustrious brain trust is much appreciated!!!!!
  10. Hello everyone! I've just spent far too much money on a greeny-gold, red veined Swan snakeskin. The little chap doesn't have a clip. I don't suppose anyone's got a spare knocking about, or any idea where I might find one? Any help with a model number would be fantastic. My patience with the Swan lists wore out as an accident's made prolonged web-monging physical torture just now. The pen's not yet in my possession or I'd provide pics but it's a SF, maybe a minor (?) and it has a wide gold cap band and a gold lever. Lovely looking No. 1 nib. Thanks for any help! xx
  11. http://i.imgur.com/vB5vMrA.jpg As far as my Google skills reach I think I have a Waterman Expert II (old style). With a M nib. A bit on the heavy side but nice finnish and look. Spot the small logo on top of the cap (it was a gift). Well, the clip has broken a while ago. Are those replacable? I did not find them on the web and eBay. Also did some searching here on FPN but to no avail (yeah on other brands I found some topics). I think I see a philips screw inside the cap, right?

    Cap To Something, But No Pen.

    Okay... I have somehow acquired a flat top black Sheaffer pen cap, but I've never had the pen. Can anyone tell me what is supposed to sit under this cap, please? And, how difficult is finding a pen? The ball on the clip is flat. There is a slight hump on the clip. Flat top and a single gold band.

    Clip Pen Holder

    For father's day my wife kids got me a new portfolio from Etsy. I love the thing but the only "problem" with it is that it only has two sleeves for pens, and they're quite narrow sleeves. They're leather, so they'll eventually stretch, but until then I'm looking for some sort of not-too-expensive leather holder that I can clip on the outside to hold a couple of more pens. The closest I've seen has been the Midori pen clips but I don't know if those are really just designed for the thin'ish Midori leather. Does anyone have any suggestions, recommendations and/or guidance? As always, the group's

    Pilot Vanishing Point - Loose Clip!

    Dear all, I've got a small problem with my Pilot VP; the clip has developed several degrees of side to side play? I don't actually use the clip to, well, clip the pen to anything so I'm not too worried about that aspect of it, but because of the design of the pen you end up holding the clip and it's a little disconcerting if it wiggles whilst writing! Edit - I should add, I've had the pen for approximately 8 months from new Here's some pictures to illustrate the problem; one to the left... http://i.imgur.com/xbWeowj.jpg?1 ... and one to the right! http://i.imgur.com/pmzJ2Fq.jpg?2

    Leboeuf Repair Questions

    I have a LeBoeuf Unbreakable with a great #8 nib. The pen has been sitting in my collection for years and has never been restored. To my knowledge, all it needs is a good cleaning and new sac, although I would also like to tighten up the clip. So two questions for the experts: 1. Does anyone know whether the section is friction fit (in which case, I'll assume that it may have been shellacked) or is screwed on? I have tried gently nudging it both upwards and counterclockwise, but it didn't budge. 2. I would appreciate advice on how best to bend the clip closer to the cap without damag
  16. "Santa" was a little too hasty when he bought the clip for the new denim AL Sport he gave me for Christmas. He bought the clip for a Kaweco Special, not a Sport - and it's too small and won't fit a Sport. It's the retro-styled clip. Apparently Santa imported it from Japan and thus it's not worth trying to return. If anyone in the CONUS has a use for it, I will happily send it to you gratis. I doubt we'll ever need it, and I hate to just throw it away. Please PM if interested.
  17. Here is the clip I just acquired. It doesn't quite go with anything I have. Does anyone out there feel confident enough in their knowledge of vintage Parkers to make an educated guess? http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTYwMFgxNDU5/z/bLcAAOSwVFlUFl6Q/$_57.JPG Thanks!

    Parker 75 Clip Improvisation

    I was thinking to share my happiness with you This summer I bought a Parker 75 and a Parker 65 for a really low price. The seller stated that the pens are broken but I was optimistic. After an inspection they were in a really bad shape, the P65 had a destroyed section and the P75 was not writing at all only when applying a large amount of pressure, the clip was missing, the chrome clutch ring was rotten off, the clutch missing too, it had different tassies (flat at the cap, dished at barrel). It looked like this: I'm not a purist so i started to improvise to make it look reasonable
  19. Hey guys! Just wondering what the best looking pen you've ever seen is? Pictures would be great too! Thanks!
  20. I was unable to edit my other posting about this so I made this one. Basically I am in need of the clip shown in the image I have attached. This is the same exact cap as on my pen. I also need suggestions on where to go to have the cap returned to its original round shape as it was evidently slightly damaged somehow and is slightly out of round.
  21. the adoption of the clip to hook the pen to the waistcoat dates back to the the first decade of the century, the exemplars made before were not provided with it. From being a simple and useful accessory, with the passing of time the clip achieved an increasing importance, so that its shape distinguished one firm from the other. Is it yet useful?

    Noir Et Noir Nib/cap Alignment

    Good evening fellow fountain pen enthusiasts, Today I am posting my first on the FPN but I must say, being a silent member for over a year, I have really enjoyed reading the Montbanc posts and following the people who post more frequently. I got my first Montblanc two years ago when I was 18. It was the Montblanc 147 75th Passion and Soul edition with an EF nib and it is still in my rotation. Today I am writing to you all with a question about two of my Montblanc Noir et Noir Fountain Pens. I have to admit that at the time of purchase of my first Noir et Noir, I was under the assumption th

    Clip Repair

    Hello All, I'm very new to the world of fountain pens, and I just recenty got my first pen when my father found, and then gave me, his old Parker Maxima that he used in high school. The pen seems to be in good working order, but the clip is a bit loose. (Hopefully the photos illustrate this?) Does anybody have any suggestions about how to fix the clip in place? Glue seems like an obvious solution, but I'm not sure as to which one to use, etc. Many thanks!
