  1. Got this pen at an estate sale. Cannot identify the manufacturer but it needs a new nib section. See photos attached. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. I have a Waterman Edson fountain pen with a broad nib. It is a beautiful pen. Unfortunately, I discovered that the nib "creeps", when the pen is held vertically. The leakage can be substantial if I ink the pen and hold it in a vertical position; ink would slowly gather at the tip of the nib, and even form a tiny droplet and fall from it. If I slightly tilt the pen to its normal writing position, this problem is alleviated. However, the nib would then become excessively wet when inked up freshly and used for normal writing. Also, I noted that when I use a converter to ink up the pen, as I turn the knob of the converter, the ink is not being drawn up as it is supposed to. Thus, I cannot fill the ink up to the converter's full capacity, but can only fill to less than one third of the converter's visible capacity. In addition, neither carriage nor the regular Waterman converter from my Carene would fit into this pen. They would not stay in position snugly, and would invariably fall off once pressure from hand is removed. After some research and thanks to the patient help from another FPN member in Canada, I think I may have pin-pointed the problem that the lance in the nib section is broken (it's not broken entirely, but is damaged laterally, either because of corrosion or force). In any event, it is currently not usable. Now there seem to be two solutions to this problem. The first is to find the right part and fix it myself or have some expert fix it. The second is to purchase a new nib section for replacement, and throw this one away (which seems a waste as the rest of the nib section seems alright). Any suggestions for either solutions, or alternative solutions that I have not thought of are greatly appreciated. I really would like to start using this pen instead of just putting it away to gather dust. Such a pity that right now I can only look at it lying on the table, not fulfilling its purpose as a true Edson.

    In Search For A Blue Pfm V Nib Section

    Hi Guys, I have been usin my grandfather's PVM V for the last 7 years and it has always been a trusted pen. Unfortunately, a few days ago I dropped it and it became scratchy, while trying to fix it, I broke one of the tines. Do any of you have a Blue nib section which you would be willing to part with ans ship to India. This pen is a legacy for me and I wish to continue using it... help would be much appriciated.
