After seeing a Jinhao x750 after being sanded down, I got curious. Recently, I sanded down a Parker Urban (2016 model) after the pocket clip broke off. I would like to dedicate this thread to the fountain pens that have had their finish removed. Please post pictures of your pens that have been sanded down or have had their finished scratched to oblivion. I'll start with my Parker Urban. Please post the pictures and the name of the pen.
Hi I am very much an amateur repairer so I apologise for the naivety of my question (and also if this question has been asked before). I have a Parker Maxima which is generally in pretty good condition. Its only issue is that where the cap has been slid on to the body it has caused the body finish to become matt - no gouges or individual scratches, it has just lost its shiny finish. I don't want to make matters any worse that they are, so with which grade of abrasive paper should I begin? Thanks Andrew
