    Completely Bent Clip

    Dear All, Although I have many fine pens, I tend to not take them with me on a daily basis (I used to bring around a MB 146 for a week and it got scratched up so badly I felt really bad), so I bought a Nitecore NTP10 Tactical Pen as a backup pen to always have on me. This pen uses Fisher Refills, which make it really practical, and I keep it inside my pocket and this thing is so solid it never scratches (but ends up scratching other things). However, one day it got caught on something and the clip bent outwards completely. I tried bending it back, but no matter how much I bend it, it won't be past the flat angle and I have no idea how to remove the clip. Any ideas on how to unbend this clip? I believe it is made of Titanium, but I am unsure. Many thanks in advance.
  2. Hello all, I'm relatively new to fountain pens and have been browsing the forums for some time. I recently acquired a Visconti Homo Sapiens Crystals which at first look appeared in perfect condition. However, when looking closer, it appears as though one of the tines is slightly bent. The pen seems to have no problem writing smoothly, but if there is indeed a defect with the nib, I would prefer to have it fixed (especially while still under warranty), rather than let it go. Could anyone chime in to let me know whether it appears as though the nib needs work, or if this is just me being paranoid? Thank you all for your help, - Andrew

    Newbie At Nibs

    I hate to sound stupid......but I also believe that the only way to learn is to ask I have a bunch of 'job lot' pens - bought with the idea of learning a little restoration and so on. One has what I thought was a bent nib.....and then I saw this: http://www.nibs.com/SailorSpecialtyNibs.htm Please enlighten me....I had no idea that nibs such as this are available, useable, and not, as I thought, just bent. Of course mine may well be just bent, but in any case, id be very grateful for any insights. Thanks Alex

    Tines Bent Too Wide

    Alas, it had to have happened sometime. I bought a Pilot Urban and have had it for a little while and, of course, I love it. But today, in a lack of attention, I went to replace the cap and thrusted the pen downwards too quickly and at an odd angle. Needless to say, there was a gasp, several moments of shock, and about an hour of frantic attempts at repair. Fortunately, most of the haphazard destruction I have managed to revert, but now the tines are a bit too distant from one another, and pressing the back on something solid just doesn't seem to working. Assistance, please? Edit: I've added some photos that are less-than-perfect, but the damage is visible with a bit of eye-hole persistence.

    400 Nib Bent

    I have a Pelikan 400 tortoise from the early 1950s. I posted a review here Now that I have a bit more experience looking at nibs under magnification, I've discovered the tines on this extra fine nib were out of alignment and the entire tip of the nib itself is crooked and a bit twisted. I was able to align the tines but the nib is still twisted. Fixing only the alignment leaves the nib very scratchy. Ink flow is very good and I think just as it should be for an EF and even keeps up when I add pressure to my writing to get line variation.It's so scratchy though that I want to get someone to fix it for me. Not sure what my options are; any recommendations?
