Hi all, many years ago I gifted my father with a Caran d'Ache Ecridor, which he's probably never correctly cleaned. As expected, he's been experiencing many problems with the ink flow. He's now tasked me with fixing all his flow troubles. Anyway, I'd like to remove the nib (if possible) and thoroughly clean his pen but I've been unable to find any information regarding the removal of an Ecridor nib. Does anyone out there know how the nib is held in the feed? Is this a single unit that Caran d'Ache wants customers to replace as opposed to fix? If there are any workarounds I'd be very grateful
I recently received a Caran d'Ache Ecridor in guilloché. It's a beautiful pen, but unfortunately I had to send it in for maintenance due to a feed issue. I was always under the impression that these pens were palladium coated. However, the owner of the shop I brought it to seemed to suggest it was silver plated, as was written in his catalog. One of the reviews on FPN mentions it's silver plated and palladium coated, and a second look at the Caran d'Ache website lists various models in different plating. Does anyone know what metal is on the Ecridor?
