    Omas Ogiva Cap Repair

    Hello Everyone, So Before Omas went out of business, I was able to get my hands on a Omas Ogiva Cocktail Lemon Vodka. It was my grail pen at the time and ever since it arrived it has had one problem after another. The piston seal kept leaking and I was forced to replace it myself and that has partially solved the problem (ink still gets behind the seal on occasion). However, the biggest issue happened when the pen leaked from the nib while it was capped. I did not notice it while it was inside my carrying pouch and the ink completely flooded inside the cap. It was probably sitting like that for about a week while I was at school and when I finally did notice what has happened, the ink completely destroyed the inner cap seal (the clear plastic part inside the cap). The inner cap seal was practically eaten away by the ink (MontBlanc corn poppy red) and no longer kept the air from coming in from the hole in the cap where the clip is inserted. Not only did it not hold the air seal, but it was also permanently stained blood red like a crime scene and being a almost completely clear yellow pen it did not look pretty. So after attempting to clean it for days with no success I was forced to remove it. All this happened last July and ever since the pen keeps drying out and I cannot find anyone able to a fix it or sell a replacement part. I have checked all over the web with Mr. Mottishaw of Nibs.com, Tom Weserich of penboard.de and of course ebay with no success. The pen is basically unusable and I don’t know what to do. I cannot insert the part back because it shriveled up and no longer creates an air tight seal and does not fit back into the pen. If anyone has any extra seals they are willing to part with or sell or just any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I attached an image of the part that I'm looking for here if anyone is confused about what I'm talking about. Thank You, Alex
