In the last few months, I have purchased: Aurora 88P, black (1950s) Aurora 98, black (1960s?) Aurora Duo Cart, green (modern) Aurora Optima Auroloide, Rossa (modern) Montegrappa Zero Chrysocolla Pen Venture Exclusive (limited edition of 30) Leonardo Momento Zero, Blue Hawaii (2021) And, I just placed an order for a Momento Zero Coral from Pen Venture, as that color is not as easy to find as it used to be - and I have wanted it for awhile. I didn't expect this of myself. Apart from Leonardos, I have always kind of looked the other way on most modern Italian pens, pretty as they are. All the Visconti horror stories, I guess. But at this point, I am even considering giving a Van Gogh a shot, as long as I order from somewhere that will tune it first.
I am trying to swap out my Leonardo Momento Zero Nib. The replacement nib I bought from the same seller is a complete collar + feed + nib unit in one. It is clearly screw type from the thread. I have tried like hell to screw it out but it seems stuck. I also very gently tried tugging as my Grande had the tug type, but I know the Leonardo Reg Momento Zero’s newer ones are screw in ( reinforced by fact that the replacement t I bought is also screw in) . Mine is the Positano with the number 1296 so may well be an older ‘ tug’ type. a) would anyone know how to unscrew a stuck nib? anyway to tell if my particular pen has screw in or friction. Would be good to know before I applied force pulling. c) any other suggestions. many thanks in advance
