    Nib Exchange Turn Around Time?

    Hi, Dropped two pens off in London for a nib exchange. Anyone know the timeframe i can expect to get the pens back? Have been told anywhere from 2-6 weeks and hoping it's not the latter! Boutiques seem very quiet these days due to Covid. Many thanks

    Caran D'ache Nib Exchange

    I bought a Caran d’Ache Varius Ebony fountain pen in January 2020. I chose an OB nib to bring some variety to my expanding collection (6 fountain pens and 3 ballpoints). However, the OB nib was not what I expected and I hardly ever used the pen. I therefore decided to do something about it, which means either to have the nib reground or exchanged. First things first, I contacted Caran d’Ache customer service for a nib exchange. I received their answer today. I can send the pen to the factory where the nib will be inspected. If it is found to be in good condition, it will be exchanged free of

    149 Repair Woes

    I've been having some issues with my 90th Anniversary Edition 149 & my journey to get it repaired. I purchased my pen new from one of the Authorized Dealers in St. Maarten in January this year while I was on a cruise. As soon as I got home, I inked it up with some UNICEF Blue and all was good until it started leaking onto the grip section a couple of months later. I also didn't like how the medium nib wrote so I asked to exchange the nib for an OBBB when I sent it out in March. Since I sent it in, I've had an "interesting" experience with MontBlanc's repair center. I was told that the
  4. I have a question for the nib-tinkerers amongst us: can one fit a Bock Type 380 (i.e. a Bock #8 size) nib onto a Pelikan M1000, and/or vice-versa? If so, does one exchange just the nib, or both the nib and feed? Why am I asking? I found a Pelikan M1000 quite very cheaply some time ago. Alas, although the beautiful 3OB nib looks perfectly OK, it is very temperamental in practice (much more so than other obliques I’ve used). So I want to find an alternative. I know I could buy a whole new M1000 nib, but that would cost several times more than I paid for the pen. So I was wondering whether I co
  5. Hi everybody, I’ve recently opened a Izumo which carries a rhodium president nib that was bought quite a while ago. So warranty, if there’s any, could have expired. On second thought, I’d like to go on the thicker side of lines and would like to have the nib changed to Broad. Does Platinum offer a nib exchange programme as its western counterparts or if it is not free, does Platinum allow doing it with a cost? I’ve tried searching the forum but didn’t seem to find any previous discussion on this. Does that mean a no? Does anybody have any experience that could be shared? Many thanks!
  6. Hi guys, So I'm the newbie Pelikan owner who bought a Souveran M600 with an M nib from Amazon Global UK because the price was great and everyone in this forum raved about how awesome the M600 is (I'm coming over from being a Montblanc owner, be nice). Problem is this: my handwriting is small and the M nib is waaaaay too wet even using Pelikan's 4001 royal blue and Montblanc's midnight blue ink. So I reached out to Chartpak to do a nib exchange and lo and behold, they're not going to honor a nib exchange on a pen purchased outside of the US, which makes me wonder what they do about American
  7. Thought it might be of interest to post my recent (and first) nib exchange experience. Naturally it will be old news to the more seasoned forum members, but I know I've scoured the boards looking for info on it and always left wondering what the latest is on available nib sizes and so forth. Thus, fwiw: Short Version. It works, it takes a little over two weeks, the currently available nib sizes chart for the whole range is just below. Long Version. Very long version. Aug. 2nd - Took delivery of a Parker Duofold "Classic" International Big Red with medium nib at a ridiculously low price.

    Exchanging Writer's Edition Pens

    I have been a longtime lurker since last August, when I started using fountain pens, and reading articles here and other's posts have been enough to help me solve a lot of the problems that I've encountered. But now I have a problem that I have found some information on but it is contradicting other posts so I want to ask others from this community for the most up to date information and advice. I have discovered Montblanc's Writer's Edition recently and immediately got hooked. My first purchase was a Dumas with a medium nib, but after inking it up and filling around 10 pages, I've conclud

    Parker Nib Exchange

    Every Vector I have bought over many years has had a medium nib, so I bought a new Vector with the plan to send it in to have the nib swapped to a fine. I sent it to Parker on 10 Jan 2017, and got it back on the 30 Jan. Am very pleased with it, it writes how I had hoped for. The nib had been tested as there was blue ink in the feed, plus a surprise was the fitting of a slide converter, marked 'Made in UK'. It's the type of converter where the agitator inside is not a ball bearing but a steel tube type. (I could post a photo if asked.) Also included one new Quink cartridge.

    Lamy Service Turnaround Time

    Hey guys, Anyone know what their average wait time was for getting a nib exchanged at the Lamy repair centre in Heidelberg? I sent my Lamy 2000 from the UK (f) in September and got a confirmation email to say it was delivered around the 28th September. It's now towards the end of October but have not had anything in the post yet or an email to say it's on it's way. Is this a usual amount of time to wait for Lamy Germany to send a pen back for a nib exchange only? And what were your experiences with their customer service? The initial interaction I had was pleasant enough but I was just won

    Back From Germany!

    Bought this from the MB Boutique, but they had to send it off to Germany for a nib exchange; I like Fine nibs. Just got it back recently. Duke of Milan 4810. Any votes for which ink I should use in it for its first trial?

    Delta Fp Nib Exchange In Eu : Help

    Dear all, I bought a bunch of Deltas recently and I am wondering if any of you have experience in getting the nib exchanged in Europe. I have filled up the web form of Deltapen.it several times without ANY responce. The pinned topic here <https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/54397-italian-brands-contact-info/> doesn't have the info I need either. I did search in this forum and the web in general but couldn't come up with a decent answer -> Help. Thanks in advance -DOL
  13. Hi, I've come into possession of an Astoria Nib No.2. Disregarding the fact that the feed might not be able to handle the ink requirements of the flexible nib, would it be possible to mount this nib on any Pelikan M Feed or any Sailor 1911? Thank you very much!
  14. Customer support and after sales service - the way it should be There are companies who make promises and there are companies who keep it; encountering the latter came as a pleasant surprise, not only did they keep the original promise, but went far beyond their remit to keep an end customer happy. The story goes thus. I land at my dad's after a couple of years [we live half way across the world] and during a nice balmy drink he jumps and says 'Son, I was meaning to give you something last time you were here, but forgot, let me go fetch it'; before I gulp the drink and pop the question as to
  15. I just changed the nib on my Parker Sonnet from a medium to a fine. I watched a video http://www.penbox.tv/Pens/Parker/16613428_S4gptd/1252557369_BJbBN7n#!i=1252557369&k=BJbBN7n and then made the exchange. Easy!! I was as thrilled as I was the other night when I had my first loaner hand in Euchre. Woohoo!!
