  1. Thought I would post my DIY home nib grind I did on my newly purchased Montblanc 149. I bought the pen on auction for a great price ($300 USD). It was a new old stock (W. Germany made so from 80s-early 90's) never used and in great condition. The nib was a fine & ran VERY dry. I wanted something unique and fun with this pen as I have (too) many fine nib pens. I fixed the flow issues first to get it to write wetter (not too wet as I have some of those too), but it was still just a plain fine nib and was a bit scratchy. I smoothed it to be nice and smooth every which way, but again
  2. I've gotten a few more pens done and am working on a couple different custom orders, but thats not the good news. I have been trying to figure out this whole nib grinding thing for the past couple years. The past 3 or 4 months I've really cranked up my experimenting and (hopefully) learning. I am ready to offer a grind.... A grind. I feel pretty confident that I can do a cursive italic grind. I know I'm leaving out architect and left and right oblique and crisp italic... but baby steps are better than none at all. With all that being said here is my free offer. I am willing to offer a cu
  3. I am aware of the people online who will tune a nib, but I am kinda impatient and don't want to wait a month to get my pen back. I live close to the border of NY and Massachusetts so a drive to Boston would be about the same length as a drive to NYC.
  4. I've got Moore's Maniflex nib with lost tipping on one of the tines. I could grind the nib into italic. But I wonder what other DIY alternatives to grinding are possible. I think of folding or clamping by the sides the tip to form it similar to ones on the early cheap nibs without tipping material (like some Esterbrook's, rolatip and 3d tiers). Or bend it to make kind of fude nib. I couldn't find the information about it. Does anybody tried to do it and was successful?

    Grinding A Broken Parker Falcon Nib

    So, I was in a meeting yesterday, and wanted to annotate my notes. I have my trusty Parker Falcon loaded with Skrip Red, and it was dry. I checked the reservoir, no probs, and upside down the nib worked. After the meeting I had a look through the loupe and saw that the tines were spread a bit, and the tip was dry. I gently pressed the tines down and together to bring them closer. Suddenly there was a ping and a rattle somewhere on my desk, and the pen is as you see it. It seems the welding on half the tip was fatigued and failed cleanly at the ball. Ah, well I could invest in a new tipping
