  1. Hi, all, I'm new to this site, having lurked for years...not finding a way to search the forum archives, so forgive my starting a new thread on a topic likely answered before. I have 3 Namiki Vanishing Point nibs, tines in varying degrees of bent-ness, all victims of my ceramic tile floor (and my clumsy fingers). Pilot informs me that they do not repair bent nibs, and cannot refer me. New nibs are $70. So: whom would you recommend for reputable, cost-effective repair? Thanks in advance!

    14K Parker 51 Nib Repair

    Hello members, I already made a similar post about this in the Parker forum and realized I should have put it here. I hope I'm not breaking protocol by making another post but this time I'm asking for help specifically about the nib. As you can see from the pictures the tip of the nib is bent to the right and needs straightening and probably some work on the ball(?) of the tip. I've asked two people about repairing it and it seems that it would cost more than to just buy a new one, so I figure I might as well see if I could very carefully try to fix it myself (I can hear the groans of disapp

    Nibmeister In London?

    I'm looking for a nib meister in London who can have a look at my Lamy and Parker Sonnet nibs. I'm only going to be there for a couple of days so is there anybody who might be able to do a walk-in? I don't mind leaving the nibs with him but at least visiting him in person will save some time.
  4. A couple months ago I purchased a Pelikan M1005 demonstrator with a Medium nib, which has been a "grail" pen for me for quite a while. While it flowed like Niagara Falls at first, liberally spilling the stunning Akkerman Shocking Blue all over my Rhodia notebook's pages, somehow after removing the nib several times I must have pinched too hard or something because I completely lost ink flow. After fiddling for a while I could get it to flow while writing with the pen at a 90 degree angle. But nothing while writing normally. I've been frustrated with myself about this, but after scouring t
  5. My Sailor mini (daffodil) is one of my favorite pens, but I have damaged the tins on the nib. I write to John's office at Nibs.com, but missed his deadline before he left for his summer vacation. Can someone recommend other folks who do great work on Sailor's? I miss using it! Thanks

    Lamy 2000 Drop

    Can't get the pictures to post for some reason, but during a ill advised moment allowing someone to use my Lamy 2000, it was dropped. I pretty much never let anyone use my pens, but for some odd reason I said sure and let them write with it. Nib down onto tile from standing height, and the nib that was an "A" now looks a lot like an upside down "L" bent right over the feed. So, now I ask for a suggestion of whom I should ship it off to so that it can be repaired? I had been debating getting it ground to a cursive italic, so I will probably have that done at the same time. If it matters,

    Can These Phileas Nibs Be Repaired?

    As I mentioned on another thread, I dropped two Waterman Phileas pens onto the sidewalk. As RMN wryly observed: "Murphy's first law for fountain pen owners. The chance a pen drops nib down on concrete is proportional to it's value..." That was painfully true for me. I have checked with several of the best nibmeisters. None that I found would repair a steel nib (which the Phileas has, despite some gold plating). Nor do they do repair/replacements on the Phileas because the pen—and therefore the nibs—are no longer made. I know that the Kultur and Harley use similar barrels and tips, but I wou
  9. Hi everyone New here, and really enjoying looking at everyone's collections. I have four fountain pens, but my favorite is my Waterman. Followed by the Mont Blanc. Anyway, haven't been using them much lately but pulled them out to review and do maintenance and I guess I got over-zealous priming the nib on the Waterman. ;-( I noticed it had a spot that looked bendy, so I was babying it. Until today. and it just snapped off. Been pursing sites looking for nib repair/replacement (but I also am not sure this is a Phileas?). I bought these in the 1990s. Attaching a couple of photos (sorry

    Nib Help For A Nubie

    I am a newly addicted FP enthusiast with a few entry level pens. I am so excited about the Baltimore Pen Show coming up on Saturday because I've never been to a show and I'm hoping to pick up many goodies (paper, a pen case, some ink etc.) One thing makes me nervous though. I have a Sheaffer Safari that writes incredibly well compared to my other pens and I get bummed when I write with the others because they are scratchy in comparison even though all are M nibs. I would love to have someone look at/adjust these other pens but I'm not sure how it will be received if I ask someone to tune a
  11. I recently returned to my happy life of writing with my fountain pens, and as these things go, the tipping on one of my favorite everyday writers pops off. I then put together this post about my first salvage regrind, and FPN goes down for several weeks. The pen in question is an Inoxcrom Daisy pen. It's an inexpensive plastic bodied pen I bought at a bookshop in Boston several years ago. Before the "incident" this tip was on the extra-fine side of fine. A nice steady, smooth writer that occasionally dried up if left uncapped for a long time, but usually very reliable.It was one of my favo
