  1. Hi! I know this is a bit of a long shot, but I thought it worth a try... I have a Dunhill Namiki pen thats missing its cap, so I'm looking for a replacement. The pen is a 1930's 'Balance Model' of the size that typically takes a number '3' nib, sometimes a number '2' nib is fitted. The cap should be without metal rings, but it can be with or without a clip, and with or without the scored ridge. It can be Dunhill, Namiki or Pilot. The length of the cap should be 6.7 cms, outside diameter at cap opening 1.25 cms, inside diameter 1.15 cms. The length of such a model pen with the cap closed is 13.2 cms. Attached is an example of the same size balance model, and a pic showing the threads on the barrel. Maybe someone has a poor condition Dunhill Namiki pen where the maki-e work is badly worn? - I'd be happy to buy at a good price so I can 'borrow' its cap! Or happy to buy the cap alone as a part. Alternatively, if anyone knows of any pen turners who can make a cap for the pen, please let me know... the problem is I dont have a cap to be copied/replicated, the pen turner would have to work only from pictures.

    Duofold Senior Replacement Cap

    Hello, I have a Duofold Senior in red permanite, double banded, that has a cap lip that is so severely cracked that it's lost four, soon to be five, chunks from its lip, just below the first band. I keep on regluing them, but it's ugly and not at all permanent. I sought some professional help to get the chunks and cracks sealed, but was told that the costs far outweigh the pen value, and the best course for me is to get a new cap. I'd like to avoid buying a whole other Duofold just to get at its cap. If anybody has a spare cap for a red senior in permanite they would be willing to sell me, or direct me towards a group or individual that could do that, I would be eternally grateful! After saving up for two years to get my dream pen, this whole experience is quite heartbreaking! Thank you, jcreilley Here's some pics of the cap so you can see the horror for yourself.
  3. Hello all, I am new to FPN, (although reading posts that show on a Google search has proven very helpful in the past). I have a Levenger Chesterton Espresso FP, and I really like it. My problem is, the clip on the cap snapped off, and Levenger no longer makes/sells this pen or repairs them. The broken cap basically renders the pen unusable, since it allows air into the nib while capped. Does anyone know where I can find a replacement cap, or someone who can reattach the clip effectively? Thanks!
