  1. Please excuse me if I am posting this in the wrong group. I have very limited knowledge of such pens, but I am looking to purchase an early Montblanc Safety Pen. Any thoughts, recommendations and advice is greatly received. I do own the modern day equivalent of the Heritage 1912, but an original would really be special. Also from looking through various discussions on FPN I see that their are some great people on here who can repair and restore these beauties. On the off chance someone is looking to sell one I would be very interested in finding out more. Many thanks in advanced.
  2. I just received a Montblanc 4F safety filler and it arrived with a loose turning knob and I am hoping that someone may be able to help me diagnose the problem. When turning the knob to extend the nib, it turns with little pressure and when trying to write with it there is no resistance and the nib is easily pushed back into the pen barrel. There also seems to be small gap between the turning knob and barrel. Below are links to photos and a video demonstrating this. Any help or direction will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

  3. Hello, I have been offered a Red Ripple Waterman's 42 Safety pen in what seems to fantastic condition. There are two problems, the nib is a bit bent; but I have a replacement in my parts bin, so I have no qualms about that. The other problem is not such an easy fix, as years ago, when the pen was out for display/sale in the antique store, some imbecile attempted to disassemble it...while standing up. Thankfully, he removed the rear section without cracking anything, but the big problem was that the cross pin that holds the nib unit in the spiral fell out of the pen. Without this, the nib unit will not screw up or down. Is it affordable and relatively cheap to obtain a new cross pin that will fit in, or should I pass on the pen because of the lack of cross pin? I am sorry if that was a bit long winded and confusing.

    A Safety Pen Issue

    Hi everyone, I would like to know something on my safety pen.When I turning the nib inside the barrel,some air bubbles are "exploded" !So many ink "dots" on my hands when I turning the nib inside the barrel. This issue only happen in my no.6 pen and the nib is not the original nib of Montblanc product.But on my other 12 1/2 safety does not have this problem. The reason is a incorrect nib ? Or this problem will happened on any large safety pen. Regards Theodor LH Yu
