Visconti Homo Sapiens

I don't think the O-Ring is really necessary but you could always send it to Bryant if you're really wanting it. Just a thin smear of Silicone around the nib unit part that fits insde the section is enough. Don't get any on the feed. I've not had a problem with mine leaking ever since I put silicone in it.

My Homo-Sapiens didn't come with an O-Ring either and started leaking too, but the silicone grease trick works flawlessly since I applied it to the nib unit about 2 months ago. Be careful to apply only to the screwing threads and not on the feed or the little ink holes in the nib unit, otherwise it will affect/obstruct the ink flow. Also make sure you use 100% silicone grease only, I get mine from a shop that sells equipment for scuba diving (the pure silicone grease is used to seal the regulators and other critical parts).

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
