Waterman Hemisphere Disassembly?



Recommended Posts

Hello, I was just cleaning up my Waterman Hemisphere and found that I did not know how to take the feed and nib out, if that is possible in the first place. I was wondering if somebody would be able to tell me how to disasseble it.

 

 

 

Thank you,

Nick

Hey there!

I have the pen too and unfortunately, it is all one unit.

If you shop for new nibs for it, it comes with the entire grip and all that.

 

As such, taking it apart would mean you'd never get it back together. Shame they don't make pens like that used to! :/

Hi,

 

You won't be able to get the pen apart as Nashten said it's all one unit but I have a hemisphere and actually the nib and feed can be easily just pulled out. It's friction fit so yeah you can just pull it out to clean etc. :)

I have several hemisheres but on only one I am able to pull out nib. And one I have broken the feed while attempting a pull! Better dont try. They are too beautiful to destroy.

The opposite experience: I have four Hemispheres and all of them can be disassembled without problems. Soaking the grip section for a while, depending on the history of the pen, may help. And, of course, pulling the feed out should be done carefully _without any rotation_. If you find yourself applying significant force, you'd better give it up.

helps greatly.

Thank you guys, I was able to carefully pull out the feed which now makes cleaning a whole lot easier.
