Where Can I Find Replacement Nibs And Feeds For A Fountain Pen With Hooded Nib?



Recommended Posts

Hello FPN,

 

This is my first post here, although I've been reading the forums since a few weeks.

 

I have a Montegrappa pen, about which I don't know much: just that it is over 20 years old and used to write heavenly.

 

I started using it a few weeks ago, when I began liking fountain pens. I have lots of them, but all of them cheap (none from plastic though), except this Montegrappa pen (if someone can identify it I'd be very thankful).

 

The problem was that, although it wrote better than a phoenix's feather, it was scratched and bitten by me when I was very little, and also had its nib crooked.

 

How I ruined the nib & feed

 

Being an idiot, I tried to straighten the nib even if it worked perfectly. After lots of hard work I managed to shatter the nib and break the feed in half.

 

And now I can't find a replacement nib and feed for it. The rest of the pen is PERFECT, I just need new nib & feed.

 

So where can I find replacement feed and nib for it?

 

I tried to use nibs and feeds from other pens, but I have no other pen with hooded nib, and all the nibs are feeds are GIGANTIC compared to what it had, they obviously will never fit.

 

Is there a universal feed and nib size for fountain pens with hooded nibs? What should I do? I have already punished myself by writing with this thing, but I don't think I can stand it much more, it's not a bad fountain pen but it bears no comparison with the Montegrappa.

 

Attached photos.

Forgot to mention, the first photo is from when the nib was still good... a few days before I broke it into tiny pieces.

Bump for an answer... maybe? Pretty please? It's an awesome pen, I really don't want to just leave it in a drawer.

Ask on the Italian Pen forum

There is not universal fit hooded nib, you need a replacement Montegrappa nib

I suggest contacting European pen doctors (maxpens, fountainbel) as they may have more experience with Italian pens
