Recommended Posts

Hello everyone I have just registered this site hoping that I could have my problem solved,hopefully.

 

I have a laureat fountain pen(I think it is newer version) that has a broken nib.

 

Because it was a gift from my father, I have been trying to finda replacement nib but so far no good.

 

Is there any site or person who sells them?

 

I do not have much money so I just want the nibs .

 

If you guys know any sites or if you are willing to sell me one

 

please reply so that we can talk about it.

 

Sorry if my english sounds strange( i am a foreigner)

 

and thank you in advance.

Hi and :W2FPN:

 

I am sorry to hear about your loss.

 

I have just checked one of the common sellers for items like this (an Ebay shop called: "Penseller from France") who normally has loads of nibs/sections for sale, but alas his shop does not list the Laureat any more.

You could try to send him a personal message, though, as the shopowner is a member here going by the name Lewertowski. Perhaps he still has a small stash, or knows where to get them.

 

Otherwise you'll just have to google about for them I'm afraid, see if someone sells a defective Laureat for parts somewhere.

 

Good luck

Thank you very much for your information.

I will try to keep in touch with him.

If there are any more suggestions please share.

If it's a later Laureat it shares the nib and feed with the Graduate/Allure/Apostrohe siblings, non-hooded Reflex, JIF and Expert II. You can usually get one of these pens in GP or SS. JIF Metal and some Reflex come in GP and sell for much less than a Laureat section.

Check this.

Thanks everyone.

so it seems that there are some nibs that is compatible.

Now I have to get one of them but I wonder

 

1. which is the cheapest nib i can get?

2. which nib writes better?

 

i heard laureat has a very nice nib

so if i am to replace it I want the nib to be as good as the original.

so far i have looked for harmonie and expert nibs which i can get for 40, 45$

i want to know if there are better suggestions or cheaper price.

Thanks You.

Even the cheapest Waterman nibs are very good one.

 

The main difference between the two generations of Lauréats is the clip's shape at the top. The first generation Lauréat has a square shape, while the second generation has a round shape at the top of the clip.

This would be the first generation's nib and section :

Then, whether you need a gold plated nib or a steel one depends on the other metallic colours on your pen. The first generation Lauréat had gold trims only, to my knowledge.

 

If yours is a second generation, some other poster said that the Graduate's nib should be compatible.

If the nib you need looks like this, you can get a complete Waterman Graduate for around 10€ + shipping, google it.

I have several laureats and they are indeed terrific writers

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

      @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.
