Hello all - This is my first time in any forum, so please forgive me if I do something incorrectly. I am wondering if anyone knows of a pen repair shop that might be able to fix my very favourite Grifos fountain pen. It is a celluloid and sterling pen, with the sterling being the broken portion. I unscrewed it to check the ink supply in the converter, and when I put it back together something popped and the parts would no longer screw together. I spoke with a couple of different repair places and they all said that they wouldn't be able to get parts for the pen. I am trying to avoid having to send it back to Italy for repairs, as I could probably purchase a new pen more inexpensively. But this is my favourite. Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome Avalonww,


I'm sure someone knowledgeable about Grifos repair will weigh in shortly, but I just wanted to say 'Welcome' from a fellow Texan. Ron Zorn, one of the moderators here should be able to help you.


In the meantime, there's a plethora of info in these forums. Look around, it's worth the time.






(Jar and I posted at the same time...take his advice).

I have a Grifos Art Deco and the nib and the feed are stuck in the cap. I cannot get them out (the converter will pull out). Does anyone have any ideas? I have not used it heavily but I've had the pen for about 10 years and it has been a good camper until now.


I have not abused or dropped the pen at all. It just suddenly was stuck when I tried to ink it. It had been out of rotation for about 6 or 8 months.
