New Here And Looking For Some Nib Support


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone


New here, and really enjoying looking at everyone's collections. I have four fountain pens, but my favorite is my Waterman. Followed by the Mont Blanc.


Anyway, haven't been using them much lately but pulled them out to review and do maintenance and I guess I got over-zealous priming the nib on the Waterman. ;-( I noticed it had a spot that looked bendy, so I was babying it. Until today. and it just snapped off.


Been pursing sites looking for nib repair/replacement (but I also am not sure this is a Phileas?). I bought these in the 1990s.


Attaching a couple of photos (sorry for the crappy quality ;-). TIA for your help.

Dana- look up "dutchpen", a fellow FPN member , and email him your pictures, he might have Waterman parts, in this case a replacement nib for sale.

Thanks Wolverine1! (is it a Phileas? )


The one with the broken nib is a Waterman Expert.

An Expert, huh? Well, who knew... It's actually my second one. I had a green one I liked better - the nib was PERFECT - but I dropped the pen out of my car one day and never found it. So I bought that blue one. Never really meshed with the nib on it, but I still liked it.

Thanks, Blue Knight.

Yay Wolverine1! - Dutchpen has a nib for my Waterman Expert II - already ordered! THANK YOU SO MUCH!


Just fyi - I did a search online for the Expert II, the Acme Leonardo da Vinci and the Montblanc Noblese Oblige. Let's just say I have a renewed appreciation for these pens now. ;-) I have another one, but I must have taken it home from the office. Better look for it...


Thank you again!

      @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.
