Help To Remove Nib From Rotring Core Fountain Pen

Recommended Posts

Recently got a Rotring Core Fountain Pen from the Bay. It's a hard starter and skips frequently. Would like to work on nib to improve ink flow but need advice on removal. Rotring Core has a most unusual feed and section. I don't dare mess with it until I get some informed suggestions. Already searched on FPN and did not find anything that appeared to address this well. Thanks for any recommendations.

I have a Rotring Core and I have been able to remove the nib, but not the feed. The nib is mounted on the feed the same way that a Lamy nib is mounted on a Safari, etc, feed. You can grab it on the sides with some rubber grippy material and pull straight out. Putting it back is a cinch, just slip it back on and it should click in place. I tried a bit to remove the feed but I had no success. I don't know if it can be done.

 

I would flush out the pen, though that isn't easy because if you use a bulb syringe the water will leak out from various holes. If you use an ink such as Waterman Serenity Blue (the ex-lax of inks) you may be able to fix the skipping problem. I have found that my Core works with good flowing inks in general. However it didn't agree well with Diamine Majestic Blue, which would give me hard starts and skipping if I let it sit unused for over a week.
