Nib-Meister In Denver, Or Elsewhere?

Hi all!

 

I have recently gotten back into the fountain pen world (yay!) and while I am absolutely loving it I am having some issues with my latest purchase.

 

I purchased a Lamy 2000 and have heard plenty about the QA/QC issues the Company sometimes has with the nibs. I believe the pen I purchased writes well, but not perfect (and not as well as some have raved). The rest of the pen is incredible, it just feels a bit scratchy at times.

 

I heard great things about Michael Masuyama, but his current turn-around is 12 weeks. I live in Denver, so that would be ideal although I haven't found anyone yet. Any other recommendations for quick-ish turn around? I am happy to pay extra for an expedited service.

 

Thanks everyone for any information!

 

Regards,

Mike

Dan Smith is in Iowa, check out his website which is : www.nibsmith.com

Dan's turnaround time is maybe 2 weeks at most.

Try catching Mike at a pen show. He will work on your pen while you are sitting with him. Since you are in Denver it should be easy to get to SF or LA or DC. I'm biased but you should book a flight to SF for the show in August.

Thanks Farmboy! He is actually slated to be at the Colorado show here in Denver in October. Might just put the pen away and use another until then. Though I do have a best friend in SF! :D
