Where To Find Parker Frontier Spare Nib?



Recommended Posts

I live in Kolkata, India.

I have a Parker Frontier Matte Black fountain pen which has been a longtime favourite! Recently its nib got destroyed as it fell from my table . I do not want to buy a new one as this particular one has many fond memories attached to it. Will appreciate if anybody tells me how or where do I get a spare nib for this particular pen, preferrably in golden/dual colour?

You might also ask Dutchpen. Here's his classified listing for nib units: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/classifieds/item/33971-modern-pen-nibs-and-nib-units-renewed/

 

It includes:

Urban F and M USD 5 each
Jotter (several sizes) USD 5 each

Seeing that the indian frontiers retail for $8, it may not make sense to buy from outside India. Subbu_Asa(thats a nice addition) suggested the best option.

I checked with Luxor website. They have only spare Vector and Beta sections not for Frontier. I wanted to replace the nib for an old Sonnet we found in my in-laws' place that has similar nib but in vain.

Sonnet is a modern pen and its nib/nib sections are available. You may check with your local Parker dealer.

the sonnets we got are something like 10 plus years old and Sonnet nib units cost like £30. As Frontier Matt nibs fit the Sonnet (I have one and tried on Sonnet) I thought getting a nib in India would be cheaper as pen itself costs only INR 600 or so. Buying a couple of Frontier from Luxor with gold finish and discarding the pen after taking off the nibs is cheaper than original Sonnet nibs. Frontier nib is quite good as compared to my Insignia.

All you have to do is call or write a email to luxor guys... They surely will oblige... They changed my complete pen barrel and Cap when my cap clip broke

I think there is an exclusive Luxor showroom in South City Mall, Prince Anwar Shah Rd. Call and check.

 

Gem and Co, Chennai has spares, asking price Rs.250/- , you may call and check

 

Still, ask Luxor, I have seen spares.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
