Careful ... you may get a lot of interest from Europe and North America if you write things like this. We can be real pests!

I know this is an older thread, but here goes...

 

I just purchased a Ratnam 302 from a fellow FPN member. it arrived in the mail today and I was looking at the box. It states "Do not separate the Nib from the pen". Can you swap nibs on a Ratnam or are they fixed? Afraid to try and pull out the nib now.

Pens: MB 163R, MB 164R, MB 165R, MB 144R, Pilot Metropolitan, Lamy AL-Star, Jinhao x450, Jinhao x750, and Cross Bailey (hey - $20 at OfficeMax, couldn't pass it up).

Cars: 2009 Subaru Forester, 1995 Porsche 911, 1973 Porsche 914

I swapped the nibs on mine. I don't think they're glued, it's just a warning to deter a layperson from removing the nib and ruining the alignment etc.

It is basically a kind of warranty from seller... which is applicable in India only...

go ahead swap the nibs... we all do
