Knocking Out An Eversharp Adjustable Nib


Recommended Posts

Hi Gang,
Just a quick question about knocking an Eversharp Adjustable nib out of its section (or collar).

The nib in question is on its way to me as part of a Doric Gold Seal 2nd generation parts pen.

I think that the nib is a larger size Mk. 2 nib that could be equivalent in size to a Mk. 1 #9 nib.


It doesn’t have the Airliner ink valve and so it’s either a personal point nib (as per original),

or it’s been modified at some point in 80+ years, at this point I don’t know but it doesn’t really

affect my question.


Over the years I’ve knocked out a few nib-&-feeds and I’ve found that as the feed knocks out,

the nib itself stays put meaning that the feed slides over the nib and tip.

Perhaps I'm doing it wrong, but that's what seems to happen.


For a traditional nib this isn’t really a problem, but I’m concerned that I may break the back of the

nib slider and/or damage the feed as I knock it out if the nib doesn’t move with the feed, if that makes sense.


Is this likely to occur, or am I over thinking it?

Has anyone else experienced the feed moving but not the nib when knocking the pair out, or am I just doing it wrong?


Anyway, here are a couple of pictures of the nib and any advice that you could give me would be very much appreciated.




Cheers & Thanks

      @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.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
