Montegrappa Nerouno Tines Too Far Apart - No Ink Flow.. Help?


Recommended Posts

Hey all,


I have a Montegrappa NeroUno Linea that I bought a few months back for my birthday. I had a few flow issues with it, but I put it down to my writing style (I'm a lefty and write hooked) and that the pen just needed flushing and/or getting used to my writing style.


Fastforward to now when I took a serious look at the nib. I realised that there is an obvious gap between the tines on the nib. I'm not sure if this is normal, as the nib itself doesn't have a breather hole, but there is a definite gap between the tipping material on the nib.. I'm fairly certain that this isn't normal.


I'm not a nibmeister or at all experienced with fountain pen repair. Being that this is an expensive pen (~£450), I certainly don't want to void the warranty or anything like that.


There is no flow of ink between the tines unless I prime the feed, and even then it sometimes runs dry (I have flushed the pen numerous times). While it is a solution, it's not a permanent solution.


Any help, guys? Really would appreciate any thoughts.

I'm sorry I can't help your question but I am experiencing similar problems. Do you notice ink leak in the cap as wells?
