Re-Grinding Carene Nib?

Recommended Posts

 

Wasn't sure where to put this topic, Waterman or Repairs, so I just rolled the dice. :)

 

I have a 'Palladium/Silvertone' trim Waterman Carene with a very wet, juicy M nib. Can these types of nibs (inlaid) be successfully re-ground?

 

And if so, any particular nibmeister recommendations for this sort of job? I want it taken down to F or even EF. Thanks.

My other pen is a Montblanc and...

 

My other blog is a tumblr.

There's no theoretical impossibility attached to it, although the difficulty of dismounting the point from its setting and then remounting it would add some challenge to the process.

 

I don't have any recommendation (because there's several that are up to the job, I expect), but if someone were asking me to do it I'd be... slightly hesitant (take the chance of breaking it while dismounting the point... or take the chance of scuffing up the shell while doing the work in situ... hmmm).

I was afraid of that...but I think you're correct.

 

I'd do a swap with someone if I could. Or purchase a new section, but that might cost more than I paid for the pen itself.

If the M is in good condition you could sell it to reduce the costs.
