Aurora 88 Nikargenta Question

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I purchased a beautiful first Italian pen called Aurora Nikargenta which looks like P 51 that I love. The nib is amazing and pen fills well. However upon filling the pen does not write. Can you please help or suggest a repair person who can help me with it in the United States. The pen came from Italia so I rather not send it back. Many thanks.

Daft question, but did you give it a good soak to make sure there was no old dried ink clogging the feed?

 

Good luck!

I am wondering how it is that it fills but does not write? Are you able to give us a couple of photos of the nib, top and side please? Did the pen in fact fill?

 

Congratulations on the Nikargenta 88, by the way. They are great pens.

I am soaking it in the water now for the past two days as advised. I also noticed that the nib tines are not aligned. I will get the photos on Sunday. Yes, it does fill and it is indeed a beautiful pen. My first Italian pen. Thank you again. Stay tuned for the photos.

I have discovered the problem. The tines are not aligned and they are splayed. I need to take it a good nib meister. Any recommendations?

I always send my pens off to The Nib Grinder.

 

His prices are reasonable, and his work is very good.

 

I think he does a great job keeping the nib's unique character while also making 'em write better at the same time.
