Nib Sheath On A Majestic Pen

Recommended Posts

I got a majestic pen out of a junk box at the DC pen show. It is really cool black stripes over purple marble.

However, it seems to have a replacement nib with a rubber sheath around it. Without the sheath the feed doesn't fit the pen.

See the picture. The nib has and engraved oval with CHJ or CHI 14k in it. What type of nib is this?

 

So my questions are: is this a common practice when putting replacement nibs in vintage pens, and what is used for the sheath? It could be part of a sac, or some heat shrink material. Does the sheath impact the ink flow? When you do this can the sheath be trimmed back a little to show more of the nib?

 

BTW. 8 fixer upper pens for $50. Four had gold nibs (Wing-Flow 3 and 4s). The Majestic, Two Esterbrook Js, An Epenco, A Parkette, A nameless bulb filler, and a nameless not sure of the filling system. I'm having fun.

I've never seen that done. It's ghetto as hell looking, but I can't see it hurting anything unless it's an bonding filled heat shrink (not likely) and seems prone to causing all sorts of air exchanged and leaking problems.

 

I'd just take it apart and find a nib/feed that fits.

Selling a boatload of restored, fairly rare, vintage Japanese gold nib pens, click here to see (more added as I finish restoring them)

      @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!
