Many pen collectors like to do their own repairs and are quite capable of doing so. However, if you are new to repairing vintage writing instruments, we strongly suggest that you proceed with caution. Start out with some junkers before you launch into restoring that recently acquired oversized Doric. Vintage pens are fragile relics of the past and it becomes more important all the time to try and preserve them in the best way known. If you are the least bit uncertain as to how to proceed with a repair, we recommend contacting a professional pen repair person. In other words, please let your common sense prevail!

#ANB  Acrylic Nib Block $25

For those of you who do pen restoration, a nib block is an important item for your tool box.
