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 $30

Sorry, temporarily out of stock.

For those of you who do pen restoration, a nib block is an important item for your tool box. We've used a machined steel nib block for many years and once in awhile you can turn one of these up, but the steel blocks run hundreds of dollars. These new precision made acrylic nib blocks work perfectly for straightening and re-shaping nibs. Better still, the cost is affordable for everyone. Clear acrylic nib block measures 11.5 cm x 5 cm (4.5 x 2 inches), with diameters on both convex and concave surfaces running from 3 to15 mm (1/8" to 19/32").  Use a burnisher to work the kinks out of your nibs on the acrylic nib block.  Nibs shown in photo not included.
