All grinds with a custom pen order are $30, only on my own Jowo and Bock nibs. I sometimes send gold and titanium nibs to Mark Bacas to be adjusted or ground.
Getting it right. If we were at a pen show and you handed me the pen, I did some work to it, handed it back, and it wasn’t just right, you would hand it back until I had it right. That’s how I work. When you get the pen back from a grind or tuneup and it’s not just exactly right, please don’t think that we’re finished. Let me know how it feels and we’ll continue the work from there. First return gets free shipping, after that I ask that you pay for the return shipping. Any questions please do ask.
Ebonite nib units
I’m providing ebonite nib units with all Shinobi, Prospector, and Breaker pens from now on (April 2020), or as long as I’m able to keep buying them.
This allows the nib and feed to be oriented in any position so that the top of the nib lines up with the pen barrel in just the right way. I do not recommend pulling nib and feed for regular cleaning as this can result in a loose fit, and a drippy or poor writing pen. I don’t recommend pulling the converter unless it breaks b/c the fit between nib unit nipple and converter is extremely tight. In fact I have to sand the nipple down a little so a converter will even fit on it. This is a very thin area and could break if you’re not extremely careful.
I will provide a small rubber grip with these pens, so that if you HAVE TO, you will be able to pull the nib and feed, and realign it so that the top of nib lines up with the pen barrel correctly.
Again – I don’t recommend you take these apart unless it’s completely necessary, or the converter fails.
