You can’t believe how excited I am to get this nib reground so quickly! Your workmanship is beyond words.
So much of my day involves writing and surprisingly I start very early in the morning recording all of my “moves” on legal paper using a Windows 7 version of RISK. I do this to get myself focused and disciplined on writing legible letters that are evenly spaced. I sit with proper posture and use my arm motion on concert with my hand and fingers. At work, I use my pens to make notes during court cases, hearings and meetings. I just finished making a note and signing a friend’s birthday card. A Facebook greeting just doesn’t compare.
Having one of your reground nibs helps to make writing a more pleasurable experience! I only wish younger people who seem preoccupied with texting could experience the joy of owning a superb writing instrument. Having this kind of pen makes me want to be a better communicator. It helps me to remember words while forming my thoughts. In short, the nib you reground will no doubt be connected to my cerebrum via my central nervous system.
Thank you Nicholas! What a great hand written card with your new, custom 1.50mm stub nib!
This person sure has command of Spencerian Lettering! Look at the letter forms on this thank you card to me, stunning!
The pens arrived today and both work wonderfully! Frankly, I am not sure which pen is which. I photographed writing samples hoping you might be able to tell the nib size on each pen.
Lovely note from Sherill and she is very happy with her pen now repaired.
Two difficult pens modified with extra flex! One is a Pilot Custom 823 with added flex. Tricky to do because the nib is a unique shape. The other is a Mont Blanc 149 with a special nib that also had additional flex added to it.
Judge for yourself, they sure can perform! My wife Janet Takahashi is a master calligrapher and she did the writing samples.
The owner of the pens said "Wow!! That’s awesome - Janet’s skills are amazing - I’d like to acquire her skills when I grow up😀😀. Thank you so much for the quick work bud. Really appreciate your help. Best M."
A few weeks ago i got a Montblanc 149 from you- big wide wet nib.
I finally got around to using it and it is fantastic!
Beautiful pen and your work is exceptional
Please keep me in mind if you ever get any other 149’s in.
I'm an artist and use this model of pen all the time
I’m loving this pen! It’s such an expressive nib - I love how it writes.You’ve done it again.
My Pelikan arrived this afternoon, and after a few minutes writing with it, I couldn't be more pleased! It writes so much better than it has in years….maybe ever. The line is the size I was looking for and the feed is perfect! And it’s smooth. Everything I was looking for. Thank you for the excellent work and very efficient turn-around. All the best,

A big shout out to my good client Chip Sullivan who requested to have one of his Mont Blanc 149 pens ground to a custom .50mm size, down from the factory size of .70mm
It takes a lot of careful shaping to create a tip that is exactly like a factory .50mm size. Least to Chip is very happy;
“Hi Greg: I am so pleased you liked the drawing, I always have a wonderful experience doing a drawing with the pens you repair and get running like new for me. Please fee free to post it on your website…I would be honored!” Chip Sullivan
Sam purchased a custom, smooth and juicy 1.50mm Parker 51 pen recently from me, and he is quite pleased;
“I’ve really been enjoying the pen. That nib is just outstanding. Generally speaking I like oversize pens with broad stubs and italics, in particular pens with thick grip sections. “Oversize and thick” is needless to say not how one would describe a Parker 51. But it’s also the case that something like a Delta Dolcevita Oversize doesn’t exactly fit in a jacket pocket very felicitously. This 51 gives me the kind of nib I really like but in the perfect size and weight for carrying on my person.
