A Happy Client With His Mont Blanc 149 Custom Regrind!

Original artwork created with a Mont Blanc 149 .50mm Custom Nib

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

(UPDATE!) Saving An Onoto #7 Nib!

Quite the challenge and I am up to it! This poor Onoto #7 nib came in rather in poor condition, shortened and missing its tipping.

But after careful work to re-tip the nib to original shape/size/proportions as the factory would have done the tipping and a bit of re-plating of the platinum mask on the tines, the nib is now ready for many more years of service!

(UPDATE 11/13/19 Here is what the owner of this nib said when he received it:)

“Just to let you know The fountain pen nib of Onoto has arrived today sooner than expected and the workmanship is probably the best I’ve seen seen as a long standing vintage pen collector. I recommend Greg Minuskin to anyone for nib re-tipping services having seen the quality of his workmanship.”
