I do work with
vintage fountain pens since 1992. Before, from 1977 till 1992 I sold modern fountain pens
in the shops of my family, here in Hamburg. (We were among Germany´s strongest
Montblanc dealers at that time.)
My pleasure is the
work with vintage pens.
It needs technical
skills and constant research to learn about fountain pens.
It needs an
immense stock of "useless" spare parts.
It needs a lathe,
and lots of tools.
important: many friends around the world who share their secrets with me, in exchange for
the little, I found out myself.
I am still
learning, and am happy about any new information, about materials, makers, tipps and
original Pelikan Toledo, after I restored it.
No use to mail a pen from abroad for a simple repair.
Often, I can point out a local repairsman.
My special skills:
- German Fountain pens, Pelikan, Montblanc, Soennecken, Kaweco ecc.
- Cap lip cracks repaired on the lathe.
- Cap bands tightened with vintage tools
- Cap bands remade and fixed.
- Safetyfiller and pistonfiller cork seals.
contact me before sending any repairs.
And be prepared to wait quite a while - I do have lots of repairs to do, and there always
is a long queue . ........
Buy and Sell.
I do also sell pens - see my offers or on ebay
I do not SELL
spare parts or NIBS (all the good parts would be gone immedately ..... but I am
always open for a trade.
