    Default problem with montblanc nib and cap

    Good night:

    I have a problem with a Montblanc Starwalker fountain pen: Iím not able to remove the nib from the cap
    I have tried with diferent tools but its impossible. Iím starting to damage the nib, so I need your advice.

    Do you have any idea?

    Thanks!

    I'd message Ron Z and ask him.

    Select a pencil eraser that's sightly smaller in diameter than the inside of the cap, press it against the exposed part of the section and screw it out. Don't press too hard; I notice that Francis Goossens isn't a fan of Starwalker cap threads. See: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/f...hreads-repair/

    Hope you succeeded to remove the section in the meantime?
    Alternatively you could try using a triangle file or better a triangle scraper which centers in the inner chamber of the nib unit
