Welcome to my Nib Repair and Adjustment Services!

I am proud to offer my services to all fountain pen lovers. I have 23 years of experience with Sailor. I have been blessed with the opportunity to work extensively with "the god of fountain pens" Mr. Nagahara and his son. I learned from them the various subtle causes for a pen to lose its true smooth writing. As for the nib adjustment techniques, I learned directly from one of the most respected Japanese "pen-doctors," Mr. Kawaguchi. In recent years, I have worked as a distributor for companies such as Ancora, Conway Stewart, Sailor, and Stipula. I have extensive experience making repairs and adjustments, especially with those by the aforementioned companies and also those by Conklin, Delta, Ferrari da Varese, Platinum, and Visconti. I hope that my experiences and skills with fountain pens will be able to benefit you.

Customers have had good results shipping their pens to Mike-It-Work with USPS Priority Mail with Signature Confirmation. For valuable pens, please consider insurance. If sending by FedEx or UPS, please send as "Signature Required" - Mike-It-Work is run out of a private home, but I cannot guarantee boxes that are left at my door during my absence.
