Three Steps to Change Lamy Fountain Pen Nibs

Step 1:

Find a surface which is firm but not too hard, the best choice for this would be a notepad or similar book.

Step 2:

Use a penny or other coin to pin the fountain pen nib down against the notepad. Be firm but don’t use too much force on the nib to avoid bending the nib of the fountain pen.

Step 3:

Pull the body of the fountain pen away from the fountain pen nib to remove the nib from the body. This should not require much force and the nib should come off with ease.

To fit a new nib, simply slot the nib in place where the old one used to be. Ensure that the nib is completely flush to the fountain pen before inking and writing.
