Product Description
Writing with this Grifos Nero Muse fountain pen is like holding a piece of history in your hand. The barrel is hand-turned from an ancient wood known as “bog oak,” found in the swamps of eastern Europe and carbon-dated to be up to 5,460 years old—that's roughly 1,000 years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza!

All right, folks. I'm a bit new to pens so maybe this is my fault, but my bog oak simply will not write. Not a line, not a spot, nada. I made sure the converter is inserted correctly. Is there anything I can do about this? Or did I just buy a beautiful-but-utterly-useless item?

Do I need to get my eyes checked? Not seeing the threads to support a screw on cap as described.

I agree with this. I'm from an Italy neighbor country... And if it would be shipped from Italy i would order it immediately. But shipping and customs from the US would be too much. The pen looks awesome. Maybe next time :)

Hello, you have to understand we have deal with MD a bundle price and orders for these pens. Even if you purchase it in US with all the travels and customs you said (with reason) probably you will purchase it at lower price then not here in Italy where you will purchase one only pcs and worst with included 22% Italian VAT tax (due from all EU customers) ... Regards from Italy! Maurizo

I purchased the rollerball from this drop and love it. Unfortunately I broke the plastic tip off the end of the pen when I dropped it on a hard surface. I tried emailing the Grifos support team a week ago but they didn’t reply. Does anyone know who I might be able to contact to send the pen for repair?

I have received back the repaired pen tip, and it looks just like new. I am so pleased and grateful, and even more so seeing as you took care of me so graciously at no charge. Thanks so much Maurizio!! I'm so glad to have my Bog Oak working again :)

Yes. The first FP option is : no pen, only rollerball.

One company I have not been impressed with. They keep using the same pen design and just change the outer surface materials. Boring and bland.

I have been using fountain pens for 51 years now and counting. I have no issue with the pen on how its writes but whats good for me may not be good for you. I can only speak about extra fine and fine nibs since that is all I care about, so in that respect the pens perform great. Pens are not oversized by any means but comfortable to hold even for my large hands. I don't use these pens much to be honest.

Can I order a second nib at later date? Has anyone sued the standard extra or fine nib versus the gold nib? Any difference besides price?

Hello, sure we could provide you a second nib when you would like. Just contact us. Both the nibs, standard or 18 K gold are from well know German company Bock, you may find online many reviews for these nibs that are at the top quality. Say so a solid gold nib is something more flexible then standard one. This is the first feature that a gold nib have (beside the value of the gold itself). I remain at your disposal!

Hello, we are who handcraft these pens here in Italy so would be not interesting nor fair write about our own made pens, but if you read the hundreds post here below or the other hundreds posts on our other drops here on MD you will find many of them who write about ink flow and writing features (google it as well). Further I post here a link toward a YouTube video made by pen Youtuber Stephen Brown. It is about this pen and is 10 minutes long. If you would skip and go to the minute 8.50 you will find about writing test. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Levn6VKzoo8&feature=youtu.be Thank you and best regards from Aosta Valley, Italy Maurizio

The washing must be done at least 2-3 time year if the pen is used or made one time before repost the pen if not used for months. What you must do is leave the whole nib section in a glass full of lukewarm water added with a spoon of alchool for a night long period then wash it under the tip and try to write. If no positive result arrive do this again for one more night. If again the pen not write again you have to disassemble the nib and the feeder (the black plastic "tongue" under the nib)  from the point section. Proceed as follow: Before  taking away the nib please look at the nib back and remember the nib position according to the black nib feeder (you may take a picture). Keep the finger grip section screw on to the pen barrel to have the best grip while changing nibs. To change a nib please use a piece of cotton cloth or a bicycle rubber ( or rubber gloves like the ones used to wash dishes) to get a perfect grip of the nib when you pull it out and push it down. 1. To take away the nib, hold it tight with the piece of rubber and pull it out moving it slightly right and left. After this leave these three parts (nib, feeder and point section) in water and alchool glass again one night and then reassemble them. 2. To reassemble the parts start from the feeder, it fits easily inside the holder turning it right or left till you find the feeder's nest, you will hear a click and feel the feeder slides inside. 3. Take the nib and lean it against the feeder to understand the future nib position. Insert the bottom of the nib between the feeder and the holder and push it down much enough to make it slide inside the holder (use a cotton cloth or rubber), continue pushing it down (without rotate them anymore) till you see and feel the nib is enough inside the holder (it doesn't slide inside more). All is done now and the pen will write again. Let me know if all will be fixed or no so we could help you again in the chance. Best regards Maurizio
