    • Assess fountain pen nib damage. The nib is the small metal piece at the tip of the pen from which ink flows.

    • Practice caution when removing the nib, as it is sharp and may cut you.

    • Remove the nib by gripping its top with two fingers and pulling away from the body of the pen. Gently grip the top of the nib with your index finger and thumb. Pull the top away from the pen's body to remove the nib.

    • Removing the nib helps to better assess the fraying of the tines, which are the two thin pieces at the point of the nib.
