Noteworthy: Nibmeister Richard Binder filmed by National Geographic


Richard Binder on NatGeo

Did you know that there are only about half a dozen people in the world who do what Richard Binder does? With great pride and skill, Richard repairs fountain pens inside and out and restores them to pristine working condition. Most people know Richard as a “Nibmeister”  – a skilled person who can improve, repair, or even reform the nib of a fountain pen. He’s been honing his craft and repairing fountain pens professionally since 2000 in his home in Nashua, New Hampshire.

Please watch the National Geographic video below to watch Richard in action and be sure to visit his website which is jam packed with interesting articles, reference pages, and of course, customized nibs.
