    I've got a Waterman that I bought maybe 5 years ago in Washington at a great pen store -- though I forget the name now. At any rate, by accident the nib has been bent to a curl -- though it doesn't seem drastic. Anyone have a place I can send this to for repair -- some place with reasonable prices as I don't recall the pen being that expensive (maybe $150 at the most). There are way to many choices via google for me to sort through!

    Thanks for your insight.

    I would try contacting the manufacturer first. The fountain pen manufacturers generally adhere to a pretty good standard of customer service. They may fix it for free even if it was your fault.
    I had good experience with Pelikan customer service and read good things about other FP manufacturers.

    Thanks Dmax and Kai. I'd seen the repair site for the latter -- and will give him a go if Waterman doesn't fix it gratis.
