the damage is right on the tip unfortunately
That's unlucky, I've dropped my safari a few times on wood flooring with no damage.
If I was replacing the nib I would go with a fine one. I have medium and my writing is quite small.
Or a medium pen and fine nib, or 2 new pens one of each, or 3 pens medium, fine and extra fine.
Yep I have very little impulse control. I spent a week's wages on a camera over Christmas.
Although I had been researching them for the best part of a year.
