An Update to My Maiora Impronte OS Posillipo FP

I received a package from Yafa. I was so excited when I opened the package to see a new replacement cap. Then came the disappointment. They sent me the wrong cap and it appears to be the regular size cap for their smaller Maiora Impronte pen. Unbelievable!

The new cap (right) is smaller
It’s quite evident the new cap does not fit

I contacted the online pen shop and the solution was to return both (my defective OS cap and their regular replacement cap) to Yafa along with a nice letter. It looks like it will be sometime in June when I’ll get to use my pen again. Not a happy camper right now.

Both caps in the plastic case: sent back to Yafa

For now, my Maiora looks a bit naked without her cap. I placed her safely in one of my unused Levenger pen cases. I’m documenting this here because when I finally receive the correct replacement cap, it’s a guarantee that I will forget where I put my pen for safe keeping. Hahaha!

  1. I recently had a similar experience with a faulty cap on an Opus 88 demonstrator bought as a gift from Cult Pens in the UK. (I’m in Canada). I won’t embarrass either Cult Pens or Opus 88 with details, but let me say publicly that both companies demonstrated a superb level of prompt customer service that will ensure my continued business with both.

    1. That is great to hear about the customer service experience you’ve received from Cult Pens and Opus 88.

      I hope to have my cap issue resolved soon.

      Thank you for sharing your experience. 😊

  2. Hi, did you ever resolve the nib drying out from the hole by clip? I too have a Maiora Impronte that dries between writing. A little frustrating indeed.

    1. Hello Kay…yes I resolved my Maiora issue. They replaced the cap on my pen. There’s a rubber like disc inside that seals the area where the clip opening is. Shine a light into your cap and see if your rubber disk is properly positioned. Let me know if you have any other questions.

      I have the same issue where two of my Conklin All Americans dry out because of the clip placement not covering or sealing the clip holes properly.
