"The typical example is Frank's use of an open flame to loosen a section. Today we use other, safer ways to heat up a pen. Still, Frank used procedures that can be found, verbatim and with the same illustrations, in the Parker repair manuals from the 1930s and '40s"
This exact claim has been made for decades. But it's false.
As far as I can determine, no penmaker in history ever described or depicted the use of open flame to loosen a celluloid pen's section.
As I said, it's the myth that just won't die.
