As with my phileas, the Jinhao has the type where you rotate a shaft and the plunger goes up or down, to draw up or expel ink.
Stick the tip into the ink and rotate shaft and up goes ink
Not so much with the Jinhao! Nothin. submerging more and more of the tip. nothin.
FInally, I submerged the nib end, far as it would go til I hit bottom and the shaft above the feed system was partly submerged and THEN drew up some ink but only about halfway.
Pen writes nicely.
Problem with the feed system? seems it shouldn't have to submerge half the pen just to draw up ink. It's on their nice and snug. do I need to request a replacement converter? (isellpens.com = vendor)
please advise, thank you!
