Has anyone else had issues with Organic Studios Aristotle? I love the color, and its behavior on even bad papers is exemplary. However, it has been an extremely dry ink, with startup problems occurring no matter which pen I try it in. I know that, as an iron gall ink, Aristotle will demand good pen hygiene but cleaning and refilling every other day seems a bit much.
Any suggestions? Would dilution help? I've tried the ink in a number of pens that are usually quite wet, including Noodler's Konrad, a Pilot Cocoon (Metropolitan), and a Hero 616, but each of them become unusable after a day or two. R&K Salix has not shown similar issues in the Cocoon.
