Getting Sonnet To Flow Better?
Posted 06 March 2012 - 22:18
My problem is, the Pen is a M nib, normally fine for me, my other Parkers are M's and they are great, the one i have used the most is by far the smoothest..... But this Sonnet, seems so much finer than the rest of them, is there anything i can do about it? I've tried a few different Inks, but have yet to find anything that works really well for it :/ I know some pen's are picky, but this thing sucks
Any help would be great!

(Or daylight can just be seen through, under a 10x loupe.)
This is why I don't believe too much in testing pens in shops, unless they have been worked on in the factory, highly unlikely, they won't be right.
Maybe the thinking is that after a few months of use, the gap will increase to about 1 thou, and so start with zero gap, and it will improve with use and time.
In fact I think Lamy nibs suffer from this problem, and all my three have been improved greatly from the same treatment.
Also I found that Sheaffer Skrip ink seems to be thinner, and improves flow.
