The rough edges on the threads bottom is the mould flash which reflects the low cost manufacturing of the pen. Some manufacturing debris might be there in the feeder channels, I don't disassemble and tune these pens before despatch, However I do check to my best ability that the tines are aligned, the feeder has no annular gap with the section bore(a major source of blobs) and that the nib slit is clear.

i've read all over about how fine nibs are kind of scratchy and what all, but this thing is so smooooth.
Most of the nibs that I have seen on the Wality have a slight tine misalignment which leads to the scratchy experience, I balance the tines before despatch, if the nib is still not OK in my view, I replace the nib with an aftermarket upgrade that I have stocked up on. Some times the feeder is undersized, so when I discover that during the pre-dispatch check, I replace it. Some folks who received the upgraded nib (because the stock one was untunable) have told me that they liked it very much.
I am glad that the pen is well loved at your end.
Thanks for telling it as it is Watch_art. I have presently run out of the small ones and have just a couple of these large ones left.
