I just realized as I was inserting these images, that I didn't take one shot of this pen put together full of ink.
Darnit.

Here are the filling instructions that I sent to Watch_art, there were compiled a while back. These might be useful for others who might want to get their ED pens started.

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.

Best Regards,
Hari

yeah i gotta say i really like this thing. the kids at school have enjoyed this pen more than any of my others. it's HUGE. and it's awesome. and once i got the filling part down, it wrote like a dream. i've read all over about how fine nibs are kind of scratchy and what all, but this thing is so smooooth. i might get a smaller one later if Hari ever carries some more. and the rough edges were no big deal, just when i was washing it out, i noticed that some paper towel got stuck on it, so i cleaned it up. easy as you please.

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.

Regards,
Hari

This is a very patient and thorough review. I'm impressed. And, I bet I'll be trying to pick one of these up for myself.
