Wow!!!!! :o that has to be one of the hand written pen reviews I've seen!!!! :)

I can't wait to see all of the pictures, it's a great pen!!!!
Every time there is a negative in life there is always a positive. A failed test, a relationship gone sour. Whatever it may be, your life is not over. If you dwell on the negative you can`t see the world with the right eyes. There is a positive in every moment, even if it is small. Try your whole life to find that positive and live off of it and you will be loved. My blog... Check it!!!

I've experienced nib problems similar to the ones you report, a sort of greasy resistance and occasional skipping, particularly on the downstroke. These are often newness in the nib and will dissapear with use.

Washing the pen through with water will often help and there will probably be instructions about this with the pen.

Sometimes people advise washing new pens through with a weak detergent. Bear in mind though, that some manufacturers discourage this practice, so only do this if you know it won't cause any damage.

The best remedy to this is heavy use.

Incidentally, I find that holding the nib still on the paper for a split second before making the downstroke can often help.

I love that pen!! I received a Van Gogh midi in a trade which skips a little on the downstroke now and then (I was made aware of this before trading) and it doesn't really bother me too much. If it did it every time it would be a different matter. Apart from that, I love it, and am hoping to trade for a couple more in the future.

Has anyone else had this problem and managed to cure it? Do pass on your knowledge if so.
