My Phileas nib feels toothy and dry. I do not know what to do? Some one suggested using a shaving blade between the tines. I am afraid.
I think the first thing would be to try to get a 10x loupe to examine the nib, looking for misalignment (and off-center feed) especially as shown in the first post. If it is, try carefully bringing them into better alignment just with your fingernails, testing after each attempt. Goulet pens sells little sheets of brass for working between the tines if needed (brass is softer than steel, so I would prefer them to a razor blade for sure). Other more experienced folks may chime in I hope.
(Edited to add: I hope you get it working better, as my Phileas' nib is very smooth and a favorite for the writing feel.)
