Thank you guys, with my naked eye it looks alligned. It's toothy in pretty much every direction except for straight down. I will see if the company I bought it from will accept returnes after a pen has been inked.
If they won't, it is likely that the pen can be smoothed to your liking. If you got one of the fine or extra fine nibs, however, the nib will not be like butter, since the ink flow to produce that fine of a line isn't too much.
The tines can be widened a tad, allowing more ink to flow, and that should make the pen feel a bit smoother. But, no matter the ink flow or the size of the nib, it's likely--even if the nib is aligned properly--that you have an inner corner or two grabbing the paper and making the nib scratchy.
Mike Masuyama has been suggested--and he's an excellent and worthy craftsman. There are others, like me and Linda Kennedy (of Indy-Pen-Dance) that do nib smoothing, too.
If you'd like, you can contact me through my website in the signature below. Regardless of who you get to tune your pen, I wish you all the best in having the pen worked on. The Sailor is far too good of a pen to not write to your liking.
