Hello fellow FPN members,
Recently I bought a Lamy Safari converter and a bottle of Waterman Black ink. I decided to go for the Waterman since I've seen it recommended in various places because it flows very well.
The pen always wrote very well with the default cartridge but as soon as I started using the converter with the new ink I've been having skipping issues, very bad first strokes, scratching and uneven ink flow when writing. I've tried with both an F nib and a 1.1 Italic nib and it's noticeably worse with the italic nib for some reason, but it does happen with both.
I've already cleaned my pen thoroughly with water twice but the problem persists. If I force some ink to the nib by using the converter piston it writes great and smooth until it begins to dry and the ink begins flowing from the converter and the problems begin again.
Any help would be appreciated.
