Glad to join the pen community online. I'm relatively new to the hobby and have an 823 newbie question.
I'm going to be away from my new Custom 823 for about three weeks and it's inked up with take-sumi Iroshizuku (so far my favorite combination ever.) Given the nature of the ink, the pen, and its valve-close system, should I still empty the pen before I leave it to sit? If I should flush the pen, does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the last few drops of water out of the 823?
