Thanks for the excellent review. And thanks everyone for your comments.
Does the odor of the pen diminish? BlakeNote, was the flow problem resolvable? Has anyone else had that problem?
The odor does diminish over time, however, I will say that mine was of terrible out of the box. I was using Diamine salamander initially when I was having flow issues. I subsequently tried de Atramentis Atlantic blue and it is much improved. I usually have decent to good flow with all Diamine inks, which is what concerns me. I think I will also give a bit better converter a shot. Thanks, all!
