Hello, this is my first post.


Anywho, I think I might have found the perfect feed placement on an Ahab.

Out of the box, it barely wrote at all. Tons of skipping. But after adjusting the feed and putting it a little lower, it was perfect.

Here's a picture of writing before adjusting the feed and after, excuse my bad handwriting:






Here's a picture of writing and playing with the flex after adjusting the feed. There's still some railroading when pushing the Ahab to its limits though:






Here's a writing comparison between the adjusted Ahab and a Lamy Safari with a medium nib. Both pens are using Noodler's Bulletproof Black ink. The Ahab's writing is noticeably darker and wetter:







Here's a signature comparison between the Safari and the Ahab. I like the Ahab's signature more, but that might be because the flex might have made it look a little better. But it is nicer looking and blacker than the Safari's.







Finally, here is a picture of the feed placement on the Ahab.





Thanks for reading.
