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.
