A thousand apologies for posting this if it's already been discussed before.


I just got the Starry Night Van Gough with a fine point nib.  Tried a variety of inks and its just too dang wet for my tastes.  I'd like to "tighten up the tines" and try to adjust the nib a bit, but can't seem to get it out of the pen. 


This particular model (I understand there are more than one) has the feeder/nib that unscrews from the barrel, but once removed, there is no obvious way to get the nib/feeder out of the tube that I just unscrewed from the barrel.  (including picture of the nib/feeder/tube assembly that I'd like to further break down)


Anyone know how to disassemble this part of the pen?  I'd also love to hear suggestions on other ways to "dry out" this pen a bit.


Was thinking of using a combination of the "TWSBI Method" and the SBREBrown's video method for reducing the ink flow.  


Any other suggestion out there?



Thanks in advance.
