Hi everyone,

This is my first post so I'm not too sure if this is the correct place to troubleshoot about my pen.

Basically my 3rd Fountain pen - the OHTO Tasche isn't writing properly. It's brand new and opened the package to use it just yesterday.

I've tried everything and found out that the nib and feeder alignment is off. Trouble is; I can't actually take out the nib and feeder.

It's far too hard and all I'm getting is blisters and bruised thumbs.

Any help would be fantastic. Once again my apologies if this isn't the right forum section.

FOA, you've get into the wrong forum, the OHTO is a Japanese brand and there is a specific forum section for that, OK that aside, the problem is simply for that small nib and feed, its no where to get a hold of grip. Now take the old cycle inner tube solution, go find a friend or your local cycle store which had loads of old used inner tube, take a scissor and cut several small piece of them off ( and after washing and cleaning them with simple household soap or detergent and thoroughly dried out ) and now you have yourself a piece of material that you can use to grip the pen as well as the nib/feed and exert force to pull them apart. Any similar can do,
