Hello again to all my FP friends,
I've got two English-made Parker Duofold Juniors from the 1950s, both bought from different sellers in different countries. One has a medium nib and the other a broad oblique stub nib and both are the smoothest nibs imaginable. I mean, ridiculously butter smooth with some nice softness to boot.
However, they both have are extremely dry writers that won't write at all unless some pressure is applied.
I've tried improving flow by using a brass shim to open up the tines a little and it has helped some, but I'm just wondering if this is a common trait of UK Duofolds.
Could the smoothness be related to a baby's bottom issue?
Has anyone had similar experiences? If so, what did you do to solve the issue?
