After reading many positive reviews I bought a Delike Alpha from Amazon. Now I'm sure mine is just defective, as turning the pens lose threads the nib GROUND INTO THE TOP OF THE CAP.

Currently the tips of the tines are bent sideways, and won't likely write. I'm curious is anyone here has had this problem.

The pen arrived lose in the packaging, to say the cap wasn't tightly screwed to the barrel. I'd imagine whoever packaged the pen realized this. Quite upset, but I planed on modding it anyways. Oh well.

I've been here a while. I'm familiar with Jinhao and the like, standard centralized manufacturing affair. I know this is made by the same company.

This thing can't be used as it is. Cap's inner ring is too low down. Being that it is plastic glued haphazardly to the inside I can't remove it to change the position.

Wasn't expecting perfection, I did expect it to write at the very least.
