I just received my new Kickstarter pen, Namisu Ixion Titanium with Bock titanium nib. I am having some ink flow issues and noticed the nib slit is very tight, with no light coming through so I think this is the problem (I have washed and flushed the pen out two times). I normally open up nib slits with a pen knife but never tried on a titanium nib. So before I ruin a brand new nib does anyone have any advise for working on a titanium nib?
Second question, is the minor flow issue. It writes well, but stops once in a while, mostly when dotting the "i" and crossing the 'T', with some dry starts. Does this sound like the nib slit being too tight?
