I have noticed on a recently purchased Danitrio Densho that the feed, which has a flat bottom which lines up with the flat edge of the section, can go in a number of different ways over perhaps 10% of the 360 degree range. I think its because the flat part of the feed is about a mm longer than the flat part of the section such that there is enough margin for some rotational play. I've gotten pretty good at lining it up well enough that the nib doesn't go in crooked vs the feed, but I somehow feel this shouldn't be needed in a pen that is worth over $1000.


Do the other Danitrio pen owners here notice the same sort of behavior?


Please see my home-grown paint job in an effort to illustrate.
