I purchased a TWSBI Precision recently, and I LOVE the pen.  I'm having a bit of trouble with the pen, though, and I'm looking for help on how to fix it...

Basically, once it's writing, it works great.  I've got it inked with Sailor Shikiori 4 Seasons ink (Long Autumn Evening).

Problem is...  Every time I uncap it and start writing, i get no flow of ink.  And if I stop writing with the pen uncapped for anything longer than about 10 seconds, it happens again.

Is this an ink problem?  A nib problem?  How do I fix this?

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Pending any more specific advise here, why not ask TWSBI? It's in their interest to have a satisfied customer.

That’s a little weird because my Precision is just about the most reliable pen I have for starting with no problem ever. I’ve had mine inked with Aurora Blue ever since I got it.

If you've only tried one ink in the pen, I'd suggest you try another ink (if you have one you know is reasonably wet and flowy) before asking TWSBI for help.  Don't know anything about the ink you're using currently, but it's *possible* it could be causing (or contributing to) the problem.

Yes, try another ink. Ask on an ink forum for a suggestion as to which inks would be different from the one you are using now.

Hi
Mine is loaded with Diamine Oxford Blue, and it can go weeks without use and it starts every time.
