some people say a pen for writing Asian characters should be this or that, dry and precise and what not. I have seen very beautiful Asian characters written with all sorts of pens, including ball point pens. And I have seen hideous Asian characters written with Sailor Naginata Togi and other higher range specialty nibs.
For me, a pen should not scratch, and ink must flow. The rest is a matter of taste and personal preference.
If ink flow is inhibited and compromised for the sake of controlling and ensuring line width, it won't please me and probably some people too.
Some Japanese pens have very finicky ink flow and nib contact with papers. And with iffy quality control or lack thereof, some pens just won't write. Then a nibmeister/technician is your best friend unless you return the pen to the vendor or send it back to the manufacturer.
of course, inks and papers can do wonders - and a change of writing habits.
OP hasn't spoken, I wonder if his problem is solved.
