I have two Estie desk sets. On both of them, the pens are always inked and ready to go. One of them however the pen is often hard to start without a bit of coaxing. I typically have to wet a tissue and wipe down the nib to get it going. The other starts up just fine. Even after a week of non-use.
So what is going on here? Is there some sort of seal inside that prevents the nib from drying out? I have never cleaned the inside as I am not sure how to do this.
