So, I sent a few pens nibmeister for tuning. And I mentioned to make them wet pens (8/10) 'cause I wanted them to be slightly wetter than John Mottishaw's (7/10). 

 

After receiving I found that the pens are really wet. Couple are so wet that the feed(even underside) is always saturated and they write as if I just dipped the pens in ink.

 

I am thinking of tweaking it myself but I cannot find any info online except to make the pen drier by closing the tines. The tines are already pretty closed. So looking for some advice on making the feed a bit drier for Visconti Palladium, Sailor and Jowo nibs.

So, an update. nibmeister responded and he is saying there might be an air leak and I will send the pen back to him to fix.

That's honestly the best action to take. Let the pro dial it back some. It's easier to make a dry pen write wetter...but the other way around can be a challenge unless you know what you are doing.
