The yellow TWSBI arrived day before yesterday after eleven days in transit from one post office to another just 20km apart. It's my tenth TWSBI. It's also my last, because it came out of the box with a horrible, scratchy nib and it's not going to be fixed.
I can't see anything obvious with the loupe and being a new pen I expected the retailer would have me covered. They suggested I buy micromesh, from another seller that would take a couple of weeks to get here, at my cost. Or they would send a spare nib for me to fit, but couldn't guarantee the pen would be perfect. If I wanted better than that I had to contact TWSBI myself.
This is the reply I got from TWSBI overnight:
"Jowo makes our nibs and they havve their own tolerance levels for each nib size Some of the EF nibs just feel scratchier than others because it falls in their "tolerance range"What is your shipping address? I can have the factory send you a spare EF nib. You just need to pay for shipping when they email you."
