Among all new pens, ignoring marketing b.s. (example MBs) and ignoring heavily ornamented pens (diamond encrusted, intricately decorated: Dunhill-Namiki Sakura Rose), which pens do you think really demonstrate a technical achievement in pen technology?
I have used and enjoyed Pilot Murex stainless steel pens, all with a fine nib since the early 1970s, buying several at later dates, including one inscribed H804. With three or four of them, I found a consistent problem. The pen skips, particularly with Waterman's Green or Brown inks as well as those from different manufacturers, notably on Steno pad paper, but on other types of paper as well. Taking them to my local pen store where the nib prongs were separated slightly to improve flow did little to solve the problem, save changing the line from fine to medium. This is not a difficulty I found with earlier models of the same pen. Have any other of my fellow pen lovers had similar problems? If so, how did you solve the difficulty? Thank you for your help.
