  1. I just received my Visconti Homo Sapien Silver with Fine Nib. I filled the brand new FP with Pelikan Edelstein Onyx black ink and did so with the Visconti Travel Ink Well. From other posts on FPN, I had surmised that Visconti FPs tend to run wet. So I ordered it in Fine hoping to achieve medium nib result of a Pilot. This is my 3rd fountain pen and only have 2 other pens to compare with Pilot Namiki Vanishing Point in Fine Pilot Metropolitan Medium Nib From what I can tell, the Visconti HS fine nib writes finer than the pilot VP fine. Did I receive a faulty pen? Is it the ink? I've in
  2. Hi, everyone! This is my first post in the forum. Three days ago I bought a Pelikan M200 from the only Pelikan dealer in my country. As with every pen I purchase I roughly inspected the tines under a loupe to see if they are aligned. I didn't see any problems so I bought the pen. When I got home however, eager to try it out, I inked it without flushing it first. The pen had a very hard time starting and when it did, it skipped a lot. I immediately thought it was factory oil residue left from the manufacturing process so I flushed it with dish soap and water. Inked it up again and it started a

    Reform Pen Leaking

    Hi everyone, About a week ago I found an abandoned fountain pen in my drawer. I decided I'll try and make it work, since it always had a problem which I could never fix. The problem is that the ink seems to be leaking, but I don't know where from. I tried cleaning it, I soaked it the entire day in lukewarm water to clean its system from ink, then I filled a cartridge with water to test if it leaks. The water obviously has different characteristics than ink, so it seemed not to leak then (or I didn't notice it, since it's water). After that I put a usual ink cartridge in it to see if it
  4. Has anyone ever bought ink directly from Diamine at their website (http://diamineinks.co.uk)? How was your experience? I've placed an order there a week ago and didn't get any feedback whatsoever. Last friday I sent them an email, forwarding the payment receipt and asking what's going on with my order and a couple of days later still no feedback. Tomorrow I'm calling their offices, which is a pain and should be avoided. Does anyone have experience buying directly from them?
  5. from iampeth.com website, i found that i need to align the tip of my nib with the axis of the holder, ( sounds reasonable enough ) However, the nib is ALREADY inserted as far as it will go. Yet it protrudes over the axis. My Nikko nib is also the same situation... I think its Speedball design problem. What do you think ? http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3744/11081707705_e0d39eb977_c.jpg
  6. Hi, everyone! I am new to both - fountain pens and this forum. Sorry, if this has already been discussed, but I haven't found it on the forum. I recently bought my first fountain pen - a Montblanc Jonathan Swift with medium nib with Montblanc toffee brown ink. I was looking for a decent notebook which would be used both - for office notes and my personal ones. Moleskine seemed to be the perfect choice due to it's design and creamy paper colour. It turned out to be a disaster as I can use only one side of the notebook due to severe bleed-through of the ink. Please see the pic. http://s1
