Hi guys! I am a student and I recently bought a Platinum #3776 Century Bourgogne in EF from a reputable eBay seller. I received the pen and I spent 4 hours trying to get it to start and put down a consistent black line. I'm using Noodler's Heart of Darkness. I tried - flushing, cleaning, reinking, cartridge and converter, spreading the tines a little and repeated the whole process many times. I managed to get it to write properly for about an hour but then it started putting down inconsistent lines again. It mostly does this on the faster strokes or on an upstroke. When it is skipping, I pull the feed and nib out and I see that the feed is very dry and almost all of the ink is sitting on the top of the nib. You can see the problem right here: http://i.imgur.com/whKOcoY.jpg http://i.imgur.com/4KPujxl.jpg It used to be much worse than this but I still don't know how to make it write properly. TLDR: - Platinum 3776 EF, inconsistent lines with Noodler's Heart of Darkness, help?
