  1. Hi! I'm a new member of the Fountain Pen Network! Nice to meet you all! Just found out that the Sonnet my mom gave me is a First Generation one, a Laque Firedance. But for some reason I have to give extra pressure for it to write without skipping, unlike other pens I own, which write with their own weight. Could it be Baby's Bottom? If so, would they fix it for me at a Parker Store? Thanks and have a great day FPN!

    Baby's Bottom

    Is baby's bottom common in Montblancs? My 149 from 1990 has it but it writes flawlessly. I didn't even know it had BB until I was looking at the nib with a loupe days after I got it just to look at the nib up close.
  3. I've seen with one of my wing sung 3008 pens that there's always hard starts on cheaper paper. If i press hard on the nib, the flow resumes but is a bit too wet. It does not write with it's own weight. This led me to think it had baby's bottom since the tines appeared aligned. However, when I use Tomoe River paper, it writes the first time every time. It also delivers a wet line, not a faint one. So is it a feed issue? I've never had this kind of a problem before. There's no issues with the feed keeping up with Tomoe River. I'm willing to experiment on this pen as well and would love any advice!

    Problem With An Elite 95S

    I just purchased an Pilot E95s (Elite) from Japan. Overall, I really like the pen. Flow is good and it is super smooth. It always starts right up, however, it will seem to hard start in the middle of a sentence. I'll write a few lines, and then, in mid-sentence, the first part of a letter (e.g. the upstroke to start a "w") will skip, and the rest of the letter will be fine. It almost immediately flows again, but I can see the impression on the page left from the nib where it skipped. The skips are only half a centimeter long and the flow resumes quickly. Is this a sweet spot issue, or a nib problem? Ink is Pilot Iroshizuku Syo-Ro.
  5. Hello, I have a Kaweco Sport with a double-broad nib. When I first use the pen it doesn't start at all and I have to give it a couple taps or scribble a bit to get the ink going, but after that it works fine until I stop writing for a bit. I hear a lot about baby's bottom but I've never experienced it personally, so I don't know whether this is the case with my pen or not. The tines are wider apart than other Kaweco nibs I've used, including another double-broad, and there's a thin taper going from the bottom to the top of the tipping. I'm afraid the photo I've posted is the best I could manage. So, I'd like to ask (1) whether it's possible to tell from my description and the photo if this is a baby's bottom problem, and (2) would it be advisable to correct this myself with an abrasive? If it matters, the ink I currently am using with it is J. Herbin Orange Indien.
