  1. What could be wrong with (or dirty or clogging) a nib? I have had two Preppies and one "disposable" Zebra with what I thought was a similar problem. I see plenty of ink and if I wipe the sides or back vent hole with a damp paper towel, ink immediately wicks out. But when I wrote, nothing came out. With the Zebra, I pulled the nib out and noticed with some magnifier help that there seem to be a teenie bit of dried ink between the tines. I scrubbed it with a cotton swab with some rubbing alcohol and sure enough some ink-color staining on the swab. I "deform" the nib a little bit to expose the inner-edges to the alcohol. I put the Zebra back together, and all is fine. I did the same with a Preppy, but it's still not writing. I recall now this is the same problem I encountered about 8 years ago and is why I gave away my Preppys. However, I want to try again. I should note that this is clogging on BayStateBlue. The cloggy Preppy is better with the included cartridge. The other non-clogging Preppy is filled with Monteverde. These Preppys are all newer models, not the ones with the painted colors on the nib-backs. (Too bad, they are cute.) Or maybe BSB is like any drier ink and I should "do something" to the space between tines? Or "deform" it a bit to be farther away from the black part? Thanks for any tips! Btw, I refilled a "disposable" blue Zebra with BSBlue and it writes terrifically -- thin lines, thinner than the Preppy 03 but maybe a little wider line than the Preppy 02. No hard starts and good cap-off time. Is anybody using Preppy+BSBlue?

    Baystate Blue Not So Blue

    Hey guys I am relatively new to this forums, I bought 2 samples of baystate blue from goulet pens. just need your input on it because I inked it up on my nemosine pen with a goulet M nib and the ink looks purple to me. for example like diamine majestic purple. I am using cheap paper but I tried it on good quality paper as well and I get the same results. I get a washed out purple with no saturation. Everyone talks about how bright this ink is but I sadly dont see it. Do you think I got a "bad" sample for some reason, I love goulet pens so I dont think they would make any mistakes. I tried samples a few years back and had the same problem. Or do you think I need the full bottle for somehow to get the full effect? Another thing, I found 2 reviews here on BSB first one is by Mafia Geek and that is how my ink looks like. In his review he says it is a bright blue but to me that looks like a purple color. Next review I found by Bubba Dog and this is how BSB should look like. this to me a in your face blue that I love but I dont know how these 2 users have such different outcomes in terms of color. They both used quality paper, Does the Nib size matter? thats the only thing I could think of. Bubba dog mentions he used a medium nib and I used a M nib too. ( btw I dont mean to undermine any reviewers or their hard work. I just wanted to know why the difference in color. I didnt mean any offense in anyway) Please help me
