I noticed that after the initial dip into my sumi ink that the nib was a little gunky, so I swirled it in some water
I was looking for a cheap fountain pen with interchangeable italic nibs for a friend who recently got into fountain pens when I saw a dip pen set with a nib that looks exactly like the Blue Pumpkin.
