Hi all. Hope I didn't mess something up! The background: I bought a Bulow x750 with the upgraded EF nib and 3 Chesterfield ink samples. First two inks were great. So today I put he obsidian black in the pen and now it is a very hard starter and skips a LOT. First 2 times I inked up the pen I didn't take the converter out, as the bottles were big enough to fit the nib in. This is a smaller bottle so I pulled out the converter to fill it. I cleaned the nib and section with warm running water and blew through the nib and section and everything seemed ok. Let it sit to dry for an hour, cleaned (drop of dish soap several times, clean water several times) and filled the converter and let it sit nib down 15 minutes to get some ink in the feed. Now its worse than the $4 pen I gave my daughter! SO...Did I break something (a seal maybe) when I pulled the converter out? Is it maybe just the ink? Did I mess up by blowing water through the nib? Anything else I can/should check? Both the other inks I have ran through the pen were great (Smoked Topaz and Emerald). I could leave the pen uncapped for 10 minutes, come back and just start writing again. Now if I look up for 30 seconds I have to draw 10-15 lines on the top of the paper to get going again. I'm no expert on pens or ink, but I do know I'd rather throw out the ink than the pen! I really like my pen...the way it used to write! Thank you for any help you can give a poor newbie!
