  1. HI, I'm new to the network having a revived interest in fountain pens over lockdown, resurrecting some old pens and adding a few (too many!) new ones... lots of fun!! I have some pretty dry inks and some F and EF nibs, and after research I'm wondering if getting some White Lightning Ink Additive might help the pens write a bit wetter. However, I cant seem to find a UK retailer that stocks the product and paying almost $40 for shipping seems a bit OTT... Does anyone know of a retailer that stocks it in the UK or Europe? Thanks, Joe
  2. Hello, i bought two PELIKAN M805S both with a fine nib on ama... uk and ama...es within a week. The black one was in my mailbox less than an hour ago. One pen, the blue stripped is pretty good, maybe a bit too wet with some sailor inks. That is a normal behaviour with a Pelikan nib. The other pen, the black one is so dry and unwilling that i have decided to send it back to ama...uk for a refund. Of course i flushed carefully the black pen, etc...before inking it. Furthermore Sailor inks are very wet inks as can be seen on the photo, at least with the blue stripped one. Return cost is from my p
  3. Kaweco Al sport stonewashed EF nib My first review here so please be gentle. I always liked fountain pens and I have been using mine Sheaffer VFM for years. And last summer I was looking at it and decided that my Sheaffer is full of scratches and the pen was loosing bit of posses, so I have decided to upgrade to my first pen to something else. After long lurk around I have found an ideal pen for my needs of note taking which combined durable metal body, portability and options of nibs. The price was bit steeper roughly 76 USD with tax. The pen came in a lovely tin that can serve as a pen
  4. I have a black Aurora Talentum that I really like. However it dries up on me as I am writing with it, and it does not even matter how full the cartridge is.... the line just goes dry and dry until ink stops coming out. I then take off the barrel, give few taps with the index finger's nail and it starts to write again. How do I solve this issue, it is a beautiful pen and I really like how it looks and writes just after the tapping. But I cannot use it at work anymore as I have to keep doing the routine regularly. Any help appreciated!!!
  5. I recently sent my broad Diamond 580AL to TWSBI because it was skipping a lot of would not write unless I laid down quite a bit of pressure. Since it was sent back, the problem persists. Anyone have a recommendation for a good nibmeister to send my pen to? I had also sent in my fine Vac 700, which I now regret because I put quite a bit of work into it to get it to write well. I thought it could be tweaked to write wetter, but it came back drier and scratchier than before. But I'll just swap it out for my Goulet 1.5mm, which writes a lot better.
  6. I was just on a two week vacation where I wouldn't do much writing, but would need a pen for the occasional form, etc. I took a recently acquired Lamy 2000 and the first couple of days were fine. I should note that I did use this pen for a couple of days before I left and it wrote fine. I did have the pen carried in a shirt pocket daily and after about a week, I had to make a note and found the nib to be dry even though that I could see ink in the ink window. I used the piston to expel a drop of ink and made the note. My thought was that maybe the feed was starved due to the ink not touching
