Hello, first post ever and unfortunately it's a problem with the new Pelikan M1000 I purchased. I've had it for a day now and notice a lot of bad starts, general skipping on horizontal strokes, and no ink between the tines (or on the paper!) for periods of up to 30 seconds if I make a thick line. Upon closer inspection, it looks like there's a gap between the nib and feed, but I'm not sure if this is normal and I just have to keep using the pen for a while for improvements. Am I crazy? Or should I ask Pelikan for a replacement nib?
I recently became the proud owner of a LE pen made by Visconti. However, I was dismayed that I got one of the (seemingly innumerable) pens that slipped passed their QC. I have a gap between the barrel and section - not large, not small - just big enough to be a visual blot on the landscape. You know the deal; a small imperfection that, once noticed, can never be forgotten. My question is: is there a filling material I could apply to fill in the space? Should I take it to a jeweler and see what they say? Should I send it back to Visconti and hope I get it back in the next year? Naturally I recognize it's a small thing but I paid a fair amount of doubloons for this thing, confound it! Any advice and info would be appreciated wholeheartedly. F
