Hello all, I'm fairly new to the fountain pen world as well as this amazing forum but wow what a place. Earlier today, I received a new Jinhao X750 with a medium nib and I am having some issues with the amount of ink it leaves on the paper. I partially filled the converter with Noodler's Heart of Darkness ink and the pen did fine for about 10 lines but then all of the sudden, it started leaving intermittent drops of ink on the paper. At first, I thought this was perhaps just an anomaly but after the 4th droplet, I figured I must be doing something wrong. It does seem like the Jinhao M-nib writes a bit heaver than other M-nib'd pens I have (Lamy for instance) but this is beyond just a heavier line. Any suggestions for this newbie?
marcelo posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopHi FPNers! I need your help. The trim and end of the body opposite to the cap of my Waterman Carene FP became tainted with small inkblots. I tried to clean them with a humid smooth cloth, but did not work. Do you know how to clean them causing no harm to beautiful finish of the pen? I look forward to reading from you. Marcelo
