Hi all. Can I get some Opus 88 Demo users together please? I've had a long bad experience with these pens. Had 2 of them that leaked. You'd find the section full of ink and suddenly you have ink on your fingers in a meeting, etc. etc. At first I was looking for leaks inside the section, but I think it was something else. The feed, or the underside of the nib, would get overflow of ink, to the point where the feed collector is full. When capped this would fall into the cap and back into the section. So the main problem is overflow in the feed. I've had the pen replaced by Opus, which was nice of them, but the new pen does that, only much slower. Hold the pen downwards and, long as the rear knob is slightly open, the feed will very slowly begin to fill up. I want to ask if others are having, or can observe, similar phenomenon. I know the pen in your case may not actually drop the ink eventually, but if you can only use a light to look at the underside of your Jowo nib to see if the ink is controlled in the channel or filling up the underside, that would help me. I have a video I will add when I get a chance. Many thanks for anyone who gives me some input.
gammada posted a topic in LamyFor some odd reason whenever I load the new version of J. Herbin's Blue Ocean ink (the one with gold flakes), on my Al-Star pen, it starts bleeding the ink by the nib like crazy! I've already changed the nib from a medium to a fine to limit flow, but it just doesn't seem to work. Every time I open the cap, the feed has small drops of ink on the feed opening and also on the tip of the feed. The nib meantime, almost always registers nib creep. This is truly odd since this ink is supposed to clog pens, not to incur overflow! As fas as I recall, this behaviour was not present on the previous ink that I was using with this pen (my very own brown mix). I'd always flush my pen whenever changing inks, so I really don't know what it's going on. Any ideas? Emerald de Chivor and Stormy grey work grey on my other Al-Star, Safari pens, thou.
