Pilot Metropolitan <M> Hard Starting (Sometimes), Not Writing Downstrokes/upstrokes Or Dots Properly
Rotring600user posted a topic in Of Nibs & TinesI've added a comparison with my fine nib Metro which works and writes beautifully. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
I just got my new Pilot Metropolitan with a medium nib in the mail. I opened it up, cleaned it thoroughly, and inked it up with Noodlers Habanero. I immediately noticed when writing with it that on the down stroke it writes perfectly fine but on the up-stroke, no ink at all comes out. Please help! Any suggestions on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated! (I also cleaned it again just to make sure there were no fibers hanging around in the nib, but that didn't seem to help.)
