Help Me About My First Mb 146 Fp

This is my first MB fontain pen. I bought it as second hand item from Ebay.

It is quite new but I have a nib creep problem. While writing a droplet of ink comes up the surface of the nib and immadiately whicked back into the feed living a stain behind. I tried it twice with both MB Black and with Aurora Black ink. It happens more with MB ink when compared with Aurora Black. I flushed and cleaned the pen before inking.

I called MB Service in Turkey about the problem before seeing the pen we can't say anything exactly they said.

Except these what can I do what can the reason for it? Kind regards.

used same inks with my Pelikan m400 and there is no problem.

 

Also very normal. It's not a problem. Different nibs behave differently.

There is no issue.

 

Some nibs exhibit nib creep regardless of make or model. I have Pelikans that have nib creep and Pelikans that don't.

 

Nib creep depends on the specific nib and often specific ink.

May be damage creating a channel for ink to get to the surface of nib. None of my pens have this. I had a used Omas that did ths, and i sold it with full disclosure.

I have had multiple pens "creap" as described (MB, Omas, Waterman). Many sources (+1 to Jar) reports this as normal.

 

Nathan Tardiff of Noodler's fame even teases about the concept in his "creaper" line of pens. See his videos for further confirmation.

"Ahh, thanks?"
