New Pelikan Pickiness: M 1000 Medium Nib Almost Perfect, But...

Spoiled brat alert: my new M1000, medium nib provides all these delightments...thick, nicely balanced solid heft for my big, thick-fingered hand...a soft yet responsive slightly springy nib...that lays down a precise, silken, wet line. Bliss.

 

BUT, 5% of the time, it skips for just a stroke or two, both up and down. This happens mostly on the slickest paper surfaces (Clarefontaine, Rhodia Premium, Maruman Mnemosyne) but also on Black 'n Red, Exacompta FAF, and even TWSBI notebooks. Pelikan Blue-Black ink is most prone to cause this skippage, then Noodler's BP Black, then Diamine Green-Black.

 

I've flushed, I've flossed, and I've fussed over every nook and Souverän cranny...any insights from the wise heads on FPN...? It's like meeting a new lover who is SO close to your ideal that you spend all your time and energy obsessing about how to 'get there'... (That's the spoiled brat part...)

When my Sheaffer Legacy skipped intermittently, I tried the Iroshizuku ink. I have a whole bunch of them & I tried the fuyu-gaki. Skipping was resolved completely. None at all. If that had not worked, I had planned to send it to Mike Masuyama for a tune up.

Never had a single mishaps with any of my pel m1000s with any ink

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time
