Visconti Wall Street Limited Edition

Just wondering if other owners are experiencing worn grooves on the ink window from the cap threads. Obviously the cap isn't coming to rest dead centre on the barrel. The scratches are quite deep on one side of the ink window and I expect will become a weakness in time if the cap keeps biting into the ink window. I've known about this for a long while but just wonder if anyone else is experiencing this. I'd be slightly put off sending it in because I was without a Homo Sapiens for 5 months when that was returned to Italy.

I have one currently, although it is just about to leave me via the classifieds. This has not been a shared problem. Sorry!

Mine definitely has this problem. Doesn't bother me as much as the lack of alignment between cap/body/filler cap though... but I still love the pen!

Are the worn grooves quite deep? They are on mine, it's much more than simple scuffing that's common on Pelikan pens. I just wonder in time if the pen may snap at that point. I'm undecided whether to send it back to Visconti at the moment, although I expect that I probably will.

Mine does show a tiny bit of cuffing

I wouldn't say it's very deep, no, just scuffing. I get the same sort of scufffing on my M800 too, so it's not like it's exclusive to this pen.
