Pelikan Souveran M1000 Inkflow Problems

Hi guys. I love this pen. The nib is just awesome, especially the line variations, but unfortunately, it is giving me a headache. It is hardstarting. I have to shake the pen,, and after a page of writing, the ink flow would just stop, and i have to twist the filler knob a bit before it would start writing again. I flushed the pen with warm water and refilled it again with Edelatein Topaz ink but the problem would recur. I brought it to Scribe where Ever, the best calligrapher that i have seen in action, said that the tines were misaligned which maybe a result of my writing angle. After the nib was realigned and a few writing tips, it was behaving well only recur when i got home. Yesterday, the nib was replaced but again the problem recurred. I tried using a different ink, this time i used Jentle ink by sailor but it would still skip occasionally, although it just would require a few seconds of continues pressure on the nib against the paper and it would write again. This is just a one month old pen, and maybe i'm just on my 4th refill, and it is giving me problems. In fact it is the only pen in my collection that is behaving like this. Is there a breathing port somewhere that won't let air in causing a vacuum which prevents the ink from flowing? Or is there even such a thing? Any inputs would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I had a M1000 that came with a baby bottom. Maybe that's your problem. srebrown has a video about babybotttoms.

I'm a little concerned about your statement that you like the line variations produced by the M1000. Unless you are using a stub or italic nib, the M1000 does not, as far as I know, produce any line variation. Are you flexing the nibs to obtain line variation? I believe that flexing the nib in the M1000 will most likely damage the nib and may cause problems such as the one you are facing.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
