Konrad Leaking To The Cap

Hi all!

After reading a lot of review about this Noodler's Konrad, I finally get one recently.

 

I love writing (and fixing) with this pen. But i notice the pen is leaking ink to the cap when I don't use it. A full filled pen would only leave one drop of ink overnight, although it doesn't leak any when I'm writing. I found this is a quite common issue with this pen but I couldn't fix it after heat-setting, tuning and resembling the pen. I wonder is it because there is a space between the nib and grip section (see below). If so, how can it be fixed?

 

Thank you!

I'm not sure it can be fixed. Mine does the same thing.

Just a quick update: I have got reply from Gouletpens, said that the space is normal. So I won't worry it too much.

 

However, the leaking is not solve after a couple more heat setting. What i can do now is just keeping the pen upwards when I finish writing.
