Lamy Safari Charcoal Query

Hello guys. I need some suggestions regarding my Lamy Safari Charcoal. I am attaching three pictures. The nib as seen in the picture has developed some sort of stain near the slit of the nib. I have tried soaking the nib in water for a couple of hours as well as washing it some liquid handwash. Nothing seems to remove the stain mark. Is it because of the ink I am using?

Next to the cartridge converter, if you zoom and observe carefully you will be able to see that some little amount of ink is trapped between the contact of the piston edge and the body of the converter. I have disassembled the converter, applied some silicone grease but still, ink gets trapped. It started from after one month of using the converter after the cartridge emptied.( I bought the safari around August last year). How to prevent this?

It looks like you've had some nib creep from the ink you are using. This might come clean if you use a Sunshine cloth or something similar, to clean the slit of the nib. Please be careful to not clean off the Lamy printing and nib tip width though.

 

Some of my Lamy converters have occasionally had ink go past the piston seal edge. I completely dunk them in some warm water, pump several times to get them clean, then shake the watery remains out of both ends.

The converter can be dismantled completely to get it clean. Tutorials are found online.

The seal on the converter may not be making complete contact. As far as the nib goes, what ink are you using in it?
