I purchased the Olive green version....I do like the coloring of the resin, it looks and feels really good.

 

BUT the threads in the barrel that thread onto the nib section, and the threads on the outside of the barrel that thread to the cap are not very smooth.

 

Particularly the threads on the outside of the barrel that thread into the cap are not smooth at all.

 

I put a little silicone grease on the threads and it really didn't help a whole lot.

 

Can any other owner comment on their threads?

 

I am contemplating a return...

 

Any input would be appreciated.

 

Thanks


Sorry to hear that. The threads on mine are smooth. 

I chose my user name years ago - I have no links to BBS pens (other than owning one!)

I'm considering getting this pen, so all of this information is very useful.  Anybody else with any experience with this pen?

 

Would love to hear from you -

Using right now:

Moonman F9 "F" nib running Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses

Wancher Sekai Tsugaru Urushi - Kuro-age "F" nib running Pelikan Olivine

Narwhal Schuykill "F" nib running Wahl-Eversharp Everberry

I should clarify my earlier comment: the threads themselves are smooth, not rough in any way, but there are some points of roughness or tightness when screwing the cap on and off. Not that I do, but I can certainly hold the pen by the threads without any discomfort.

 

Anyway, I'm really pleased with the pen. It's the right weight and size for me, and once I've sent it off to be ground to italic it will be perfect.

I didn't ink mine up because of the threads...I liked everything else about the Pen.  But for $200++ I did not find the thread issue acceptable.

 

I am returning mine...the vendor indicated they had another customer with a similar thread issue.

 

May try one again in a few months...

To whom it may concern: Just in case you thought that using fine micromesh/sand paper to sand/smooth out the sharp threads might help, DON’T DO IT! It doesn’t work. Ask me how I found out (a long long time ago)😀.
