Kaweco Double broad

How long does it take for the Kaweco fountain pens to ink the first time? I inserted the cartridge that goes with it but its not writing :( The ink in the cartridge is not dry. I have shaken the pen and everything and no ink is coming out. Im leaving it pointed down waiting for the ink. I'm using a double broad nib.

You can try to squeeze the cartridge to prime the feed. Or a quick dip in water may help get it flowing. If not it may need a good soaking and cleaning. 

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

It will work.... not to worry.  I know what you're going through.  The worst experience I've had is with the Opus 88 pens.  I really would think I got myself a lemon, but then it would start writing and writing beautifully.  I generally prefer filling pens via the nib feed for this very reason.  The nib/feed is primed as part of the filling process.

This could be due to residues from the manufacturing. You could try rinsing the section with lukewarm water with a drop of dishwashing detergent. If you have a converter or an empty cartridge at hand, you could flush with that solution to speed up the cleaning process.

When I got my Kaweco Sport, I put in the cartridge that came with it, and though the pen wrote right away, it was very dry and scratchy and uneven, lots of hard starts. At first I blamed the pen abut now I’m thinking it was the fault of the cartridge....because when I took it out and put in a JHerbin Perle Noire cartridge, it immediately wrote beautifully.
