Kaweco double broad authenticity check

I was wondering if I could see your kaweco double broad nibs? I’m a little worried that I got a fake one 😕 my double broad has deeper etching and slightly wider design than that of my EF (which came from germany). Also, the etching it slight bronzed. Doesnt show in picture but noticeable when observed keenly in person. Also, it took me 30 mins for it to write. Then I have to squeeze the catridge everytime I want to use it. Never had a problem with my other kawecos.

I do not have a double broad Kaweco nib and cannot guess why it looks different from your others, but for a Kaweco nib to be reluctant to write at first seems not uncommon.  Search this site for "kaweco nib problem," both for reassurance that your experience is not especially rare and for advice on improving the writing experience.

 

I have only one Kaweco pen, and the nib was certainly very dry at first.  When I inserted a new cartridge, I would leave the pen nib down for several hours before trying to write with it.  Eventually I stopped using cartridges and started filling it with an eyedropper.  This move seemed to help the flow.  If your pen has a plastic barrel, you might try to do likewise.

Omg! Thank you! Ours look the same! I guess they make the double broad a little different than the extra fine. I’m relieved now. Thank you for taking time.
