Bought the pen, then...

Bought the pen, then read the review. Did have the initial inkflow problem, but have experienced this before with steel nibs, so decided to 'run it in'. This meant a couple of minutes trying to write on rough paper. No problems with inkflow thereafter, and writes well.

However, decided that a converter was required because of the cost of Zebra cartridges and no substitute cartridges that fitted. Found that a Parker (deluxe version) converter did the job. The cost of these is well above the pen, but a better option than cartridges.

Reasonable value for the price. The pen cost v cartridge cost equation doesn't cut it though.

I cannot get this fountain pen to work--very skippy and I have to constantly open it and dip the nib in the ink of the cartridge. Disappointing.

Yes, I too experienced the mysterious end to the initially promising ink flow. I too figured I had wasted the $3 i spent on this pen. But then i figured out a little trick -- writing with the nib upside down always worked and seemed to get the pen flowing normally after a minute or so. My reward for sticking with this little guy is that it now writes perfectly immediately, even if it's been sitting unused for days.

@ farmerr: Thank you very much for your tip (Parker Deluxe converter). First when I inserted the cartridge I had the inkflow problem. I rinsed the pen with water - and the problem continued. There come some ink and then an abrupt failure during operation and so on. Then I inserted the converter, rinsed the feed completely with ink, inserted the cartridge again and since then the inkflow problem is gone. Now it's a nice little (student) pen.

i wrote a review yesterday and asked a question-which i have answered for myself! if you are a fountain pen user you may have tried to run a piece of thin paper between the nib and the part that's under it (?) to clear it. you also probably know that the paper fibers can get jammed up in there and cause more problems.
while ordering field notes memo books (expedition), which are made with waterproof paper, i realized that i have on hand the same thing that i use for outside work. by gently slipping a corner or clean edge under the nib and sliding it across i can get ink flow in about a second! no more scratching on scraps or bad words because my pen won't work. i keep it under my keyboard so i can just prime up my pen anytime-very handy and easy.
if you don't happen to have waterproof paper hanging around you might try a slip of tyvec-like fedex and other mail pouches are made of.
i hope this helps anyone who has experienced the frustration of their favorite pen behaving badly. blessings!
