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
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!
i really like this pen-when the ink gets moving, i can write forever with it.
because of it's light weight, smooth barrel and crazy good value (so i don't
have to get too upset if it gets lost or stolen) i keep at it-but would REALLY
appreciate anyone's tips on getting that sweet spot primed up a little bit
easier. my desk is covered with scraps of paper with scrathes and
swirls-attempts to prime my little pen. ;)
