  I honestly wanted to..., January 26, 2013
By kmc...
I honestly wanted to love this pen. But I had a strange feeling about it when I got it because I know that fountain pens can get a little fussy sometimes.

And it turns out that's the case with this one. The pen itself is great, but I have no clue as to what is going wrong because I am geting terribly inconsistent inkflow out of it. I even made sure to read up and follow the directions posted on how to install the ink cartridge properly (I know it's not rocket science, but I still wanted to make sure I was doing it right). After letting the pen sit for awhile to let the ink seep in, I got to writing and immediately I noticed that the ink flow was terribly inconsistent and that's even when I flexed the nib.

I then reached out to jetpens for some advice and they said that sometimes there can be residue left from the manufacturing process (which is a valid point) and they pointed me to the tutorial in how to clean a fountain pen. After following the directions to a "T", I'm still getting the same results.....inconsistent ink-flow.

At the end of the day, I have to think I just got a bad pen and I look at it as an isolated incident. So I'm sending this back and getting a finer nib. It's just such a hassle to find out this way
