So, it happened. After thinking how lucky I was to purchase 12 FPs from different makers, I had not had one of the problems fellow pen addicts have been experiencing with their FPs.
A few days ago I uncapped my Faber-Castell Ambition. Ink, Diamine Grape, flowing off of the base of the nib. I was finally one of the chosen ones. I had an issue.
So, as I thought about what my braver fellow FP aficionados would do, ”
I heard,”push the nib in.” It seemed to work. I was proud of myself.
Now, I forgot to tell you that I carry my 12 FPs around in my briefcase to, and from, work. Lots of moving around and bumping on its way.
Next time I pulled the Ambition out of the pen case to add some grape to my latest doodle and uncapped it…grape, All over the nib base.
OK, I decided to reset it again when I noticed it also turned! So I pushed in and turned. It stopped turning and seemed to be in place.
Just took it out to use and it’s fixed. I am successful in my first attempt to correct an issue. Now, Maybe I can replace a cheap nib with a nice expensive gold one. If only I could afford it,
