Important note about
OUR SERVICE: Every nib that ships
from His Nibs is closely examined under high magnification and
tuned or adjusted if needed. About 85% of modern nibs need some adjustment
out-of-the-box from the manufacturer
for an optimal writing experience. Most commonly, the tines of the nib are
misaligned -- which would cause
scratchiness at the minimum; the slit between the tines is partially or
fully closed -- which would starve the nib of ink and
at best cause skipping; or the slit between the tines is too wide --
which will either again cause skipping, or conversely,
flooding. There are other factors -- such as separation of the nib
from the feed -- that are inspected and repaired
before any pen leaves the Palace.
The only 100% guarantee of course
comes when the pen is
actually filled with ink and written with for the first time, but
our pre-shipping inspections and tunings have eliminated 99.99999 (my finger is
getting tired) of the frustrations that a
customer experiences when first using a new fountain pen. Although this can be
time-consuming on occasion, it affords
our customers a much more pleasant experience when receiving a fountain pen from
His Nibs -- and saves us the
frustration of dealing with returns!
