Ok, so I finally wrote with my Ritma with the Omniflex nib. I love the way it writes and the way it feels in my hands. The problem is… it skips so much. I’m using it with the converter inked in Monteverde Moonstone. When it writes, it write so beautifully. But it skips every couple words. Sometimes every few words. I have to stop, shake it hard a few times. And if that doesn’t work I have took adjust the converter twisting it until there’s no air in it and the ink is right at the opening. I’m suuuuper bummed about this. I’m not sure why I’m having this problem. I saw a YouTube review where the reviewer said they’re non kept drying out really fast. Like, it would dry out within 10-20 seconds of not writing. they literally showed it doing it multiple times in the video. Is that what’s happening to mine? I’d really appreciate it if someone from Truphae can email me and maybe give me some tips on what I can do to prevent this. Because this pen has SO much potential. Btw, this pen’s turquoise color is stunning! And I love the magnetic cap. Everything about it is beautiful. I just need it to write consistently :(
I received this pen as part of my monthly subscription along with the MonteVerde Moonstone Ink. It has the Omniflex Nib and I couldn't be more excited! This is my first flex nib and I've been wanting to try one! This pen has a nice weight to it. Not too heavy and not too light. It feels great in my hand. I absolute love the magnetic close cap. The sound "snap" it makes is very satisfying. It writes beautifully and I love that I can create different sized strokes with just a little bit of pressure. This was my first monthly subscription box and it's a huge win! I can't wait to see what they pick out for next month. It's such a fun surprise every month! Highly recommend!
For my first two subscription boxes, I received this pen. One with their calligraphic nib and the other with a standard medium nib. Both are beautiful pens and they hold up very well. I use them constantly and my only complaint is that my traditional nib scratches at my papers and sometimes puts a hole in them while writing (I write very lightly) basic information. For the calligraphy nibbed pen, my only issue is when the refillable cartridge leaks after refilling with fresh ink. It stops after writing with it for a while but it is definitely not an ink and go pen but rather an ink write a journal entry then go pen. I love these two pens if not for that slight issue with both.
I just received this pen as part of my subscription and I really love it. It is quite heavy (which I prefer) and the snap cap is awesome. The magnetic cap has a lovely "pop" and "click" when you take it on and off. The pen comes with a nice case, two cartridges and a converter. When filling the pen, it was quite easy and not messy (there is a bit of a lip so it doesn't seem to end up with ink all over the barrel if you dip too far). Fairly smooth writing on smooth paper and nice flow.
