Burgundy at Heart

Wherein my Teak Montegrappa Heartwood Fortuna (Fine) is paired with Monteverde Napa Burgundy.

On my Teak Montegrappa Heartwood Fortuna (Fine) joined its comrades when it was filled with Monteverde Napa Burgundy. I refilled it once; the last refill was on . The pen was in use for one month and was emptied and cleaned on , saying good-bye to its fellows.

Thoughts Before Filling

I wanted to try a more lubricated ink in this pen to see if I had a better experience. I still anticipate getting this nib reground to an italic, but I want to make sure before I do.

Thoughts After Cleaning the Pen

I still had trouble getting the ink to flow through the pen without needing to be primed while writing. I’m going to give it a thorough clean in case there are still some oils on the feed from manufacturing.
