Why doesn’t my brand new fountain pen work?

It is a common misconception that new fountain pens don’t encounter any problems, but this isn’t true. If the pen hasn’t been assembled properly, it may develop problems while writing. 

Similarly, using the wrong ink can prevent the pen from working properly but there is nothing to worry about because there are plenty of ways to prevent such problems. The easiest technique is flushing the nib with clean water to remove foreign particles stuck within the nib. 

You should also check the cartridge to see if the plastic seal has been broken properly. This will ensure that the ink flows smoothly from the cartridge to the nib while another way of fixing the fountain pen is by priming it. Simply hold the pen and ensure that the nib faces downward for around 10 to 60 minutes, which will help the ink flow through the cartridge to the nib.
