Ink & Pen Notes: Nexus Minimal with Medium Nib and Pelikan Edelstein Tanzanite

Namisu Nexux Minimal fine nib with Pelikan Edelstein Sapphire ink cartridgeI reviewed the Nexus Minimal fountain pen back in May so I won’t repeat what I wrote about the writing experience. The pen skips so I kept it inked at the time, planning to smooth the nib. Instead I wrote it dry. Well actually, there was a little writing and a lot of evaporation.

While I did use the pen occasionally and didn’t check the ink level I’m convinced there was significant evaporation as there was close to half a cartridge left when I did the review.

I won’t be re-inking the Nexus Minimal fountain pen until I’m ready to smooth the nib.

  1. Interesting that your nib was skippy and the pen suffers from evaporation Ray. I’ve got the same pen but with the fine titanium nib. It’s been inked and sitting on my desk for a month or so with no obvious evaporation issues. The nib was great out of the box too, but then it’s not fair to compare the two as they are different. I do have a second (I got the twin pack) which has a steel nib but I’m yet to use it so I may find similar issues to you.
