BASIC TUTORIALS: How to flare your K-71 nib
So I get an email from Chuy in Escondido. He tells me that his homie Johnny said that he needed to flair his nib to make it drip. Chuy didn't know what that meant, but he also didn't want to look like a toy in front of his boy. Knowing that we helped him before he emailed us for a little explanation.
