I have a waterman hemisphere Stardust gold fountain pen with a med. nib . with skipping problems. Answered

As I write the pen will stop mid word, and sometimes it doesn't start flowing without a good deal of pressure and lots of scribbling. It was that way when I opened the box. Any tips?

Return it as faulty.

Wash out the ink reservoir with alcohol if you think there may be a blockage

Use Watermans ink or an equally good quality ink, try not to use old ink as it can gather a sediment and clumps in the ink is not use for a long time.

All of the above at your own risk of course.
