I was cruising along yesterday writing with a blue Uni-Ball Signo DX 0.38mm when I decided to switch over to black ink. I reached for the hacked Pilot G-2 with a Mont-Blanc refill that I keep on my desk at work, but no ink was coming out of the tip. Dry as the Sahara. I scribbled around with it for a while and got a partial ink flow, but nothing like it should be. This made me wonder what the best way was to get an ink cartridge to flow again? I've heard of taking a match to it, or maybe wetting it a little and scribbling - do you have any secrets to resurrect a pen that you know still has life left?
There are some good suggestions on this wikiHow page: How to restart a dry ballpoint pen. I forgot about trying to write on an eraser. Maybe that is my next move.
