Been using FPs for I guess about 7-8 years now. I'm always a little worried when I have a bottled open and extra careful. I've read some of your horror stories, but hadn't had one, until today.
At my desk at work, about 10 minutes before heading down to a meeting. Decide to fill the M800 from the Edelstein Sapphire bottle. Filled the pen as usual. Knocked a couple drips off the end of the nib. Normally at this point I would expel two drops, wipe it off, and be good to go.
Then I thought to other instructions I'd read and for some reason at that moment it seemed like a good idea to tip the pen nib up and pull the plunger back in to pull the ink from the soaked feed into the reservoir.
In my haste I neglected to realize that I was turning the plunger screw the wrong way, and quickly expelled pretty much all of the ink over my hands and desk.
The downside? This is an M800 with a huge reservoir.
The upside? It wasn't an M1000.
