Bleeding ink left and right!

Ok, I like to mix things up a bit every once in a while and this time I chose calligraphy as my next challenge.

I had a fountain pen when I was younger but this time I got the Pilot Parallel Pen. THE pen of all pens! If I can’t slap some nice letters together with this pen then I should just give up and leave the world of calligraphy to those more competent.

Anyway, it came with two-what looked like good sized-re-fills. I thought they were going to last me for days. Four hours of practice later, I ran out of ink and have to get the re-fill. How is that possible? I realize the 2.4 mm nib had something to do with it but sweet Pen-O-Mighty, I could not believe how quickly the ink was gone.

This is the result of my practice:

Did anyone else have the same experience?
