CLEANING YOUR FOUNTAIN PEN

CLEANING YOUR FOUNTAIN PEN

To ensure that your fountain pen functions in ideal conditions, you are recommended to clean it approximately once every three months, particularly in the following cases:

  • if the ink has dried out after a period of not being used,
  • if the color of the ink needs to be changed,
  • if the ink-flow is irregular.

To clean the nib block:

  • remove the cartridge from the pen;
  • clean the pen in clear water and dry it carefully.
  • For fountain pens equipped with a converter, insert the converter full of cold water and flush the water through the ink-feed. Continue until the water is clear. Clean the external parts of the fountain pen using a soft, dry cloth. Do not use any other product.
