Always like brand new – care of fine writing instruments

Whether lovingly written letters or short notes – writing by hand is a special feeling. Especially with high-quality fountain pens, it becomes a unique pleasure. In order to enjoy this extraordinary writing experience for many years, the personal writing instrument requires regular care.

Cleaning the fountain pen ensures that it glides smoothly over the paper and produces a consistent typeface. It is important to maintain both the nib and the ink flow system. Over time, ink residue, dust, paper fibers and other contaminants accumulate in the nib. To avoid this, the first step in cleaning is to unscrew the handle and remove the ink cartridge. Then rinse the feed with lukewarm water until it flows clearly out of the nib. If an ink converter is used, it should be filled with water and emptied until all ink residue has been removed. It is then sufficient to dab the nib dry with a clean cloth. Before refilling the ink or inserting the new cartridge, the housing, cap and handle should be cleaned of internal and external dirt with a lint-free cloth. The ink can flow freely, allowing your thoughts to run free.
