Dip Pen Care

Basic care and maintenance instructions for your dip nibs and reservoirs:

  • Ensure your nib and reservoir are assembled correctly with the reservoir about 2 mm or 1⁄10 inch away from the tip of the pen nib.
  • Dip pen ink has more pigmentation than fountain pen ink and the nib and reservoir can get blocked if ink dries on them.
  • At the end of each session and at any time if ink is not flowing properly wash nib and reservoir in lukewarm water until the ink is removed. We recommend you put the plug in the basin so that the nib and reservoir do not get washed down the drain! Then dry carefully with paper tissue and reassemble.
