Frequently Asked Questions

When storing your fountain pen, ensure it is always capped or retracted to avoid drying out.

We recommend storing it horizontally or with the fountain pen nib up if it is inked.

Piston fillers like the CUSTOM 823 have a blind cap at the end of the barrel which should be screwed down to close off ink flow, making it a superb pen to travel with.

One of the pleasures of fountain pens is that they require very little pressure to write as ink flows smoothly through the nib. Be more gentle than you would with a ballpoint or rollerball. Pushing too hard will damage the nib.
