To start a fountain pen the first time:

  1. Install cartridge as described above.
  2. Gently squeeze cartridge slowly until ink starts to flow.
  3. Using a soft cloth, wipe off the nib and "wick" ink into it for writing.
  4. Start writing and ink should flow.

Care & First Aid for Fountain Pens:

  1. Use only cool water to flush out your pen nib. If it has dried up then soak the nib in a solution of 2/3 water & 1/3 non-sudsing ammonia and rinse in cold water.
  2. Do not let anyone else use your fountain pen as it has become suited to your hand. Remember that a break in period of 3 to 4 weeks is required.
  3. Always place the cap back on the pen when not in use.
  4. When traveling in an airplane, remove the cartridge as it will leak at high altitudes. If you are filling from a piston style converter, remember to bleed out a couple of drops after filling to insure proper ink flow.
  5. Always use fresh ink.

Wood Finish Care

Occasional waxing using a high quality carnauba wax or a Kiwi neutral shoe polish will help keeping your writing instrument looking good. Apply the wax, let it dry and then buff with a soft cloth.


None of our pens, pencils or letter openers is intended for use by children and should be kept out of their reach. The pointed ends of pens, pencils and letter openers can cause serious injury to a child. The removable caps on pens could represent a choking hazard.

We are confident that you will enjoy your writing instrument as much as we have enjoyed creating it.
