How to refill your fountain pen

The converter is just one of many ways to fill a fountain pen. You can also switch back to ink cartridges. It all depends on what your priorities are, and whether you value capacity, color options, or convenience most.

How to clean a fountain pen

Fountain pens need periodic cleaning to keep them performing their best. They should be cleaned every 4-8 weeks, even if they are still writing well and whenever you are changing from one ink to another.

Uncap the pen and remove the nib section from the barrel of the pen, hold it under cold or room-temperature running water for a few seconds to wash off any easily removable ink and let it dry for 12–24 hours on a smooth cloth or paper towel to help draw the water out of the nib.

Once the nib section is dry, install the converter or cartridge, and screw the nib section back into the barrel.
