Our Pump Pen is ideal for encouraging the flow of ink or paint. This is especially useful when you want to:
Ink in large areas, such as backgrounds and back drops
Force more ink or paint for a surge when you want to draw more quickly, flex back nibs or work with quill nibs where the ink flows through the nib tube
Work with thicker inks and paints that don't flow easily
Kick start the flow for a new nib
With or without overfeed?
You can order this pen with or without an overfeed.
The overfeed is a device designed to extend the width and range of lines you can draw using a flexible nib. It rests above the nib, stores more ink between the nib and overfeed, controls the spread of the two tynes, and lets you draw wider lines for a longer time. Read moreabout our overfeeds.
The version without the overfeed is shipped unless you select the version with an overfeed.
About the reservoir
You can double the volume of ink or paint stored in the pen by removing the reservoir and filling the body. The reservoir provides a double wall of guaranteed protection, which might be what you want, but it does reduce your carrying capacity.
Other nibs you can use
All Japanese Manga G nibs
Brause Rose and Ornamental nibs
Our Super Sketch nibs
Hunt drawing nibs 22B, 56, and 101
Use an adapter to draw and write with crowquills and Gillott 303 nibs
You can attach our Brush Tool to the back of this pen and use it to wash your drawing with water or dilute ink as well as paint with watercolors.
