About our Fountain Pens
Our Fountain Pens are designed to let you use popular drawing nibs, especially dip nibs, in a fountain pen and not bother dipping the nib.
These are durable pens designed to last a life time. This is the 12th version of this pen that we have developed since we first started producing pens 20 years ago.
- Use any ink or paint - nothing sticks to the pen, and they're easy to clean
- Designed to hold the most popular large drawing nibs
- Replace the nib easily - just slide out one tool and slip in the other
- Large capacity ink reservoir - draw all day and don't run out
- Use other nibs in the same pen
We produce matching Pump Pen. Same as our Fountain Pens but with a pump that lets you encourage the flow.
Other nibs you can use
There are two categories of drawing nibs defined by size.
- Large nibs include the Zebra Manga G, Brause Rose and our Sketch nibs. This also includes Hunt 22B, Hunt 56, Hunt 101, Brause Bandzug, Brause Ornamental, and other nibs of a similar size and shape. All these nibs fit our Large Nib Feed.
- Smaller nibs include most popular drawing nibs as small as the crowquill to the Principal.
Fountain Pen anatomy
There are three major parts to the pen:
- Body contains the nib and feed
- Barrel contains the reservoir
Both the cap and the barrel are screw-fit for a tighter fit and no leakage. The last spin is tight so you lock down the piece.
You can push out the feed and look clear through the body. This makes it easy to clean and hard to plug up, which is ideal when you are working with permanent artistic media, such as India ink and acrylic paint.
Expand your carrying capacity
You can double the carrying capacity of the pen by removing the cartridge and filling the pen body with ink or paint. This removes the "double wall protection" provided by a cartridge, but the screw seal on the body is tight, so there is little risk of leakage.
