Two versions - hardshell and softshell
Our Crowquill Fountain Pens contains an adapter to hold the crowquill nib. There are two types of adapters - hardshell and softshell
The hardshell adapter fits tightly into the pen. You can remove and resinsert the adapter, but the more you do this, the less tight the fit. This guarantees the most reliable flow of ink to the tip of the crowquill nib. Since it has a more complex design, it has a higher price.
The softshell adapter is designed to slip in and out of the Fountain Pen easily. This lets you use several tools in the same pen.
About the reservoir
You can double the volume of ink or paint stored in the pen by removing the reservoir and filling the body. Draw all day and never run out. The reservoir provides a double wall of protection, which might be what you want, but it does reduce your carrying capacity.
Crowquill works better in the Pump Pen
Crowquills have a constrained ink flow due to the tubular design of the nib and the small air hole at the tip. We recommend using the Crowquill Pump Pen with crowquills. Pressing the pump can help force a more reliable flow of ink through the quill nib. That said, many crowquill users order our Crowquill Fountain Pen and are happy with it.
Other nibs you can use in this pen
- Use our large nib feed for Zebra Manga G, Brause Rose, and our Sketch nibs
- Use our Nikko/Tachikawa feed for those nibs as well as the Prinicipal nib
- Use the Gillott 303 adapter to draw and write with that nib
You can attach our Brush Tool to wash your drawings with water or dilute ink, and to paint on watercolors.
