You can order this pen with or without an overfeed. The version without the overfeed is shipped unless you select the version with an overfeed.
The overfeed extends the width and range of lines you can draw. 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.
You can remove the overfeed if you don't want to use it, but you must replace the overfeed with aspacer. You can slip overfeeds and spacers in and out of the 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. The reservoir provides a double wall of guaranteed protection, which might be what you want, but it does reduce your carrying capacity.
We ship this pen with the standard flow feed, which works with most popular drawing inks and paints including Golden Hi-Flow Acrylic. We also provide a rich flow feed for exceptionally thick inks and paints, but we recommend the standard flow to start with.
