About our Pump Pens

Our Pump Pens are designed to let you use popular drawing nibs in a fountain pen, not bother dipping the nib, and pumping more ink or paint when you need it. 

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. 

Major benefits:

  • Use any ink or paint - nothing sticks to the pen, and they're easy to clean
  • Designed to fit 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 of a similar size in the pen
  • Use adaptors to extend the range of nibs and tools you can use

You can press a pump on the side of the pen when you want to increase the flow of ink or paint to the nib. This can be handy . . .

  • When you want to start the flow after refilling the pen or inserting a new nib
  • When you want to flood large areas, such as drawing a black back drop
  • When you want to wash an are with a dilute solution of ink or paint

You don't have to use the pump all the time. Gravity flow works all the time, same as in a fountain pen. The pump is provided for those situations where you can use it. 

    We produce matching Fountain Pens, which are the same pens without the pump. 

    There are three major parts to the pen:

    • Cap
    • 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. 

    Our pens are fun to use, easy to clean, and hard to plug up.
