Hunt 56 Pump Pen



Draw and write with a Hunt 56 nib in our Pump Pen.

  • Contains one Hunt 56 nib and matching feed
  • Replace the nib when it wears down or plugs up - slip out the old and stick in the new
  • Use any ink or paint, even India ink or acrylic paint
  • Large capacity cartridge - draw all day and don't worry about running out
  • Press the pump when you want a stronger flow
  • Use other nibs of a similar size and shape 

The Hunt 56 is a popular workhorse drawing nib, flexible and strong. 

Our Pump Pen is ideal for encouraging the flow of ink or paint. This is especially useful when you want to:

  • Kick start the flow for a new nib
  • 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

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.
