Our Pump Pen is ideal for encouraging the flow of ink or paint. This is especially useful when you want to:
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
Kick start the flow for a new nib
About the 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, and controls the degree of flex, which lets you draw wider lines for a longer time. Read more about our overfeeds.
You can replace the overfeed with a spacer when you don't want to use the overfeed.
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 protection, which might be what you want, but you can carry more volume without the reservoir.
Select your feed flow rate
You can select the feed rate flow for your pen. We provide the standard flow feed in this pen, which works with most popular drawing inks and paints, including Golden Hi-Flow Acrylic. You can order the rich flow feed, which is designed for exceptionally thick inks and paints, however, we recommend starting out with the standard flow.
Other nibs you can use
Brause Rose, most other Brause nibs, our Sketch nibs as well as many Osmiroid nibs and the selected Hunt nibs 22B, 56, and 101
