CARING FOR YOUR DRILLOG METAL DIP PEN NIB
Should the pen's tip accumulate oils, the ink may be repelled, obstructing the ink dipping process due to its water-soluble nature. In such instances, if ink flow to the nib is hindered, follow these steps to eliminate the oil:
Oil Removal Technique for Pen Nib
Gently apply a mild detergent onto a fine-bristled brush, such as a nylon brush or toothbrush. Dampen the brush with water.
With precision, brush along each of the eight grooves, progressing from the nib's shoulder to its tip.
Post brushing, rinse off the detergent using running water or warm water, allowing it to naturally air-dry.
If necessary, repeat steps 1 through 3 once more, in case the ink flow remains obstructed.
Elevate your DRILLOG experience by tending to your metal dip pen nib with care. These simple steps ensure a seamless creative journey, where ink flows as effortlessly as your inspiration.
