The Beginner's Guide to Fountain Pens

It’s time to demystify the fountain pen. A lot of people think of fountain pens as archaic, inconvenient, or downright intimidating. But as soon as you first use a fountain pen, you realize that they’re really not that different from any other pen. Just touch tip to paper and write.

There is a bit of a learning curve, though, so in this guide we’ll share some instructions and advice that we’ve found helpful for people getting started or who need a refresher. Don’t worry if you aren’t familiar with all the ins and outs of fountain pens—we’ll explain any technical stuff as we go. And please feel free to ask us if you have any questions about using your pen.
