Regular cleaning is crucial for maintaining the performance and longevity of your Nahvalur fountain pen. Here’s how to do it:

 

Materials Needed

- Clean, lukewarm or tepid water
- A soft cloth
- Pen flush solution (for deeper cleaning)

Steps

1. Uncap your pen and remove excess ink into the sink.
2. Using the piston or vacuum mechanism, draw clean water into the pen from a cup. It is best to use clean, distilled water for this step.
3. Expel that water back into the sink.
4. Repeat this process until the water you expel from your pen runs clear.
5. Use the soft cloth to gently blot the nib and feed.
6. Recap your pen. It’s ready for inking and writing!
7. Occasionally, it helps to use a pen flush solution to clean the feed and nib, especially if you frequently switch ink colors or use highly pigmented inks.

Choosing the right ink and managing it properly can prevent many common fountain pen issues.

 

Use Quality Ink. Stick to reputable brands of fountain pen ink to avoid clogging and damage.

 

Avoid Letting Ink Dry Out. If you’re not using your pen for an extended period, clean it or ensure it’s properly capped to prevent the ink from drying in the feed and nib.

 

Refill Regularly. Don’t let your pen run completely dry. Check the ink level regularly and refill as needed.

 

Nib Maintenance

The nib is the heart of your Nahvalur fountain pen. Proper care ensures a smooth and enjoyable writing experience.

 

Gentle Use. Avoid pressing down too hard while writing. Fountain pens require minimal pressure.

 

Adjustments. If your nib becomes misaligned or damaged, seek professional assistance. Do not attempt to fix it yourself unless you have experience.

 

Routine Check-ups. Inspect your nib regularly for any signs of wear or damage. A magnifying glass can help spot issues that might not be visible to the naked eye.

 

Storage and Handling

Proper storage and handling can prevent many common issues and extend the life of your pen.

 

Cap Your Pen. Always cap your pen when not in use to prevent the nib from drying out and to protect it from damage.

 

Store Vertically. Store your pen vertically with the nib pointing up when not in use to prevent ink from pooling in the nib and feed.

 

Avoid Extreme Temperatures. Keep your pen away from extreme heat or cold, which could potentially damage it. It is best to keep your fountain pen in a room between 18° and 22°C (64° and 72°F).

 

Routine Maintenance

Monthly Cleaning. If you use your pen daily, a monthly cleaning is advisable. For less frequent use, clean it every few months.

 

Annual Tune-Up. Consider a professional tune-up once a year to ensure all parts are in optimal condition and functioning smoothly.

 

The Bottom Line

Caring for your Nahvalur fountain pen is a rewarding practice that ensures it continues to provide a delightful writing experience for years to come. With regular cleaning, careful nib maintenance, and proper storage, your pen will remain in pristine condition. Happy writing!
