What are Fountain Pens & Calligraphy Pens and How Do You Use Them?


Fountain pens date back to the past. In ancient times, people had to use dip pens to write with ink. The first dip pen was simply a sharpened stick or feather. The nibs of these dip pens wear out quickly, and people have developed metal nibs to last longer.  The dip pens are dipped directly into the inkwell and they hold enough ink to write just a few words. When the ink on the nib runs out, it is necessary to dip the pen back into the inkwell to continue writing.  Due to all these difficulties, fountain pens were produced.


The first fountain pen was created from the idea of using the body of the ink as an ink reservoir. But these fountain pens were leaking. Today's fountain pens started to be produced by placing a rubber pouch inside the pen as an ink reservoir. Fountain pens, which have not gone out of fashion for many years and are indispensable helpers of writing enthusiasts, stand out in terms of both their duration of use and their performance.


Fountain pens with different designs and nib thicknesses provide comfort in the writing process as they can appeal to the personal preferences of each user. Although fountain pens may seem difficult to use, they are actually very practical. Above all, how you hold the pen is an important detail. The small hole through which the ink flows should be on the upper side. If you hold the pen sideways or upside down, you cannot write.


Calligraphy pens are a specific type of fountain pens - they are used for special lettering and writing projects. They are often dip pens without an ink reservoir and have a broader, flatter edge than fountain pens.


Before using the fountain pen, you need to clean it every time. Cleaning the fountain pen before use will prevent possible ink fluidity problems. You can find all the materials you need for a pleasant writing process from the premium fountain and calligraphy pens category in Avansas' product selection.



How to Clean Fountain Pens & Calligraphy Pens?


In order to use the fountain and calligraphy pens for a long time, it is necessary to clean them periodically.

  • • Never use detergents and washing up liquids! Especially avoid liquids with high ammonia content, as things such as detergent or bleach can seriously damage the body and metal parts of your pen over time.
  • • If you are inexperienced, never use razor blades. Sometimes there is a good chance that you will ruin the nib, which is worth more than the pen itself.
  • • The most accurate and guaranteed method is to drain warm and clean water over and over and soak the pen in water for a while. Remember, the best and harmless cleaning method is to use pure water.
  • • Make sure to empty the fountain pens that you will not use. It will not be good for the pen to keep the ink inside for a long time.



How to Fill Fountain Pens?


Fountain pen models are produced using nibs of different thickness to meet the expectations of each user. The ink filled in the pen's chamber is delivered to the tip in drops. Therefore, the amount of ink that penetrates the paper depends on the width of the ink chamber and the thickness of the nib. The refilling method varies depending on the type of fountain pen. Cartridges suitable for some fountain pens are inserted into the relevant part of the pen. Thus, the ink reaches the tip of the pen. Some fountain pens are filled with ink directly from the ink bottles. When filling your fountain pen, you need to be sure that all parts of the pen are correctly and firmly inserted to prevent ink from staining your hand, paper or notebook.
