Which side should be used?

  • As you write, the branding on the handle should be facing upwards.

 

How to fill the pen?

  • Bottled ink - Dip the nib into the ink and shake the nib very gently. This will hold the optimum amount of ink and excess ink will not drop on the page.
  • Brush - You may fill the Pratik Pen with a brush, dropper or pipette.

 

How do I set up?

  • There should be a cushion of blotting paper or leather underneath the paper on which you wish to write or draw using the Pratik Pen.

 

The pen isn't working properly...

  • Make sure the metals blades are in equal contact with each other. If one of the metal blades is slightly misaligned, gently press on the sloped flange on a page till the blades are in equal contact.

 

If the nib is snagging on the paper

  • If a new pen is scratchy or the writing tip is rough, rub the tip back and forth on a very fine sandpaper or Wet or Dry abrasive paper - between 1000 and 2000 grit.

 

How to clean the pen?

  • Scrub the nib with an old toothbrush and water. Be gentle or you may damage the pen. Dry using a soft cloth or paper towel.
