Very important: Never leave your pen exposed to extreme temperatures. Keep it out of your car to avoid cracking due to heat or cold. Also, your pen is made of wood, and unless it has an acrylic finish, it will absorb anything it comes in contact with. This results in beautiful patina but also in ink messes if you’re not careful. We suggest leaving your wood or antler parts away from your ink filling process until you have wiped your cartridge and washed your hands. Fountain pens can be messy and ink stains.

We strive to produce writing instruments of the highest quality, and to the satisfaction of our clientele. If you have issues or are in need of a repair on your pen, please contact us and it is our pleasure to see to your instrument’s highest functionality. There is a charge for repairs made which are user-error. Cleanings of your writing instruments should be performed on a regular basis. All fountain pens require “flushing” the feed. Please see youtube videos for care and filling or ask us via email if you have further questions. Happy writing!
Caring for your fountain pen
All of my pens are made of natural materials therefore, they need a little more care than your average pen made of synthetics. Please, above all, NEVER leave your pen in a vehicle. It only takes a few minutes for your vehicle to reach temperatures that will literally bake the pen and ink therein. Wood and antler, when subjected to high heat, will crack in a very short period of time. If your wooden pen has a natural finish rather than the glossy acrylic finish, it can’t hurt to occasionally rub a little linseed, olive or lemon oil into the wood. Regular use will keep your pens hydrated from the natural oils in your hands soaking into the wood, but if you have a large collection, and only rotate them in occasionally, lightly oil them before the dry cold winter months. If your pen has the glossy acrylic finish, no need for oil, just don’t leave them in the car. In the unlikely event that your pen does crack, not to worry, I can fix it and usually at no charge. If it is obviously damaged because of dropping or misuse, I can usually repair and restore it for under $50.
To oil your pen, put a tiny drop of olive or lemon oil (not juice) on your finger and rub it into the wood. With a paper towel, wipe down the metal components. After three to five minutes, wipe off any remaining oil from the wood and metal.
