Caring for your fountain pen

The first time you use your new Jinhao fountain pen it may take a while to get the ink to flow. There are several things you can do to help start the ink flowing. Squeezing the ink cartridge (or, in the case of a converter, turning the syringe) until you see ink come out of the tip is one approach. Lightly tapping the nib on paper can help. Putting the nib on some tissue can help the ink to start. If that fails, briefly wetting the nib under a running tap or in cup of water will usually start the capillary flow. Otherwise try flushing the pen (see below).

In fountain pens, capillary action drives the ink to the paper. Dirt, fluff, paper fragments and dried ink can accumulate over time, and may cause the pen to write badly (with scratchiness and poor ink flow). Your Jinhao fountain pen will need cleaning to maintain optimal performance. For more help, Google “How to Clean a Fountain Pen”.

As with any fountain pen, if the pen is not used regularly the ink will dry out and you may have to get the ink flowing again. To do this you can “flush” your pen. The supplied ink converter is very good for flushing your pen. For more help, Google “how to flush a fountain pen” or “how to clean your nib”. 

Fountain pen nibs improve with use. After a few weeks of use you usually see improved pen performance. As the pen “breaks in” with use the ink will flush any factory oils and residue from the pen, consequently the ink will flow more consistently and writing will become smoother. It also takes some time for you, the pen user, to get used to your new pen and adapt your writing style to the pen.

To prevent your Jinhao fountain pen ink from drying out if not being used for a prolonged period, it is suggested that you clean out the pen and store it without any ink.
