Step 2: Dip in ink
Dip the nib in ink to soak, taking care to avoid contact with the base of the ink bottle. To remove excess ink, lightly tap the lip of the bottle.
Step 3: Write
Hold the pen at a 45-degree angle and write gently without applying excess pressure. Each dip writes two to three sentences depending on the ink and paper used.
Use a pen rest when setting down your pen to keep it safely in place.
Step 4: Rinse
Rinse the nib in a cup of water and dry with a soft, clean cloth.
Step 5: Remove
Hold the nib and slowly pull out of the nib holder. Remove any water from the nib mount by pointing it downwards and blotting with a tissue.
