In most cases, if you twist the top or click the top of your pen, it is a ballpoint and one of these options will fit. 99% of the time the numbers you see on your dry refill identify when the refill was made but not its stock number. You can scroll down to locate your brand of refill and identify one that looks the same, then view the length under "Specifications" and measure your old refill to confirm you've got the right fit.
But don't stop there, be sure to look for other manufacturer's options that are the same size and configuration. You may have other ink and point size choices. For example, Parker-style ballpoint refills are offered in three ink types, three point sizes and ten different colors. Select from standard ballpoint ink, liquid ink or gel ink.
In most cases, if you remove the cap of your pen to write, it is a rollerball and one of these options will fit. Take a look at the top and bottom of your refill, this is how you can verify the shape needed to fit your pen.
Whether you use bottles or cartridges, we have your ink!
Most fountain pens utilize ink cartridges. If your pen is a piston fill model, it will refill only with bottled ink. If you would like to use bottled ink, but have only used ink cartridges in the past, then look at the Converters to locate a fit for your brand of pen. Make your choice carefully or if you'd like a 'hand', give us a call at 720.259.1601.
We get an amazing number of fountain pens sent to our offices in Colorado for cleaning. This pleases us beyond description. Almost all of these pens arrive with a detailed note explaining what may be wrong with their pen and why they’ve regrettably, stopped using them.
First, we disassemble and soak the pen. After usually two days of soaking and rinsing, the nib and feed go into a warm ultrasonic bath of cleaning solution. This loosens the tiny ‘crusties’ of pigment residue rinsing just won’t dislodge. Once its completely cleaned to like new condition, the pen is reassembled and extensively tested. We ship the pen back with your pen’s writing test and any suggestions if needed.
