Over two years ago, I did this handy video on flushing your cartridge/converter fountain pen with a bulb syringe, which is easily the single best trick to improve your fountain pen cleaning experience. I wanted to update the video to include it in the Fountain Pen 101 series, as well as include a bonus trick for flushing pens like the Pilot Falcon and Sheaffer 100 that don’t flush well with a bulb syringe.
In the video, I cover:
- Flushing a pen with a bulb syringe (0:34)
- Adapting an ink syringe with an ink cartridge (4:45)
- Lamy Vista
- Pilot Falcon
- Sheaffer 100
- Bulb Syringe
- Ink Syringe
- Ink Cartridges (that come with the pens)
This is a handy trick that’s much easier than flushing out a pen with a converter, enjoy! I’d love to hear what you think in the comments :)
