If you own a newer (demonstrator) Pilot Prera, then you’ve experienced the affliction of ink behind the cap insert. This insert does a good job of sealing the nib so it doesn’t dry out, but it also does a good job of sealing ink into the cap! I used to think it was just a fact of life, but with some experimentation, I discovered the cap does in fact disassemble entirely! With these few simple steps, you can completely clean out your Prera cap to look like new.
