To ensure Montegrappa writing instruments remain looking and working at their very best, owners should undertake regular care and maintenance.
To remove stains or fingerprints from resin or celluloid body sections, wipe clean with a soft damp cloth.Do not use solvents or chemical products that may damage surfaces. Under no circumstances should alcohol be used on celluloid finishes.Pens made of sterling silver should be cleaned with the supplied cleaning cloth, or other lint-free cloth. Use silver polish where necessary.Dirt and tarnishing found in fretwork and intricate engravings can be removed using a silver brush or a soft toothbrush.
PISTON-FILL FOUNTAIN PENSPiston-fill fountain pens have an ink reservoir within the barrel. Refilling requires no disassembly:
CONVERTER FOUNTAIN PENS
CARTRIDGE FOUNTAIN PENS
Clean nibs regularly under lukewarm running water. (Note: do not use any other liquids or cleaning agents). Rinsing is required whenever ink flow is intermittent or has stopped, when the feed system is blocked, if ink has dried, or if you wish to change ink colour.To clean piston-fill pens, submerge the nib in water and twist the blindcap to fill and empty the reservoir several times until the water runs clear.To prevent your pen from leaking, keep it filled and carry your pen with the nib facing upwards.For nib units fitted with ebonite feeds, fill and empty the reservoir with ink twice before first use, and after cleaning.For optimal performance, we recommend the use of Montegrappa inks.
Should your nib grade not perfectly match your preference, Montegrappa Service Agents will replace the original nib free of charge if it is returned in new condition within six weeks of purchase from an authorized Montegrappa dealer.
