rapidocraft pens

I purchased a rapidocraft pen and there were no instructions on how to use or care for this pen. I read on your forum that the key to their fine performance is cleanliness. Does anyone know what the procedure is for cleaning the pen after each use? And, what is the technique for activating the ink flow?

Re: rapidocraft pens

I have a seven pen set of these and I just looked up the cleaning instructions.

"Cleaning is recommended before each refilling. Disassemble pen. Gently tap rear of pen body on paper wipe to remove residual ink. Using nib key, unscrew nib from pen body. (Circular nib keys are included with pen sets. The square color-coded end cap of the individual pen packaging tube is the nib key.) Clean nib and pen body under lukewarm running water or by soaking in Rapido-Eze pen cleaning solution. Shake out remaining liquid. Dry nib and pen body thoroughly with paper wipe."

STARTING: Start ink-flow with a gentle horizontal shaking motion. Holding pen in a vertical position, draw on a scratch pad until good ink flow appears. The patented air-tight Dry Double-Seal Cal Liner prevents ink from drying when cap is replaced securely after using the pen.

I hope this helps you.

Re: rapidocraft pens

They're Rapidograph pens, and yes, keeping them clean is essential.
