Unscrew the pen section. If the converter is missing, insert it in the section entrance, screwing it tight if it is threaded. If the converter is already inserted, go to point 4.

Fountain pen maintenance advice
Wash the nib regularly under lukewarm running water, without using any other product. Washing is necessary in cases where the flow of ink is intermittent or has stopped, where the feed system is blocked, if the ink has dried or if the colour of the ink is to be changed. To clean piston driven pens, fill and empty the reservoir several times until the water runs clear. To prevent the pen from leaking, keep it filled and carry it with the nib turned upwards. For optimal function of the models with ebonite feeders, fill and empty the feed system with ink twice before using the pen for the first time and subsequently every time after washing.
Replacing the nib
Should the width of the nib not be the most suitable for your style, the Montegrappa service agents will be pleased to replace the original nib free of charge if it is returned as new within six weeks from the purchase from a Montegrappa authorised dealer.
We advise using only Montegrappa ink.
Unscrew the pen barrel anticlockwise. Take out the old refill and insert the new one. Screw the pen back together.
The tip projects and withdraws automatically by twisting the cap of the pen.
