Calligraphy pen set FAQs

What is a calligraphy pen?

A calligraphy pen is a thin pen with a special-shaped nib designed for lettering and calligraphy. Traditional calligraphy pens require you to dip the metal nib into ink, but there are modern kinds designed like regular markers that have a constant flow of ink into the nib or versions that have an ink cartridge you have to insert yourself.

How to set up a calligraphy pen

Hold the nib in one hand by its base, not the pointy tines, and in your other hand hold the pen body so the empty end is facing up. Looking into the body you will see a metal cross-like shape - you want to insert the base of the nib on the outside of this cross on the edge of the hollow, not straight down into the middle of it. Push the nib down until it is firmly in place to finish setting up your calligraphy pen.

How to clean a calligraphy pen nib

A simple swish in a cup of tap water when dried ink starts to impact your work will be enough to keep your nib in good condition as you work, but make sure to dip it into the water just past the reservoir, as if water gets into the pen or onto the rest of the nib it can cause rust that is very hard to remove without damaging the pen. Dry your nib with a non-fibrous cloth when done.
