I love using my fountain pens on a daily basis. Believe it or not, I also find cleaning and maintaining my fountain pens to be enjoyable. It’s so satisfying to flush out a fountain pen and then fill it with new, fresh ink. I’m bringing new life into each pen that I fill. When I go to clean out a fountain pen, I want to make sure I’m getting every last drop of the previous ink out. This is especially important to me when changing ink colors in the same fountain pen. Talking with Bert about this, he came up with the idea of taking individual cleaning tools, and bundling them up into a “value pack” to make it easier for folks like me to start the cleaning process fully equipped. Hence the new Bertram’s Inkwell Ultimate Pen Cleaning Kit.
First of all, the Bertram’s Inkwell Ultimate Pen Cleaning Kit is a three piece set. It includes: one 8oz bottle of Monteverde Pen Flush, one Bertram’s Inkwell Ink Syringe, and one Bertram’s Inkwell Bulb Syringe Pen Cleaner. Normally buying all of these individually would cost almost $20. But the Bertram’s Inkwell Ultimate Pen Cleaning Kit reduces that to only $14.95.
Secondly, what makes this kit so great is that it covers all aspects of your pen flushing and cleaning needs. Starting with the Monteverde Pen Flush, I’m a huge fan of how well this cleans fountain pens. I’ve had so many of my own fountain pens that I thought needed to go back for repair, only to be saved by this pen flush. It helps break down the toughest of dried ink particles, and helps lubricate pistons and converters to work like new again.
Continuing with the Bertram’s Inkwell Ink Syringe, it has many uses. Not only does it allow you to experiment with transferring inks and getting every last drop, but it also allows you to fill empty cartridges easily. As for the cleaning aspect, this ink syringe enables you to clean old ink from a converter and get those hard-to-reach spots.
Finally, the Bertram’s Inkwell Bulb Syringe Pen Cleaner is ideal for pushing the Monteverde Pen Flush through the grip section, and nib and feed. The pressure as you squeeze the bulb helps force the unwanted ink particles out of the pen. As soon as you see the flush come through with a clear color, then you know your pen is clean again and ready for refilling.
