Fountain Pens

A fountain pen is a nib pens that, unlike its predecessor, the dip pen, contain an internal reservoir of water-based liquid ink. The pen draws ink from the reservoir, through a feed, to the nib and deposits it on paper via a combination of gravity and capillary action. A fountain pen needs little or no pressure on the nib to write.

All Wildflower fountain pens will come with a disposable pre-filled ink cartridge, and a converter (reservoir) for those who prefer to use bottled ink. Filling the reservoir with ink can be achieved via an internal filling mechanism which creates suction (for example, through a piston mechanism) to transfer ink directly through the nib into the reservoir.
