These new ink cages act like an ink reservoir for a pointed pen nib, allowing for lines and lines of writing without re-dipping! Each ink cage comes permanently attached to the specific nib, they are not removable or reusable.
Cleaning Instructions: Clean the nib by dipping it several times in a small jar of tap water for water based ink or add a small amount of pen cleaner (Bombay or Speedball pen cleaner) to the water for
cleaning heavier pigmented inks. Then, pat dry on a folded piece of paper towel rolling it side to side on both sides, being careful on the cage side. Repeat
if needed. A little ink residue or staining in the cage area will not affect the nibs performance. For best performance clean between every other dip depending on
the ink build-up. Do not scrub the Ink Cage or keep the nibs soaked in cleaning solution or use hot water to clean. Ultrasonic cleaners are also not recommended.
