Fountain Pen 101: Fast Pen Flushing

Over two years ago, I did this handy video on flushing your cartridge/converter fountain pen with a bulb syringe, which is easily the single best trick to improve your fountain pen cleaning experience. I wanted to update the video to include it in the Fountain Pen 101 series, as well as include a bonus hack/trick for flushing pens that don't flush well with a bulb syringe.

In the video, I cover:

  • Flushing a pen with a bulb syringe (0:34)
  • Adapting an ink syringe with an ink cartridge (4:45)

    This is a handy trick that's much easier than flushing out a pen with a converter, enjoy!
