    The Pineider Avatar UR Twin Tank Touchdown, or Avatar TTT for short, takes some of the best of the original Avatar's features like the "Unbreakable Resin" material, and adds a new filling mechanism. The Twin Tank Touchdown features two ink chambers: one large ink reservoir that serves as a reserve for longer writing sessions, and a small ink reservoir that is always connected to the nib for shorter writing sessions.

    The ink is drawn up into the pen via the vacuum filler on the back of the barrel. The piston knob can be set in either a "lock" or "unlock" position. "Lock" prevents ink from the larger reservoir from entering the smaller ink reservoir and also helps prevent ink leakage in transit. "Unlock" allows continuous ink flow between the two ink chambers for longer writing sessions.

    This fountain pen is made from a clear material called "Unbreakable Resin", or UR for short, that is highly resistant to cracks or damage if dropped. It is complemented by silver trim, features a magnetic cap closure, and comes equipped with a #6 sized steel nib.

    Reviews & Questions

    FAQS

    How do I fill a fountain pen with ink?

    It depends on the pen's filling mechanism, which you can find in the Technical Specs section above.

    Here's a quick definition of the most common filling mechanisms:

    Cartridge - A small, disposable, sealed plastic reservoir that holds fountain pen ink. These come pre-filled with ink, and typically you just push to insert them into place and you'll be ready to write!

    Converter - A detachable and refillable ink reservoir that allows you to use bottled ink in a cartridge-accepting pen. Typically you will install the converter into the grip section, dip the nib/feed into the ink, and twist or pull the converter knob to draw ink into the converter. Here's a video for how to fill a cartridge/converter pen using a LAMY pen as an example.

    Eyedropper - A pen that utilizes the entire barrel as a reservoir for ink. Ink is directly filled into the barrel, allowing for a high ink capacity. Here's a video on how to do it!

    Piston - A type of filling system that uses a retracting plunger inside a sealed tube to draw ink into a pen. They are typically either twist or push-operated. These pens cannot accept cartridges or a converter, and only fill from bottled ink.

    Vacuum - A push-style piston that uses pressure to fill the large pen body with ink. They seal the ink chamber when closed, making it ideal for flying without risk of leaking.

    You can learn more with our Fountain Pen 101 video on Filling Mechanisms on YouTube.

    How do I clean a fountain pen?

    It depends on the filling mechanism, but it mostly comes down to flushing it out with water, and sometimes a little bit of Pen Flush if the ink is really stuck.

    It's a bit easier to show than to tell, so we've put together a few quick videos showing you the process:

    How to Clean a Cartridge/Converter Pen

    How to Clean an Eyedropper Pen

    How to Clean a Piston Pen

    How often do I need to clean my fountain pen?

    We recommend a good cleaning every 2 weeks, and any time you change ink colors.

    Water will usually do the trick, but we recommend you use our Goulet Pen Flush if the ink has been left in the pen for a while and could have dried up, or when you’re switching ink colors.

    My pen won’t write! What do I do?

    First things first... make sure you have ink in the pen! Be sure that the ink cartridge or converter is seated properly in the pen, and that you aren't out of ink.

    We always recommend you give your pen a good cleaning first, using our Goulet Pen Flush, or a drop of dish soap in some water. New pens often have some machining oil residue left in the feed, so a good cleaning often does the trick first.

    If that still doesn't work, try priming the feed. This consists of either dipping your pen nib and feed in ink, or forcing ink from the converter down into the feed.

    If it’s still not working after that, please reach out to us so we can help!
