Rated 5 out of 5 by Brian from How did I ever live without this? This is the same type of syringe we used to clean out our daughter's nose when she was younger. She still can't blow her own nose very well (she's 3), but trying to use a syringe like this on her now would probably result in her breaking MY nose. At any rate, this makes cleaning out my pens between fillings a breeze. I used to use the converter to pull water in and out of the feed and that took forever. With the syringe, it's quick and painless. You can also use it to blow air through the feed when you're done to dry the pen out more quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarioG from Works as expected I bought the bulb after watching Brian use it on a YouTube video. I have recently become a fan of fountain pens and have started my collection with a Lamy Safari and a Pilot Metropolitan. The bulb speeds up the cleaning process which is important because I'm doing a lot of experimenting with different types of inks with only 2 pens. It helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Driften from Works great for cleaning sections The bulb syringe holds a lot of water and can flush a section clean in one or two bulbs full of water. There will still be a little ink in the feed but a touch to a paper towel normally takes the last hint of ink out of the nib. It also works on converters if you can take the converter apart. For some sections you might be better cutting the tip off the bulb so it fits around the section instead of inside where the converter would sit. My Pilot 74/91/92 it works as is, on my Bexley it would work better cut. I have not tried it on my other pens yet but it is much better then just soaking or flushing using the converter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DMS525 from Great tool ... until the seam splits These bulb syringes are terrific for cleaning nibs. However, the ring around the "equator" of the bulb is a seam, and I have just had my second Goulet Bulb Syringe split on that seam, as did my first Goulet Bulb Syringe. Now, it did last several months and probably was used a couple dozen times, at least, and it only costs $3.95. However, I would like a device with similar functionality that is not disposable-grade. I will be looking for an alternative. It would be very fine if Goulet Pens found one to carry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Campbell from the ideal cleaning tool For any pen (excluding vacuum fillers), this pen makes cleaning easier by tenfold. i could say more but i dont need to. Gone are the days of filling and dumping with water until it runs clear, only to find out that there is still residual ink in your converter. Push a bulb full of water through your pen and it will be cleaner than it ever has. what i like most is that the end fits comfortably in the section of most pens, for a tight fit that forces the water through the feed. Add some pen flush to the mix and honestly, this is the one tool you NEED to have from the start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jonas from Great for cleaning! This is pretty much just a standard bulb syringe like any other but I think it works really great for cleaning pens. No more endless twisting to empty and fill the converter with water to flush out the pen. I really recommend you watch the Goulet video that illustrates how to best clean your pen with a bulb syringe even though it is quite easy to figure out by yourself. Fits great inside a LAMY AL-STAR

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maite from Great cleaning helper I bought this a month ago and I am very happy with my purchase. I used it to clean a Lamy Safari, following the instructions in Brian's videos, and it was very easy and much faster than flushing with the converter. A must-have for fountain pen cleaning. Goulet Pens has great customer service, they pack the items for shipping with a LOT of care. Fast shipping and I received all the items in my order in perfect condition. Very happy with my purchase. I would definitely buy from them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by perisoreus from It Does the Job, and Quickly This is a simple tool, neither beautiful nor elegant, and intended for other purposes. But for cleaning cartridge/converter pens, it accomplishes the task more quickly than any other device or method. As a result, cleaning a pen is not the dreadful chore it once was. Some people cut off some of the end of this tool for a better fit. I have not done so, and it has worked well on at least 5 different models of pens. But do make sure that the seal of the tool against the nib unit is good; otherwise it can squirt water backwards. (And of course, it is best not to clean a fountain pen while wearing valued clothing.) In short, this is the most cost-effective purchase I have made of a fountain-pen-related item.
