This is a beautiful pen to look at, to feel in the hand, and to write with! I am very pleased!

Simple Elegance

I'm not new to the TACCIA line. I have a few fountain pens and rollerballs. I do like colorful writers at times but this is for those times when quiet writing is desired. The finish makes this an understated beauty. Its cigar shape, size, body colored and finished clip adds to the elegance and writing experience. In the cap there is a cushion of sorts that seals and protects the nib. When speaking with the TACCIA rep in Chicago I was told Sailor was still making their nibs. There are no identifying markings to indicate its sailor made however, it performs as if it were. It does come with a Sailor cartridge. I really like the pen sleeve that come with the pen in its wooden box. It's colors are beautiful. A pleasant reminder of the country and culture of the pens origins. Once again a beautiful writing instrument. TACCIA didn't let us down. I have added a photo of the TACCIA roller ball that will be its travel companion. Great pens & top end quality.

Beautiful Pen

It is a beautiful pen. I love the smooth glass like feel of lacquered urushi. It feels wonderful to the touch. Haven't inked it yet. Love to just look at it.

Exquisite Pen

My first Taccia. Miyabi Earth in Aka-Tamenuri has a lovely 18K bi-color nib. Using the included ink - Taccia Ume Murasaki - the broad nib lays down an adequately wet line. The urushi lacquer is a rich, dark red through which you can see underlayers in strong light. I expect the finish to wear in to reveal more depth as I use this pen. Atypical is that the clip is also finished in lacquer. The cap has a springy inner cap to ensure an airtight seal. Size and weight are just right for me. And the finish is luxurious.

FAQs about Fountain Pens

How do I fill a fountain pen with ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

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! Check out our quick guide here.
  • 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. Check out our video on how to use a vac filler here.

Check out more info on these filling mechanisms including a video on how to fill each one on our blog.

How do I clean a fountain pen? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

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 often do I need to clean my fountain pen? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

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? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

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! 

What's your return policy? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

You can submit a return request within 30 days of your order date. You can read all our Return Policies here.

To initiate a return, please submit a request at the Return Portal. Our Customer Care team might reach out to you for more information.

Please note we are unable to accept a return of any Namiki or Sailor Bespoke fountain pen for any reason once it has been used with ink. Please thoroughly inspect and dry test the pen before use.
