There are many people who saw it on Instagram and became interested in it, but don't know how to choose it, how to use it, or how to care for it.
For such glass pen beginners, I will tell you about the charm of glass pens, how to choose, and how to use them!
What is a glass pen
A glass pen is a writing utensil developed in Japan in 1902 by Teijiro Sasaki, a wind chime craftsman. A type of dip pen, a pen made of glass is called a glass pen. A writing utensil that uses the phenomenon of capillarity, and has a groove on the side of the tip-like glass of the brush.
Glass pens have spread all over the world because of their smoothness of writing and long-lasting ink. In the early days, only the tip of the glass pen was glass and the barrel was made of other materials, but in 1989, an integrated glass pen was developed from the tip to the barrel, which gained popularity due to its beautiful appearance. And it is also praised as a work. This integrated type is also available at PellePenna.
Another feature of glass pens is their compatibility with color ink. It has the advantage of being able to enjoy various colors of ink because it can be washed quickly.
How to use the glass pen
① Soak the pen tip in the ink bottle
Dip the pen vertically about 1/3 into the mouth of the ink bottle. At this time, excess ink on the pen tip is sucked up into the groove of the pen tip by capillary action.
② Pick up the pen.
Gently lift the tip of the pen and wait for a while. At this time, be careful not to damage the pen tip.
You can enjoy the original feeling of writing with a glass pen by laying the pen down slightly.
You can write more characters by turning the pen tip little by little.
After writing... when changing the color
① Fill a container such as a cup with water and insert the pen tip
② Insert the nib and shake it gently in water to wash off the ink.
③ Gently wipe off moisture with a soft cloth or tissue.
