Care Recommendations for your Montblanc Writing Instrument
We created the videos to show how to clean and refill your Montblanc fountain pen. Montblanc recommends cleaning your fountain pen approximately every three months to preserve its pristine condition. Especially if the ink has dried up due to lack of use, the feeder system is blocked, a different colour of ink is to be used or the ink flow becomes irregular or stops. For cleaning, use only lukewarm water without any chemical products. It is impossible to prevent condensation after the cleaning process inside the cap. Condensation can dissolve traces of dried ink, causing a colour change in the new ink. Therefore, always be careful to clean the nib and cap with a damp lint-free cloth. To avoid leakage, keep the writing instrument fully filled with new ink and carry the fountain pen with the nib pointing upwards.
Important note: It is particularly important to clean the fountain pen regularly if permanent ink is used, as the high solids content of the ink can lead to deposits forming in the feed system. It should be cleaned approximately every two weeks.
