About This Product
Made in Milan, Italy in the 1930s, this vintage pen nib was meant for everyday writing, and it's still great for that purpose. The Cobaltea 78EF is a medium-sized spoon pen, with a large ink capacity, a firm feel, and some flexibility. The upturned tip prevents the point from catching on paper—a common feature on ordinary writing pens of the day.
Thanks to the protective coating applied to all dip pens (even new ones produced today), these pens are in excellent vintage condition. They've been checked for rust and other defects by our experts and are ready to return to service on your desk.
As with any dip pen, you will need to remove the protective coating so that ink will stick to the nib consistently. To remove the coating, simply dip your new pen in ink a couple of times and wipe it off. Repeat until the ink coats the nib completely and doesn't bead up. This process takes about 15 seconds and only needs to be done once, before you use the pen for the first time.
