About This Product
This short, chrome-finish stub pen is an excellent writer with a smooth feel and surprisingly good ink capacity for its short size. Made in Barcelona around 1940, the Corte Español #5 was part of Boira's range of stub pens in a variety of widths. We like this one for correspondence and sketching, with a downstroke width around 1.5 mm.
Thanks to the protective coating applied to all dip pens (even new ones produced today), these 80-year-old 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.
Sold individually. Made in Spain.
