About This Product
Made in Northern Italy, Eva Extra #318 is a broad-tipped writing pen with a large body, flat wings, and a large, rectangular vent hole. Similar to the "post office pens" made by English manufacturers of the time, the Extra #318 was meant for quick, loose handwriting. A light touch is required to write neatly, since this nib is softer than other post office nibs.
Thanks to the protective coating applied to all dip pens (even new ones produced today), these 70-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 Italy.
