About This Product
Made in Birmingham, England—the world capital of the steel pen trade in the early 20th century—the Geo. W. Hughes "Ajusto" stub is a great everyday writer. Medium width, with a unique upturned flat tip (check out the 1926 advertisement in our product photos to get a closer look at the shape!). Quite a smooth writer, just as the Hughes company advertised in the 1920s.
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.
