About This Product
The Lanciere 304F is an Italian dip pen from the early 20th century. The "crown pen" shape seen here was a popular writing pen of its day. The middle section features crown-shaped cutouts that offer a comfortable flex, but unlike other flexible nibs, you don't need perfect hand control to use it. That's because the tines are less flexible than the middle, producing stylish but limited line variation.
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.
