Instructions 1987
Basic Calligraphy Set“Your pen can be used with either squeezefill or cartridge, every Osmiroid Fountain Pen is supplied with a squeezefill unit, every Cartridge Pen is supplied with four cartridges.
Squeezefill Model
“To fill your pen, use finger and thumb of both hands, press and release your squeezefill SLOWLY four or five times, count up to five before withdrawing the pen from the ink bottle; this gives time for the ink sac to fill.”
Cartridge Model
“Cartridges should be loaded small end first and firmly pushed into the back of the nib unit. Alternatively place a second cartridge in the pen barrel (as in diagram) and screw barrel onto the nib unit.”
cartridge diagram
Starting Your Pen
“It is sometimes necessary to start your pen, to do this gently squeeze the cartridge or squeezefill until ink appears on the underside of the nib.”
Care of Your Pen
