More info

Fine 12000 grade abrasive cloth for smoothing (polishing) nibs. Useful for reducing "feedback" or "tooth" from a nib point and for general final smoothing and polishing. Long lasting and can be rinsed with water to clean.

WARNING:
You can ruin a nib with the incorrect use of any type of abrasive material. Do not use unless you are experienced. To gain experience, practice on inexpensive pens first (pens that you wouldn't be upset if you ruined). Also, take note of the following advice:

  • Check nib alignment first with a good magnifier (10x or 15x is recommended). A scratchy nib can usually be fixed by correcting alignment. Do not attempt to use any abrasive material on a nib until alignment has been checked.
  • For best results, use wet (eg with ink in the pen) to provide lubrication.
  • Avoid pressure. Use gentle circular or straight line motion, making sure you keep moving the pen/nib to avoid too much abrasion in one point.
  • Have a notebook with you on the bench. Make a few movements on the sheet and keep testing as you go.
  • Remember, once tipping material is removed, it cannot be put back!
  • If in doubt, send your pen to an experienced pen repairer.

Note that using Micro Mesh or similar abrasives on a brand new pen is likely to void your warranty.

Nib choices for fountain pens
If we show the pen with medium nib in stock it means we have stock of that pen. If you select another nib size and the website doesn't say "in stock" we can usually supply that pen immediately as we keep extensive supplies of nibs from all our manufacturers
