A budget-friendly fountain pen out of Germany, the Super5 has been recently updated with various body colors and nib sizes—all featuring the writing power of the original. The torpedo-shaped barrel is made of smooth, lightweight plastic, as is the click-on cap, while both the grip and clip are made of painted metal for added weight and durability. The Super5 accepts standard international ink cartridges and converters, and comes fitted with your choice of nibs. There are two calligraphy nib sizes, as well as two standard writing sizes, all of which perform well for everyday writing and sketching. The ink feed system is designed to flow without skipping or blotting, making this a great pen for anyone who loves precise writing.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of body color (black, blue, dark red, green, orange, transparent, or white) and nib size (0.5mm calligraphy, 0.7mm calligraphy, 1mm medium, or 1.5mm broad). You can also add a 5ml packet of Super5 fountain pen cleaner (+ $3) and a converter (+ $5.50).
Developed to clean any kind of ink from fountain pens, the Super5 cleaner is especially good at cleaning Super5 waterproof ink. It dissolves ink in the collector, feed, and converter, even if it’s been there for months, and won’t corrode the paint or plastic parts of your pen. Plus, because it’s packaged in 5-milliliter packets, the cleaner is easy to bring wherever you go. When you’re ready to use it, simply mix the contents of one packet with 50 to 100 milliliters of water, so that the ratio of concentrate to water is between 1:5 and 1:10.
