Please note: This is a decorative piece only. Pen’s actual writing ability varies from: writes beautifully to doesn’t write at all. Metal nib tip pen is recommended for frequent writing.
The porcupine point options may require the very end tips to be clipped at an angle from bottom 1/32″ to the tip before the first use to achieve a suitable ink flow with thicker inks. Try various brands of ink with the porcupine point quill if you intend to use it for writing to find the best ink flow consistency.
Each quill is unique from the next, as the feathers are natural and not 100% identical. They may have separations, thinning at the tip, waves, curls, be thinner, fuller, longer, shorter than one another or be from a left wing or right wing.
WARNING: It is very important that you do not keep the quill stored in ink in an inkwell, as I have found, India Ink will eat through the metal nib and completely through the porcupine quill tip.
