    Have you had any burping issues with your eyedroppered Franklin-Christophs? I’ve been meaning to try it with my Model 20.

      I haven’t myself, but I think the strategy is to keep the barrel more than 1/3 full. I’ve written eyedropper fills dry without burping problems, but I also work “from home” so I don’t expose my pens to as much temperature change, which I think can also cause some burping issues. Good luck! (If you try it..)

      I eyedropper my Franklin-Christoph pocket 66 and write it dry every time with no problems. I inked up my 45 yesterday and have already written it half-way down, no burping. These pens are designed to be eye-droppered, you should be fine. Make sure you grease the threads on the section as well as the base of the nib housing unit.

      Hi there,

      I’ve eyedroppered three FCs now and had no issues with them even when they run extremely low on ink. They come with me to work every week and sit in a little pen pouch on my hip. There can be condensation from body heat but I haven’t encountered any burping since I first started carrying them in November.

    Just picked mine up this morning, so chuffed to have an exclusive pen from my favourite shop by my favourite pen maker! I’m going to eyedropper it with J. Herbin Lie de Thé.

    Congrats! This is a very special thing indeed 🙂 Thanks for collaborating on such an awesome look – I’d been waiting for F-C’s next release of any pen with an Antique Glass material, but then I saw yours and thought it looked so awesome I just had to go for it instead. My very first F-C has been made possible because of you – thanks!! I can’t wait until it arrives 😀

    One thing that wasn’t clear to me when ordering is the nibs – are they actual F-C HPSteel nibs with the F-C logo like in the pictures? I didn’t see a place to buy different F-C nibs through you – is that possible?

    Thanks!

      Thank you so much! What an honour to be part of your first F-C – although I think sometimes with these beauties, one can get you started down quite a rabbit hole 🙂

      The nibs are F-C nibs, checked in house by them before they’re sent to us. They are just like they are in the photo. We do have a few spare nibs, both in the No.5 and No.6 size we can sell to you (we mostly use them for swapping out in pens, and for those who just want an extra nib for their pen). Send us an email info@wonderpens.ca and we can set you up! 🙂
