Several people have asked about the dip nib annealing process that I’ve mentioned, particularly in regards to the now sold out Hunt Mapping Pens.
I found this great video on YouTube (thank you for not making me have to make one, ElisaAnne!) on the process.
If you are fire-averse, there are other techniques you can try including potatoes, toothpaste, or in a pinch, spit.
If you’ve had success removing oil from dip nibs, please leave a comment below. And a quick reminder, this is for dip nibs only and not to be tried with fountain pen nibs!
