I have 3 old English fountain pens that were given to me a while back. They've sat in my desk drawer for a few years.
I have done a few searches here and I've learned a bit about these brands, but I'm wondering if anyone has any comment on these specific models.
I'm most intrigued by the Onoto, as it has a good feel and weight to it. I'd like to clean it out and see how it performs, but I'm out of my depth with an old pen like these. Any suggestions on how to clean? I don't know how the ink system works or if there is any special way to clean the pen.
Is there anything I should do given the pens' age? Again, the Onoto is the main interest.
What about values? Is there a way to determine what these pens are worth?
Thank very much in advance.
