Hello,
I'm am new to this forum.
I bought a Tintenkuli and would like some information on it. I have read a post from this website about the history of the pen, but would like to find some instructions. So far I have seen some pictures of the original instructions on eBay but they are in German. I am sure it is a piston driven pen becaus there is a twist knob at the end of the pen. How does that work? Where the ink go in through? The tip or just behind the tip?
Any info would help. Please point me in the rite direction.
I would appreciate it.
Thank you

The ink goes in just behind the cone that holds the writing tube. Bythe way, you can screw it out like a FP's nibunit for cleaning. In principle there is a thin wire inside the tube for supporting the cappilar effect for the inkflow toward the tip of the inktube. They write with no pressure when in good conition- in fact pressure can easily destroy the tube. You can fill it up like any pistonfiller.

There is a picture of the instruction sheet in more than one language in this old ebay auction

Scratchofapen, thank you.
That explains a lot. I wasn't dipping the pen in enough to get ink in it, since it pulls behind the cone, not the tip.
Thanks again

Stylographic pens were the forerunners of fountain pens, available at least in the 1870's.


German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

Hello Ancient Artifact,

 

I owned a Tintekuli (Tiku) - but lost it. Therefore intend to buy one. Do you suggest a place that I can buy a Tintenkuli.I heard there was a remake by Visconti in 1998 limited edition.

 

thanks
