Earlier this year I acquired a Burnham 56, and it came with the very useful caution about not soaking it. All or some parts of it are made of casein, which I understand is not water resistant in any way. However, this pen needs cleaning and I'm wondering what the best process might be; I don't have an ultrasonic cleaner, so I'm looking for a simple process.
The section of this Burnham can be unscrewed from its barrel. I'm not sure if that feature would make a difference in how to clean this pen, and I am also not certain what part/s of the pen include casein. It is lever-filled so I know it's important to also avoid getting any moisture in the lever. Any advice would be terrific.
I also want to deliver a huge 'thank-you' to everyone in FPN! I'm not always a frequent reader but I have so enjoyed the posts and advice and the wonderful community that comes with FPN.
Best holiday wishes!
