Are Lamy Studios Easy To Clean?

In particular, are they as easy to clean as Safaris / Vistas? I have a Vista dedicated to Rouge Hematite, which eventually gunks up but is very easy to clean, I got a a Studio will eventually get to me, and have to decide if I keep Rouge Hematite in the safe pen or use it in the Studio...

Studio has same filling mechanism as safari. So it is easy to clean. It uses same feed as safari and I was successful in removing and refitting it too like safari. So I find no difference in cleaning efforts between studio and safari.

Hi Pseudo88,

 

Yes. As noted above; same configuration, so it's also easy to clean.

 

With an ink like that, though; I would run the section under a luke-warm tap for a couple of minutes, (or give it a couple of full bulbs with an ear syringe), to get the bulk of the ink out; then let it soak overnight in plain water or a 10% clear ammonia solution... and then flush it under the tap, (or bulb syringe), again.

 

Then finish using an USC filled with distilled water as a final rinse... wick the nib with a Kleenex, (if you still get color on the Kleenex - run it through the USC again), and then it let air dry for 24 hrs.

 

Be well. :)

Thanks, that's what I do (except the distilled water bit, don't have any around). Rouge hematite in particular requires soaking overnight.

I find my Studio easy to clean, although I find most C/C easy to clean.

 

 

Thanks, because rouge hematite is such a high maintenance ink, I'd rather have something I know how to take apart easily; for instance I'm not sure my Mujis are as easy to disassemble.
