    Koh-I-Noor rapidograph pens

    I have a question regarding cleaning Koh-I-Noor Rapidiograph pens. I love the pens and think if taken care of properly they are worth the trouble. Unfortunately I have a couple of pens that the ink has dried up and I used the cleaning syringe and can't seem to resurrect it. If anyone knows of a tip or trick to revive them I would appreciate it. I hate to toss them because I neglect leaving ink inside them.

    Try soaking the parts in windex, perhaps. I haven't tried this, but I recall someone talking about doing this.

    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    Yeah that tutorial that you posted ronDomingue is spot on. I've been using this method of cleaning Rapidographs since I've owned them. I've had the same set for over 15 years now.
