Pineider is pleased to present a new Avatar, which defines the state of the art of the fountain pen and establishes a new reference for all those who make the pen an inseparable writing tool.
Avatar Twin Tank Touchdown adds to the typical features of the line, material resistance, magnetic closure, clips with refined mechanics, a refined and avant-garde filling system.
The new Avatar features a vacuum filling system, Twin Tank Touchdown, which allows two writing positions, short writing and long writing, which are activated thanks to an ingenious mechanism inside the caseback. In other words, the pen has two twin tanks, a large one that serves as a reserve and a small one that is always connected to the nib.
The bayonet caseback closure system, an integral part of the filling mechanism, is, at the same time, simple, ingenious and efficient. It allows you to open and close the ink passage quickly and intuitively.
After loading the pen from the inkwell, both tanks will be filled but only the contents of the first tank will be used, the smaller one always connected to the nib as in any other pen but with a size equal to 25% of a standard cartridge. This eliminates the risk of accidental leaks.
Once exhausted, if you want to reload the writing reservoir, then the front tank is enough to rotate the bottom counterclockwise a few degrees and a spring will pop up the mechanism in the open position. To force the ink towards the nib, if necessary, you can press down the 2 or 3 times. To return it to the closed position, press the bottom again, making sure that the pawls are aligned, and rotate it a few degrees, about ¼ of a turn, until the reference coincides with the LOCK position.
It is suggested to keep the small tank always full, thus avoiding the losses caused by the variation in atmospheric pressure, because it does not contain air.If you want you can choose to simply keep it empty, filling it only when you want to write.
