Product Questions

1. Forward the lead longer than the tip and pull it out from the tip
(The lead is very thin and easy to break. Please pull it put carefully)

 
2. Push the tip into the pencil and twist the cone and separate it from the barrel

*If it’s too slippy to twist the cone, you could try with elastic bands

3. Clean off the gold part and the silver part around it inside with a tissue paper or a soft paper

4. Twist back the cone until it gets tighten

5. Remove the cap and the eraser, and shake off the pencil on a paper to remove any leads that are left inside

6. Refill with 2-3 new leads and test writing

*Please make sure to use new leads.
*Please use Pentel Ain STEIN C273 for Pentel Orenz Nero.

It may be caused by lead jams. Here is the instruction how to remove lead jams.

1. Twist the cone and separate it from the barrel

*If it’s too slippy to twist the cone, you could try with elastic bands

2. Please use Pentel lead 0.3mm. Insert a lead from the tip to push out the jammed lead

4. Twist back the cone until it gets tighten

*Please put both eraser and cap back to the pencil before testing the lead to come out. If you put only the eraser back into the barrel, it could stuck inside.
*Please refer to the user manual and follow the instructions. Please refill 2-3 leads into the pencil at a time.
*Please use Pentel Ain STEIN C273 for Pentel Orenz Nero.

The ink blobs may be due to how you write with the pen. Oil-based ballpoint pens like the Vicuna require medium pressure to be applied onto the paper while writing, so that the oil-based ink (which is thicker than gel ink) can dispense evenly.
On the other hand, our Energel pens have a much lower ink viscosity. This means Energel requires less pressure when writing compared to Vicuna.

If pens are not stored properly such as keeping the pen with the tip facing up, small air bubbles may enter the ink cartridge and prevent ink from dispensing properly. This can be resolved by continuing to write or scribble on regular paper to allow the air to escape from the cartridge.

To clear the lead jam you can unscrew the top and clear out the debris from inside.

(Photos are Kerry P1035)

1. This is the pencil once it is taken apart.

2. This is the inner tube with the spring, if you push the spring down the mechanism will release the lead holder and you can clear the debris.

3. This is the top of the pencil, there may be debris stuck in here as well. If you can see the small hole inside the part as shown in the photo this means the part is clear. If the hole isn’t visible gently take a small pin and clear the debris.
