The cap, which is placed mainly on the body of the pen, is the part of the fountain pen that covers the tip and prevents the pen from bending if it falls from a surface. Some manufacturers, such as Platinum, have also developed their caps to prevent ink from drying out in the pen. See Platinum Slip & (sealing mechanism). Most covers consist of a clip, a flap, a cover band and an inner cover.
The clip allows you to attach the pen to a pocket, cover or item of clothing. However, some caps don't come with a clip and are usually advertised as “no clip”. The finish comes on top of the cap and helps keep the clip in place. The cover band helps keep the inner cover in place.
The inner cover remains inside the lid and allows you to place the ever-popular “snap-in cover”. In addition, the inner caps help keep the ink fresh and ready to use. Placing the cap on the back of the pen is called publishing. Covering the pen is what people might call this action.
The fountain pen is called unplaced or uncapped when the cap is not on. The style of the pen can influence whether it should be placed or not. The writing process will improve if you place the cap on the back of the fountain pen. Some models are made to leave the fountain pen cap unattached.
Some fountain pens have their thread on the front of the section. In the example in photo 1, the thread is excessively long and moves the grip area away from the tip of the tip of the tip of the tip, which causes the pen to require more pressure when writing to modify the writing width. Some people like to place the cap on the back of the fountain pen to create a different balance, since fountain pens come with a cap. The fountain pen in place can cause problems for people with large hands who hold the pen farther from the tip.
From a technical point of view, many inventions have been applied to the lid, almost always related to the way in which it can be opened or closed (locking, screw, clasp, now also magnetic) and, sometimes, also to the way in which it can be inserted into the lower part of the pen to balance the weight or size of the pen, as in the case of the Pilot Elite (but there are many precursors) in which for the use of the pen it was necessary to put the cap on because it was a necessary extension of the body. The pen also has a good balance and writing with the pen in the long run will not cause any fatigue. If properly sized, the inner cover could contain all the ink that the fountain pen would discharge in unfortunate situations and, as long as the pen wasn't open or if the conscious writer opened it with the tip down, the ink could be prevented from spilling out. In my opinion, writers with fountain pens are rather patient, otherwise they wouldn't write with fountain pens.
You must put the cap on the back of the pen to create a balance and that is the art of placing with a fountain pen. They can be due to the pressure exerted on the body of the pen by the edge of the cap or by the ink inside the cap of the pen. Experiment and find out how long the pen can stay open before the ink darkens or the pen becomes reluctant. It's important for fountain pen enthusiasts because different types of paper have different textures and these can affect the feel of each pen.
If a placed fountain pen falls, it will fall on the heavier side, the one with the cap, instead of damaging the tip of the pen. The larger the tip, the better it will be to write with it; in addition, the pens of the more expensive fountain pens are larger than those of the cheaper fountain pens. When a pen is removed from a pocket located on the lid, as is the case in most cases, the axial force that occurs between the cap and the pen can be greater than the holding capacity of the sliding clutch.
