On Point With Go Pens #55

On Point

My dad just gave me some of his old fountain pens. Is it safe to polish the silver cover on them?

The silver cover on the barrels is usually overlay. Some people like to polish the metals on their pens to keep them looking new, and others like them to develop a patina. It’s entirely up to you. Polish gently with the appropriate cloths for the materials on your pen, and you’ll have a shiny pen in no time!
