Flexpert Adapter with custom converter for 2018 Scholar models
In 2019, we had changed the threading for the 2019 Scholar to be able to fit the same Flexpert unit as the Milano.
This flexpert unit is fitted with a special SECTION adapter that allows one to retrofit the flexpert to their 2018 or prior year Osprey Pens Scholar models.This special insert is for Osprey Scholar models from 2017-2018 (no engraving on cap or clip). 2019 Osprey Scholar models can be identified through the distinctive engraving on Cap or clip.
Soak the feed and nib in a pen cleaning solution or a solution with some tap water and liquid dish-washing detergent, ideally an alkaline-based or grease-cutting version. If household ammonia is available, add a few drops, if not, just soap solution should be fine. Using an old toothbrush or cleaning brush with nylon bristles (no wire brushes please), scrub the feed of any residue until the channels (grooves on the feed) are free of any ink or pigment. Inspect the nib for signs of corrosion. If corroded, replace it with a new nib.
*If you get silicone grease on your feed or very strong ink residue, a stronger cleaning solution of 1/3 Ammonia and 2/3 cups water has shown to really help with functioning and flow for your flexpert unit.
**Spare Osprey Flexpert custom converters are now available through special order. This option allows users of the flexpert unit to order replacement Flexpert Converters over time.
Recommended Ink for Flexpert Unit: Noodler's Standard black (The Osprey 2019 Flexpert unit as of 11/11/2019 will be provided with a free sample of 2ml Noodler's black standard ink. This will allow the customer to test the purchased ink with the same ink that we used for "Flow & Railroad" testing on the Zebra G Flexpert. If you would like to purchase additional Noodler’s ink Standard Black 2ml Sample vials with your your flexpert, you can add them to your cart. Please make sure to flush your Osprey Pens Flexpert unit with ammonia or Pen Flush each time you switch inks. We ask that you first try the sample vial provided before other inks because Noodler's standard black washes out so easily.
