How (not) to restore engraved letters on pens?

First, let’s see what you came here for and if you’re interested in my ramblings they are marked with italics at each step.

WARNING: Do this at your own risk, you may damage your pen in the process.

The tools you will need:

  • White Oil Pastel (this is going to be the new paint filling)
  • Microfiber cloth (to clean off the pen)
  • Sewing needle (to remove the original paint filling from the engraving)
  • Paint brush (to clean the original paint filling as you are removing it from the engraving)
  • Jeweler’s Loupe (to actually see what you are doing – I used a Schweizer Tech-Line x10)
  • Optional: Macro photo camera (to have an even better look and to record your progress)

The too long; didn’t read version is:

  • Step 1: Identify the problem
  • Step 2: Remove the old filling
  • Step 3: Apply new filling
  • Step 4: Profit?
