Great ink - shame about the bottle

This is strongly coloured ink, in a lovely shade between blue and black. It tones beautifully with a wide nib, and runs smoothly. It's not waterproof (and it didn't promise to be). The problem is the bottle: (1) it does not say on the outside what colour the ink is (2) the inside sealing disk on the lid is fastened with a glutinous substance that gradually came unstuck. Eventually the sealing disk came away and could not be replaced. The lid was not ink-proof without it. Keeping the bottle always upright is not an option for me as I carry ink in my briefcase - so I've had to transfer it to another bottle. (3) The bottle is wide and has a flat bottom, which makes it hard to fill from when the ink level falls.

    VAT (at 20%) is automatically taken off for destinations outside the UK. Note that if you are ordering within the EU you will have to pay VAT when your parcel arrives.

    Nib choices for fountain pens
    If we show the pen with the default nib selection shown in stock it means we have stock of that pen. If you select another nib size and the website doesn't say "in stock" we can usually supply that pen immediately as we keep extensive supplies of nibs from all our manufacturers.
