It's a great way to browse photos of pens, inks and other writing-related themes. Please tag us (@twdpens) in your own photos.
Top Tip:
Some manufacturers' ink bottles have internal ink-wells to help you fill your pen even when the level gets low. Look at Lamy, Namiki, Visconti, Sailor and the Erka-Rapid from Rohrer and Klingner. Other bottles can be tipped on their side, for example Kaweco, Pelikan 4001 and Waterman.
