^ That's good to know.  And that's with the acrylic based inks in them?

Yep, that's with Rohrer & Klingner acrylic based inks.

Okay, I used to have the Letter Writers Alliance and The Snail Mail Exchange in here. Somehow, my browsers settings and the forum's settings work together to prevent that from being the case at the moment. Whenever I try to update my signature, the whole process breakls down. So. Whatever.

I have not used acrylic ink in my technical pens, but if I were to try, I'd only use the ones that also say they are safe for air-brushing. Acrylic inks come in a variety of pigment size. Safe to say you only want small enough pigments ☺ Rotring ink also has pigments.
I'd be worried about dried ink, because I tend to use the pens infrequently, but if you clean them well enough I doubt there will be problems.
