Hi Folks,
I have a number of Platinum short pens with both 18K and 14K gold nibs.  Do you think these pens would be safe with Diamine Registrar's ink?   Wondering about the ink attacking something inside the pen.

These pens work with a cartridge.

 

Cheers,

GreenMountain.

Slightly off topic, but check your Registrar's ink for precipitate solids before you fill your pen.  I've tossed two bottles this year, one had never been opened.

Oh, good to know.  So far I've only used it with dip pens...no trouble with those;)  

 

I fill my pens / cartridges with a medical syringe, so until I get down to the bottom I wouldn't think I'd suck up any solids even if there were precipitants.

May have a problem with steel connector ring, in case some ink leak from cartridge and touch that part.

Yes, that was what I was worried about...don't really know what's inside, but if it's steel, then I understand it might be a problem. 

Thanks!
