I have a Sheaffer Tuckaway pen of my father's, c. 1944-1945. It was recently professionally restored and I need to know the best ink to use in this type of pen. Is Noodler's Eel safe? Monteverde or Herbin? Do I need to use, or avoid lubricated ink for this pen?20191013_175938.jpg

I will use Sheaffer Ink. If  a pen has affective value for me ,I try to keep it as original as possible . I use Parker ink  in Parker 51 and Mont Blanc in MB pens but I have use Herbin without any problem in many pens.

I have nothing constructive to add ink wise (sorry) 


I just wanted to stop in and say that i think triumph nibs look awesome, and its even more awesome that you've had one of your dad's pens restored :)

Just give me the Parker 51s and nobody needs to get hurt.

Sheaffers or Watermans would be the conservative choices. There is a reason so many competent restorers use Serenity Blue as their testing ink.

Vintage. Cursive italic. Iron gall.
