    Sheaffer's Skrip Writing Fluid

    Good morning, all. I just acquired a partial bottle of Sheaffer's Skrip "writing fluid" from a lady who was going to toss it. Question: How do I use the bottle? It has an interesting top that I'm not familiar with. Any help would be appreciated. I've attached an image of it.
  3. Various people including myself have had good luck with buying replacement lids for our vintage Sheaffer ink bottles from BottleSolutions.com, but they've been taken over by Pipeline Packaging, a similar company in the same city, it looks like the relevant link for jar lids is this although the parts numbers don't seem to have stayed the same so I can't really make any promises: https://www.pipelinepackaging.com/closures BottleSolutions.com was the old site but it redirects to a post announcing the takeover, and I'm not quite sure how to shop on the Packaging Pipeline site, they may need t

    Ink Smells Strange

    I just opened my bottle of Lamy Black ink I bought two years ago. I have been using it since, and is currently in my Pilot Metropolitan. But it smells really bad, and I'm worried that something has happened to the ink. The smell is somewhat like cut grass. The converter in my Metro does not have that smell, but the bottle does. Anyone know what I should do?
  6. Hi Everyone, It's been a while since I've been on this site! I've just finished another Sailor Ink Vase/Jewel Bottle and wanted to offer it as a PIF since a few people had signed up for the last one. I will cover the shipping via USPS ground, so unfortunately I can only open this to the US. If you are interested, please let me know by end of day next Saturday 7/13. I will post a winner on Sunday and ship the empty bottle on Monday. Thank you!

    Mabie Todd & Co 'swan' Ink

    I recently went down to an antique shop and I happened to find some 'Swan' Ink bottles, made by Mabie Todd & Co in Sydney Australia. One bottle was labeled "PERMANENT BLUE BLACK" while the other was "VIVID RED". They appear to have what is most likely dried ink in them, though there is a chance that the permanent blue-black one contains iron oxide sediment at the bottom considering it is most likely an iron gall ink. Is it possible that I could receive some information on them (there doesn't appear to be much about it online), as well as whether it is safe to reconstitute the ink inside of

    Ferris Wheel Press?

    Anyone heard of Ferris Wheel Press inks? (Or pens, for that matter?) There was a Kickstarter for their inks a while back that would likely be going out to backers shortly, and you can apparently pre-order via their IndieGoGo campaign. I'd only just heard of it yesterday and I must admit that I was instantly smitten with, of all things, the bottle the ink comes in In spite of the "most magical FP ink" billing, the colors aren't particularly grabbing my attention, but that's possibly just my monitor not doing it justice, and the only review I could find was this at Gourmet Pens. Apart from a
  10. Hi everyone, I was wondering if I was about to commit what some of you might call a "crime against humanity", do you think it is sacrilegious to remove the label from an old Sheaffer Skrip Bottle that has an inkwell? I intend to use the bottle for storing different black inks and I mostly bought it for utilitarian purposes because it is great design and bottles like that just aren't made anymore. But I also know it's place in history and was wondering if I was about to ruin an object that has in some sense, historical significance even if it is still quite common... Here's what it looks
  11. My question is simple--does such a thing exist? I fell down a rabbit hole of looking at ink blotters the other day, shortly after crawling out of a rabbit hole of looking at inks (and their cute little bottles), and it struck me that a lot of the smaller rocker blotters kind of have a profile that could be the shape of a bottle. I tried Googling, and the closest thing I could find to a bottle in that shape is this half moon bottle, and it's definitely not suitable for holding ink with that narrow opening, nor for blotting being that it is so narrow overall. Just about all of what I come ac

    15 Ml Glass Bottles

    As my ink collection continues to grow, I'm getting more concerned about contaminating my supply. The germaphobe in me is a little anxious about dipping a nib into a nearly full 3 oz. bottle of water-based ink. Plus, if I knock over a 1/2 oz. bottle of ink, I'll be less angry with myself than if I spill 3 ounces of Apache Sunset all over my desk. Anyone know a good source for smaller glass bottles? I've been on the hunt (on Amazon) for some 10 to 15 ml glass bottles for decanting ink, but most of the reviews I've seen are very mixed: cracked or poorly fitting caps. I also plan to keep
  14. Hey everyone! I just got this idea and tried it. I am new to fountain pens and have some ink bottles that are taller than I would like. I am a klutz so I tried to figure out how to keep the bottles (ahem, Noodler's, ahem) from tipping over while I was filling them. I took the box the ink came in and use only one other piece of cardboard to make this pretty stable stand for my Noodler's ink. It is as simple as cutting the box down a bit, folding over the sides and taping the flaps to a square piece of cardboard. I have included a graphic and two images of what I came up with. I used
  15. Here's my scans of Monteverde Brown both bottle and cartridge. I was excited when I got the carts as the packaging had "copyright 2010" on it, possibly the original formula but in testing it sure seems to be the same as the bottled ink. With the bottle ink, I had bad problem with hard starts and really bad skipping on block letters with first 2 pens I tried, a Kaweco Sport M and a Hemisphere M (wasn't as bad with cursive's long, continuous strokes). Had same problem with Jinhao Safari M so tried a Luxor Vector and it worked perfectly there. But I left the Jinhao sit overnight and when I trie

    Pilot Black In A Cartridge V. In A Bottle

    Does anyone have any experience with using Pilot Black ink from a cartridge and Pilot Black ink from a bottle? I mostly want to know if they are the same formulation or if the cartridge ink is different from the bottled Pilot Black ink. Thanks for any information on this.

    Ink Stores In India?

    Hey hi! Thanks for taking interest. Could anyone help me out with ink stores in India? I would prefer the ones who give an option to order online. (Of course, I cannot travel all of India just for some ink bottles :/ ) I live in a small town & all that is available here is Camlin Blue & Red inks. If you are lucky, you may find Parker Quinky. I'm looking for inkwells up to INR 500 but cannot find stores. I have been swarming the internet since last week but to no good. I've been through pensavenvue.com, pensindia.com & of course snapdeal, flipkart, ebay and amazon. Here's wh
  19. Hey there! I am looking for inks which can be used in a professional setting but have a tiny bit of fun with them. For me, these inks should be very dark, so that by not taking a closer look you could mistake them for a blue or even black ink, but at a second glance you can see a tiny pop of color. So almost black, but with something extra. Some inks that could be used as examples: - Noodler's red-black - Mont Blanc British Racing Green - maybe Mont Blanc Albert Einstein I am happy to hear your suggestions, as I am not that knowledgable about all the inks yet, and I am sure you

    Has Parker Changed Quink Bottle Design?

    While googling, got this different image of Parker Quink bottle. I haven't seen this before. Is this new design?
  21. This might seem like a very, very stupid question and I am sure the solution must be staring me right in the face, but what the heck do you use to hold the ink for an oblique holder dip pen? It's really frustrating me! I have a few dip pens and recently picked up an oblique holder and some nice bouncy flexible nibs. So long as the ink bottle is close to full it's fine, but it won't go deep into the bottle; what do you put the ink in?
  22. Hey guys! I'm not sure whether anyone has ever brought this topic up before (if so, I'm sorry). I ordered J. Herbin inks in two batches, both from different retailers, and my local retailer sent me bottles with plastic caps on them whereas the one in the Netherlands sent ones with metal caps (and they had stickers on the back with serial numbers, the ones from my local retailer didn't). So I was wondering whether J. Herbin made this change (a few years back maybe? because I suspect the ones I got locally are old stock). Thank you in advance

    Visconti Ink Bottle(S) Dimensions

    Hi, I purchased an antique inkwell in the shape of a knight's helmet (with neck). It has no liner but a 'martini glass' shaped Visconti ink bottle may fit perfectly. Would someone be so kind as to measure their Visconti bottle(s) for me and post up the dimensions please? I know they have a variety of versions in glass and plastic. I'm seeking the base diameter, height to first curve outward, height to maximum curve outward, total height including lid, and maximum diameter of the bottle towards the top. It would be helpful if a pic were able to be posted to show me which edition of the bott
  24. Hi everyone! I've been lurking around FPN for a while now, and this is my first post! I wanted to share something interesting about the Quink Permanent Blue. I couldn't find any green Quink anywhere, so I tried calling Parker to see if they stocked it, or could point me to a retailer that did. They didn't and told me all they had was black and permanent blue. I had always wondered why permanent blue had "permanent" in its name when it is not waterproof at all, and fades fairly easily. So I asked them, and got an interesting answer. Apparently the "permanent" Quinks have metal incorpora
