Ive been working with some old gold dip pens, and I managed to get my greedy little hands on a pen with a Leroy Fairchild nib: a Number Six. Ive bought a couple of large-scale nibs, but its hard to find them in a usable state. This one, however, is. But its size creates its own problems: the inks I have are too thin to pool nicely in the tines. I have a bottle of Platinum iron-gall, but all my other nibs prefer Pelikan Edelstein Smoky Quartz, which isnt an IG but just works really well and gives my most frivolous jottings the patina of age. So I ask the ink fancy: recommend me an ink for this monster. Whats out there? Many thanks.
