If you haven't already discovered this, Paddy Pallin which is a nationwide (capital cities at least) hiking/adventure/camping store, have these in stock, and in the small sizes suitable for ink storage (usual disclaimer applies). I wouldn't be surprised if other similar-type shops have them too, or something similar. These are the different sizes that I bought yesterday: From left to right we have: 1 oz/30 ml jar, ideal for dip pens ($3.50);1 oz/30 ml wide round bottle ($2.95);1/2 oz/15 ml narrow round bottle($2.45);1/4 oz/8 ml narrow round bottle ($1.95).They are also available in square and rectangular shapes, but I think these round ones are probably better for ink, and the necks of the bottles are just right for pen nibs to fit. The prices above are AUD, naturally. Paddy Pallin can be found online at: http://www.paddypallin.com.au/ (again, usual disclaimer). Cheers, Effrafax. [Edited to fix incorrect price.]
These superb quality bottles don't need any introduction to FPN members and we're delighted to be stocking them. We'll have 30ml and 60ml sizes in stock very soon. http://www.justwrite.com.au/nalgene-15ml-ink-carry-bottle-amber/ I should add that is $AUD2.20 ... about $USD1.73 and the Amber are more expensive than the regular translucent.
New_Falcon posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopHello All, Recently, I've been using my Lamy 2000 a lot and in my Falcon moved over to using the cartridge converter. Doing that inevitably comes up with having ink reserves in case you run out in the office or at home or out and about. I'm probably not like most on FPN in that I only have one bottle of ink and when I'm down to the end of that I go buy another one. My typical ink usage is for the Lamy a week and the Falcon about 4 days. Anyway I found some Nalgene 1oz wide mouth locally and had been using that. Saying that though it bugged me that there were a lot of recommendations for the 1/2oz size. I think OcalaFlGuy even said "...1/2 oz, 15 ml, narrow mouth Nalgene bottles. Period. Just Trust Me on this...." From here. I hope that link works. Anyway I managed to find the 1/2oz in a little camping store. Mr OcalaFlGuy should be trusted on this. Height wise there's not that much difference, but the differnce in width is significant. The 1oz, is not bulky or awkward, but you do know if you have it in a pants pocket or a jacket. The 1/2oz you don't even realise you have them. As I said I don't really go through ink too fast but would like to have some with me when I go travelling. Looking for the 1/2 oz is definitely worth it. I'm guessing that I'll be able to get a good 10 refills out of this, which in my case is about 2 1/2 months. They're a little harder to find locally, REI and the container store have the 1oz and above, but the 1/2 oz is just such a convenient size and I don't really need the 30mls of ink the 1oz would give me, when travelling. P.S. I'm sure lot's of other FPN'ers have recommended the 15oz, it's just that the post from Mr. OcalaFlGuy stuck in my mind.
