Have You Seen The New Ink Miser Inkwells?

Luxury Brands Ink Miser Inkwell videos.

 

The Intra-Bottle Inkwell is good for getting that last drop of Noodler's from bottle to pen. That is assuming you ever empty one of those 3 ounce bottles which is something I have yet to do.

 

Besides the uses shown in the videos, soaking a pen just up to the nib would be a really good use for the Ink-Shot. I might just need a row of these to clean pens after paper tests.

How much are they? Can I buy them by the gross?

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I saw the link shared on FB, but was unable to find any information other than a couple of images and a brief description.

 

The video you linked to suggests visiting luxurybrands.com, but that domain appears to be for sale.

MSRP for Intra-Bottle Inkwell is $5 and $6 for Ink-Shot.

 

Buying by the gross, indeed!

The URL is http://luxurybrandsusa.com/ though there is nothing on the site about the new products yet. They were only announced Saturday, so you might want to nudge your favorite retailer to place an order with the distributor.

Yikes. Half the cost of a bottle of Noodler's for a little plastic insert?

Wow, that website hasn't been updated in 20 months, and the YouTube channel looks like it's 3 days old. Sounds like they could use a little social marketing help.

Yeah, but assuming the device saves you 4 ml of ink, you'll make your money back after only 11 bottles! :-)

That plastic insert can be reused and since it is made from polypropylene should last a very long time. That makes it a small investment if you have bottles it would fit.

Well, Margana,

 

Until the Luxury Brands Ink Miser Inkwell gets off the ground, we have the Erka Inkwell available from Goldspot Pens for about $ 15 for three, so around $ 5 each. I have six and find them most useful. They are listed under Rohrer und Klingner inks. Fit the R & K bottles, Aurora bottles, and others too numerous to mention.

 

The thread on the Erka is amusing and goes on to quite a length. Recommend looking it up when you have a few minutes.

 

Really enjoyed the comment that the Ink Miser is the only inkwell insert that "exactly fits" the Noodler's three-ounce bottle. The Erka is a bit smaller and does have some wiggle room. If you aren't careful, it may come out with the cap when you open the bottle.

 

Enjoy,

Yours,
Randal

I'll agree to disagree. I'm fine with dumping the last 5ml into a vial for free.

Hi Amber, you may contact us at john@luxurybrandsusa.com to open an account or we could run the business through one of our dealers.

But what about the rest of us? Or can you qualify Amber as a reseller?

But also if I have another bottle of the nearly empty one, I just transfer what's left to the new one.

I think Amber wants a gross of them for her minimalist collection of Noodler's...

 

I would only need about a dozen.

The stand-alone inkwell (the Inkshot) would be more useful if made of transparent plastic, to enable the user to see the color of the ink and the depth of the nib in the ink more clearly. Sure, it could stain, but it should be easily washable. A wider or weighted base would improve stability against tipping also.

Looked at the video last night. It seems to be a free-standing unit. I was expecting some sort of actual insert, or else something like the Visconti traveling inkwell (for less than Visconti prices).

For $5, I can transfer ink into a sample vial, and stabilize it with a copper pipe connector that has a hex nut end. Oh wait -- I already do.... And eyedroppers are pretty cheap at drugstores (for larger bottles, I'll use the longer size eyedroppers that came with the exclusive Noodler's inks from last fall's Commonwealth Pen Show.

I don't understand why she uses a full bottle if she want to demonstrate the utility to get the last drop of ink.

I'm just so impressed that in all the various youtube videos, filling the same pen with black ink (presumably Noodler's Black) the lady has spotless hands.

She'll never be able to contribute to "What color are your fingers today?"

Talk about trying to kill of one of our more entertaining and long-running threads*...

 

 

 

*To which I have, myself, contributed on the odd occasion.

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d
    • A Smug Dill
      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
    • amk
      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
