Disappointed with these pens. First off, they are too short to use without having the caps on. Weird design decision. Secondly, on all the paper I've tried the ink does not flow well and you often get dry scratches across the paper, not smooth ink. This is the limiting factor and what is causing me to reconsider ever using them.
Yeah--one of mine works really well and the other two don't. If anyone has recommendations for other pens that would be compatible with this ink, I'm sure there'd be many people grateful to hear them.
Any fountain pen which uses standard international cartridges will work with this ink. For instance, the Nemosine Singularity or most fountain pens from Conklin or Monteverde. If you don't plan to use it in a fountain pen, I can recommend some places that you could post it as a giveaway for fountain pen users.
I contacted an online retailer who stocks the pens and they were so kind and sent me detailed description of how to get the ink to flow. There were two steps, one of which was to soak the nib in water overnight (I think). Agree with oddly short pen body. But I love the inks - the colors and smaller quantity for frequent changeability. Would love to find more pens with which to use the inks.
