Looking at a better way of filling a fountain pen.
So I’m new to the hobby. Had a cartridge fountain pen way back in middle school that made a mess all the time. I have two actual decent pens now Right Choice Painting Company with bock Nibs Fine & Extra Fine.
When it came to filling I did the dip the whole nib into the ink and use the plunger to draw ink up into the pen. This make a mess at least to me even though I kept the ink off me and everything else I didn’t want it on.
My question is, I’m thinking of getting a hypodermic needle with a blunt tip draw the ink from the well with that then inject it into the converter tipped up finally popping the nib onto the end.
Obviously this would mean I would initially have to wait for the ink to be drawn into the nib at first use but good things come to those who wait.
Thoughts on this?
