Glass Dip Pen - Sakura
Glass pens work well with virtually any ink and are easy to clean, making them a popular choice for testing new inks. But they aren't just for testing. They are easy to use and can write multiple sentences between dips, so they're more convenient for writing than a typical dip pen. Additionally, the glass nib will never rust or wear out, so it can last a lifetime if well preserved.
The dip pen is easy to clean. Rinse with clean water and dry with a paper towel after use. You only need to spend 10 seconds cleaning before switching other colors.
To use this pen:
Dip the tip part-way into a bottle of your favorite ink.
Gently scrape the sides of the nib against the opening of the bottle to drain the excess ink. The only ink left on the nib should be the ink held inside the tiny capillary grooves that spiral around the tip.
As you write, turn the pen slightly whenever the pen starts to run dry, allowing the ink from other grooves to be used.
