Are You An Ink Miser?08/16/2016
Do you hoard ink and use as little as possible? Miser or not, most of us want to get best value from the precious fluid. To facilitate that goal, Ink Miser has developed two products: the ink-shot inkwell and the intra-bottle inkwell. They debuted several months ago and have been mentioned a few times on Inkophile. If you aren’t familiar with them, let me introduce you.
The ink-shot inkwell makes it easy to fill a pen from a very small amount of ink. That makes even the most poorly designed ink bottle irrelevant. In addition, it is a useful container to hold pen cleaning fluid. My old-timers, er, vintage pens, are pleased to have a tiny spa with supporting sides for their delicate bones. Pampering does not necessarily mean spoiled and I am hoping to reap goodwill from such special care.
The intra-bottle inkwell raises the ink level closer to the bottle opening. For Noodler’s fans, it might rank as an essential tool since it makes filling from a partially full bottle easy.
Originally introduced in black, they are now available in a transparent version. Both Ink Miser inkwells are useful devices for an Inkophile though be prepared. They are a bit like chips. One will never be enough.
