This is truly beautiful...
This is truly beautiful ink, and I can't wait for R&K's two iron gall inks to be
back in stock at JetPens (please?). It should be noted, for those not familiar
with iron gall inks (IGIs): they are more acidic than traditional OTC ink, thus
they can damage your fountain pens if you leave them inside. To avoid corrosion,
simply rinse your pen or other instrument after using IGI. If you've refilled a
cartridge with this ink, remove the cartridge and rinse your pen thoroughly. I
prevent my cartridges from drying out by stopping the opening with a bit of
kneaded rubber eraser. Store them upright in a repurposed cream container, such
as Neutrogena or Origins. The lid further prevents exposure to air, and you can
add a bag of cheap beads to keep one or two upright if you do not own enough
cartridges to prevent them tipping over. Better yet, reuse the cute yet
functional tin provided with a pack of 6 J. Herbin cartridges. Bleu Myosotis
(Forget-Me-Not Blue) is lovely and in stock now at JetPens!
