De Atramentis Great Writers Ink Bottle Charles Dickens Cement Grey

The "Tintenmanufaktur" De Atramentis from Hachenburg, Germany has been producing high quality inks for over 25 years. All inks are entirely hand made, according to recipes from different eras.
De Atramentis Great Writers Ink Bottle Charles Dickens Cement Grey is a pretty grey that shades well and is not terribly expensive to explore. It's a pretty plain bottle and the labels are not the most beautiful things ever, but I do appreciate that they are made by one family and they remain affordable to those of us who are into ink exploring. It cleans out pretty easily and it behaves well. I haven't had any issues with it. I just don't care for round bottles like this because I cannot stack them or arrange them easily in a small space. No big deal, though. The De Atramentis inks are presented without a box and I like that as it's a low waste bottle.

Flexy Nib Fountain Pens Compilation

Just a smattering of flexible vintage nibs, for fun! Yes, I wasted ink. Yes, I use my vintage pens. Yes, I have fun doing this. Please do not panic about how much ink is being used. It's insignificant compared to the amount in a bottle. Just enjoy the inky close-ups!
