Pen & ink bottle
19/52 for the Flickr group 2019 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: S is for Spotty

I do like using fountain pens whenever possible as I love the way they write. When the last bottle of ink ran out, I treated myself to some more expensive ink and the bottle comes in this nice black and gold spotty box.

It's rather a desperation shot but I hadn't found anything spotty all week, partly due to cold rainy weather keeping me indoors. The pen was £3 with free postage from China. It's rather heavy, so I don't put the cap on the end of the barrel when writing like I normally do, but it writes well and is just the thing for making To-Do lists.

That is a lovely box as well as a lovely pen.

Thanks. I was amazed at how good the pen was considering it was ridiculously cheap. The ink comes in a lovely selection of colours too. It wasn't easy to choose which shade of blue I wanted.

Is that a Jinhao? I've got several of their models and find the nibs on most of them lovely considering their cheapness, although I do find them a bit heavy.

Yes, it's a £3 Jinhao. I can't remember whether it was you or Jacey who mentioned them, but at that price I couldn't resist!

It is rather heavy, which is why I don't post the cap, but it's just the thing for writing To-Do lists and brief diary entries. I'm always a bit wary of having my good pens just knocking about on my desk for every day use, so this is perfect.
