Pen & Ink Fountain Pen and Sketchbook Review

I wrote up a quick review of the Pen & Ink Fountain Pen and Sketchbook over on my blog. The pen did not fair so well. Click here for more details, and pretty pictures.

I just got a fountain pen a couple days ago to test out. I like it fairly okay, especially the more I use it and get used to HOW to use it.

Some of the line variation is nice, kinda looks like a brush was used with skill, which I'd never be guilty of. :D

My biggest problem with it so far after 3 days of using it is the ink is not waterproof, and doesn't work well with watercolor sketching.

The only waterproof ink that I know of that is safe for fountain pens is Noodlers Bullet Proof ink.
Check out their website here
