Parker Fountain Pen Recommendations For Ink

7
Found 9th May 2010
I love writing with fountain pens, and I write faster with them then ballpoints. However, my problem is the damn ink cartridges cost a small fortune for them and I can get through one ink cartridge in one exam nearly.

Any recommendations for alternatives?

You can get cartridges you refill yourself.


Didn't know this :oops: Probably should do as I've preferred cartridges pens since I was about 13/14!

Cheers to everyone. I ordered 2x 20 packs although they are black (i prefer blue) off ebay for £4.96, although the guy might give me combined postage to reduce it as well.

Might have to look into those refill cartridges and the ink, as could save a small fortune.

deadduck I ask as in the clan I play for (only for fun) we have someone called DeadDuck! :thumbsup:
