My fountain pen has sat, unused, in my drawer for some time but I fished it out this morning to start using it again. Ink colour this time: purple - a change from the usual jet black. Well that's the eventual plan but first I have to wait for all residual traces of the black to depart. I flushed the business end of the pen under running water for several minutes earlier today yet three crosswords, several notes and a dozen scribbles later, the ink still writes black. Thank goodness I am a patient person with a passion for the feel of ink on fine quality writing paper. There's nothing quite like it.
