Another ink from the Birmingham pen company. I wasn’t planning on reviewing another of their inks just yet but I received this as a freebie when I had a dud pen replaced. I had bought a couple of fountain pens from Birmingham pens and one would not write, I tried everything I could think of to no avail. Nick at Birmingham pens very kindly replaced the pen for me and sent me a bottle of this ink. It is not an ink I would have bought seeing it on the web site however the writing experience is quite different, I have filled my pen a number of times as I am using it a lot..
When I first read that the Fountain pen Hospital (FPH) had a limited release of Mabie Todd pens I was pretty excited as they are very popular collectables and pricey. At the time I did not know much about Mabie Todd pens but read nothing but great reviews.
To find out that the pens through FPH were not originals but new I was disappointed, but the price point was reasonable, so I thought what the hell let’s give it a go and buy one.
