Wet ink

Another photograph of the pens I used in an experiment a few years ago (mentioned in the October 24th edition of Chemical & Engineering News, by the way). I was testing how well different inks stood up to water and other solvents, and the outcome is part of my “How to maintain a laboratory notebook” page. If for some reason you’d like to see previous photograph of pens, see this post.  And, yes, that is a fountain pen in the beaker — a Cross (with Noodler’s Polar Blue).

    Sanford Uni-ball Vision fine (black). Stands up well in your test. The only disadvantage is that its prone to smudging.
