I’ve got a new ink tool to add to my collection, and this is the most pretty and delicate of them all. This past Christmas, my parents gifted me a Honey Glass Dip Pen.
It’s a gorgeous piece of art in and of itself. Its delicate nib is a piece of spiralled blown glass that holds the ink in the grooves. No matter the angle you write at, the grooves are all around allowing the ink to flow easily and smoothly. I was so surprised how easy it was to write with and how long one dip lasted. Perhaps this was my imagination but I also felt like it made my handwriting look nicer!
Okay, maybe it doesn’t make my handwriting nicer but that thought is just proof of how I romanticized what a beautiful pen can do.
