I love the looks of old dip pens, especially ones with an unusual twist like this one with a curvy oak holder. Unfortunately, I don’t care to use dip pens. I always forget the proper way to pull the nib and end up spattering my page with ink!! Who knows though, maybe eventually I will learn to love using them. I didn’t like the Tombow pens when I first tried them and here I am making yet another drawing using one!!
