Can I use India ink in my fountain pens?

India Ink Pens

The India ink variety of fountain pen ink is more like paint than regular pen inks, and may dry more easily. In addition, India ink contains acid and some fountain pen enthusiasts advise against using it. You should check your model of fountain pen to see if India ink is recommended. In most fountain pens, India ink flows well and is ideal for writing, sketching, lettering, calligraphy and freehand drawing. Faber Castell pens, especially artist's pens, accept black India pen inks. We highly recommend India pen ink refills for your Faber-Castell pens. You can also buy pigmented or colored India inks. Montblanc pens accept India ink.
