How to Write with Shimmering Inks

If you've been in the fountain pen world for awhile, chances are you've come across some of the new shimmering inks. At, we currently carry two varieties: J. Herbin 1670 Anniversary inks and the Diamine Shimmertastic collection. Both types are regular fountain pen ink with added sparkle for that glittery effect that is incredibly unique.

Some fountain pen users are hesitant to use this type of ink because they are afraid of damaging their fountain pens. Additionally, there is a lot of misinformation and supposition floating around out there about these inks and their affect on nibs and feeds. We've got good news for you!

Made by Bock in Germany, I've actually seen these nibs on a few other pen models, but this is really the first time we've had them available as a separate nib unit. So I wanted to answer some of the questions you may have.
