    Default Is Manuscript brand calligraphy ink safe in fountain pens?

    The brand web site says that their product is "[v]ibrant ink to easily refill your ink converter". But can anyone here report on their use of the product?

    It's this ink:

    It's not calligraphy ink, it's fountain pen ink, and is therefore designed for (and perfectly safe to use in) fountain pens. I have a few bottles and it's fine. I quite like the blue, which is a nice safe 'school' ink.

    They also make a range of dip pen (calligraphy) and artists' inks, which are obviously not designed for fountain pens.

    In order to use an ink in a fountain pen it has to say fountain pen ink on the bottle. From your picture it is clear that this does and therefore it is safe for fountain pens. Dip pen and maybe sometimes specific dip pen calligraphy inks might contain at least one adhesive component that would be unsuitable for fountain pens and that would make it only suitable for dip pens. However fountain pens used for calligraphy can safely use some safe calligraphy inks.

    Manuscript is a brand do lot of calligraphy fountain pens and they are different than the dip pens for calligraphy. So most of their ink are meant for using for the fountain pens that has feeders to the pen nibs.
    They must be having some exclusively made ink as permanent ink for documenting using dip pens. (Leonard nibs is produced in manuscript I guess )
    This ink bottle is marked in three different language to indicate for what pens they are suitable and they are for Fountain pens.
    Dip pens are not call FOUNTAIN PENS. I don't know if dip pens belongs to the category of FOUNTAIN PENS.
